First, I planned this winery as the first stop on a three day visit to Napa Valley, based mostly on the review here on Trip Advisor. Obviously I arrived on the wrong day. They couldn't find my reservation and seemed surprised I was there even though I showed them my reservation on my phone. The guy serving us didn't seem... More

My wife and I recently visited O'Brien and we really enjoyed the time we spent their. We felt as though their red wines were some of the best we had tried during the week. We liked the red's so much we joined their wine club to receive their reds 4 times a year. The setting is beautiful with a great... More

Took a break from the wine club here but missed the Seduction and other amazing reds at such good prices. Enjoyed meeting Luiz (new guy) and had a great tasting - we are back baby

Unfortuntely, we stopped at O'Brien winery as the first stop on our saturday tour of Napa wineries. I say unfortuntely because nothing else compared to the experience in terms of how we were greated and treated and the high quality of wines they produce. Their red wines were by far the best we had all day. The remainder of the... More

After spending most of the day at several amazing wineries, we were pleasantly surprised to find that our last stop at O'Brien's ranked as our group's favorite. Ray and Steve made the experience very entertaining, and the wines they served us were spectacular....very nice full bodied cabs that justify their ratings and made it a "no brainer" to sign up...

Our visit to O'Brien Estate was deeply enjoyable. Indeed, the wines were beautiful examples of the best Napa has to offer; complex, concentrated, and elegant, however, it was our host, Ray Williams, who made our visit extraordinary. Ray was hospitable, knowledgeable, and, well...just downright fun!

Stopped at the winery with friends. It was out last stop of the day. We were greeted by friendly and funny Ray. His partner Steve helped with our group. Ray and Steve made us feel like family and educated us on the high quality of their vineyard. We had a surprise visit by the owner Bart, who shared his passion... More

O’Brien Estate is by far my favorite winery in the valley. I was born and raised in Napa and have been to a lot of wineries throughout the valley. This winery in particular stands out above the rest. I love how intimate the winery is and hasn’t sold out like most “Disney Land” wineries in the valley, where they measure... More
