We are by appointment only. Please call (707)252-VINE(8463) to inquire about our experiences. The cost is $40.00 per person. We regretfully are not permitted to have anyone under 21 years of age nor allow any pets on the premises. Our award winning wines come from our 40 acres in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. From grape growing to bottling, the entire winemaking process is managed at the estate. The vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc. Our wines are sought after by collectors and have received many awards, including a recent 96 point score for our 2012 Unrestrained Reserve Bordeaux Blend.

We visited O'Brien Estate based on TA reviews and we where not disappointed. We where meet by our host Luis who escorted us to a peaceful outdoor patio seating with low music and beautiful vineyard view. Since they limit the number of visitors, our party of four enjoyed a relaxing hour of great wines and conversation. Owner Bart O'Brien stopped... More

We visited O'Brien after reading about it on TA. Really pretty backyard patio for tastings. Everyone was really really nice, even when we accidentally mixed up our appointment time! We met the owner, O'brien, and tasted some great wines. Definitely check it out! It's a small place and wasn't crowded like other wineries

So, tastings here are not cheap, but if you're going to splurge on one winery during your Napa visit this is a good one to pick. Beautiful setting, very much not overcrowded as there are limited tasting spots available, so you'll get personal service and a relaxed, quiet backyard experience. It is not rushed, we were there well over an... More

My husband and I had a fantastic afternoon at O'Brien Estate. The wine was delicious and the property was gorgeous. Small and intimate, not a zoo like some of the larger wineries. Julio was incredibly knowledgeable and informative, and we left there as members of their wine club. A must when in Napa!

Julio was a great host. Thoroughly enjoyed our wine here, especially the reds. Can't wait to get our order, however the bottles will be going right in the cellar until a special occasion.

We visited O'Brien Estate Winery based on Tripadvisor reviews. Well we couldn't have made a better decision!!!! This winery is truly a hidden gem, which I almost do not want to write this review because I don't want to expose them to getting overly busy and selling out of their very limited selection of amazing wine. We sat with Luis... More

This was my favorite vineyard of the trip. Luis (our host) was fun, humorous and made sure my friends and I were well taken care of. The wine tasting and tour was educational and relaxed. The atmosphere was charming, quaint, and in my opinion had the over-all best quality wine we tasted during the trip! A must-visit

Very personal experience here at O'Brien. They don't distribute their wines so getting here at the winery (or by joining the wine club) is the only way to purchase the wines - which are excellent! Very relaxing atmosphere. Highly recommended and we'll also return next time we visit.

This was by far the most relaxed vineyard that we visited in Napa. It was so great to kick back and enjoy each wine with ample amount of time. First of all, Luis did an awesome job showing us the various types of grapes; we even tasted some of them! He was so informational and showed us how the vineyard... More

I loved visiting the O'Briens Estate Winery. I emailed them ahead of time to set up a time we would like to stop by. When we arrived Julio got us settled in with a glass of wine, and invited us to enjoy it anywhere we would like in the garden area. The perfect place to sit and relax with the... More
