You will walk through our vineyards and winery and learn how wine is made from vine to bottle during your tasting of our 94 point Robert Parker rated wines. Reservations required. Be sure to inquire about joining the O'Brien Estate Wine Club while memberships are still available. We offer a series of wines that describes the diffent stages of a deepening relationship between 2 people - the story is told by the names of the wines and the poetry on the back label written by Bart and Barb O'Brien. Our goal is to touch your heart before the wine touches your lips. The wine is extraordinary; the experience even more so. « less

A small, family owned boutique winery with incredible wines. When you make your reservation, be sure to ask if Ray, who was our delightful and knowledgeable guide, is available. You will not be disappointed by either Ray or the wines. One of the highlights of our first trip to Napa.

Lovely experience outside by the vineyard, Richard guided us expertly through each wine, taking us step by step from dating to life long passions. We were a group of 10, the wines generously poured a private delicious afternoon Thank you

We stopped at O'Brien at the end of our tour. Bart (the owner) was sure to sit down with us and explain the wine and the story of how it came about. He took us through all the tastings as we sat in chairs on the lawn in front of the vineyards. It was not the busy rushed experience we... More

This is my third trip to Napa and this has now become a must visit if tou are serious about wine. This is not a setting for those looking to over drink or big party groups. The tour is set on the yard, among the vineyards. The service was great and very amicable. All of their wines are high quality... More

One of favorite finds in Napa valley is this winery. A gem. The owners, the O'Briens, are wonderful hosts and have outstanding wines. The winery is beautiful, their tastings are terrific, and the quality of their wines-white and red- is amazing. We love the place. You will too.

O'Brien Estates was one of our first stops, but we weren't disappointed. We were welcomed like old friends, immediately handed a glass of wine and walked outside to the picnic table that overlooks the vineyards. Eric was very knowledgable and gracious and shared the story of Bart & Barb beautifully. We got to visit the barrel room and made sure... More

From the owners, Bart and Barb, to the staff, everything was perfect! The wine tasting is done at picnic tables on the estate. All of the wine is made and bottle on the estate; the story about the winery and the wines is unique and absolutely enthralling. I will absolutely recommend this experience to anyone who likes a unique and... More

We really enjoyed our visit to the O'Brien Winery. Bart and Barb were wonderful hosts, and we learned quite a bit about the operation of a small winery. But the best part was the wine! We are partial to reds, and they have some top self selections. I recommend a visit and make sure to bring home a couple of... More
