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

I was really surprised at this place! It was personal from the moment we arrived and we had a great time sitting in the backyard amongst the vineyards, eating cheese and sipping wine. We liked it so much we joined their wine club!

We had an amazing tasting at O Brien estate. We had the first tasting appointment and we were the only ones on the vineyard for the first hour of our tasting. It is unique that you get to sip wine and tour the vineyard at the same time. Very informative, laid back, and great wine in a picturesque, relaxing atmosphere.... More

My fiancée and I went here based on prior tripadvisor reviews but without knowing that you had to make a reservation (apparently we skimmed over that part!). We were lucky they didn't have anyone booked at that time and graciously invited us to stay anyways. We were able to relax in the outside chairs, enjoy the weather, tour the grounds... More

This was our first Napa Wine Tasting experience and it was a great way to start. It offers an intimate, up close look at an amazing place. The wine tells a love story and you can taste the love that goes into the wine too. We went out to the vineyards while we heard what makes this place special. It... More

This was our first winery we visited on a 5 day visit to Napa. After 5 days we realized that some wineries are more just into the tastings sitting at a table, others include a tour, and some are in between. This I would say was in between and I would highly recommend it. It is a small winery and... More

We went to O'Brien on a bicycle trip through the valley for our daughter's 21st birthday. It was the prize of the tour of small wineries. We have been back several times, joined the wine club and savor our regular shipments. O'Brien wines are delicious! Every time we have visited it has been a personalized experience. We ate lunch between... More

My family and I visited O'Brien Winery on a whim as we didn't have anything planned the day we stopped here. However, our trip to Napa would not have been complete if we would have never visited O'Brien! Their wine is the best we tasted in Napa. We were greeted by Hulio with a glass of wine, and went straight... More

My boyfriend arranged a picnic just last week at O'Brien Estate Winery. As you arrive, you are welcomed by a friendly staff. Along a rustic path, we were escorted to a picnic table surrounded by the grapevines and laced with mountains like in a portrait. As I sat down, I looked around at the views. My eyes filled with tears.... More

Though you will need a reservation to visit the Estate, you certainly will not be disappointed. The wines here are absolutely fantastic and if you're lucky enough (become a member) you'll be able to try their winemakers own wines KIND. The staff here is very attentive and accommodating. We could not be happier with our visit and wine selections.

O'Brien goes far beyond just tasting wines. We were able to actually walk in the vineyards and learn about the different types of vines and the grapes they yield. Julio was THE BEST ! ! He explained each of the wine selections, their unique compositions and tastes, and what grapes went into the production. Your experience in Napa is not... More
