Owner description: Come and enjoy an intimate experience at the most romantic winery in Napa Valley. 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.

We just got back from Napa and after talking about all the wineries we went to, we cannot stop talking about O'Brien. From the story of the vineyard and owners to the wines, everything was perfect (especially the wine). Steve poured for us and was extremely personable, knowledgeable and made us feel like part of the family. We joined the... More

You need to book the tour of this winery in advance. It is a small, intimate winery. We visited while in Napa recently, and ended up being the only couple on a morning tour. Meg gave us a great tasting and tour. We are not winer experts by any means, but Meg took the time to explain the subtle differences... More

Had the fortune of visiting with long-time members. Barb and Bart made us feel at home and we felt like old friends immediately. The wine was as good as I have ever had and easily the best of our trip. (Of course, we ordered some) What a GREAT experience, absolutely made the trip!

I recently visited and wanted to say what a pleasure it was to come for a bit. We only left as we had a wedding to get to. Meg took care of us and was an absolute joy. She truly made the day memorable for us. We have been wine club members for over a year and look forward to... More

This is my new favorite winery. Yesterday some friends and I stopped at Obrien's for what we assumed was going to be just the first of a couple wineries we were going to see that day. Not so. Obrien's wines were so amazing, and the scenery so serene, that we ended up spending the next three hours with our wonderful... More

Visit this winery by appointment only. Definitely wonderful experience. This was a leisurely wine tasting with excellent wines. Julio gave us the history of the property, owners and wine. Wines aren't sold by distribution but directly through the winery to its members. Needless to say we became members. We spent the afternoon outside in the vineyard and even got to... More

Wonderful reds, great ambiance. The music and setting were very casual and friendly. Red wines are excellent, no added sulfites, unfiltered wines. Generous pours. 3 wine tastings waived after joining the wine club. Great information Along with wonderful wines and cheese platter. A do not miss if you want a non commercial, real wine tasting experience!

The location was beautiful, staff attentive, wine was delicious. Even Bart the owner came out and chatted. There was a tasting/tour fee of $25 that was well worth it. They welcomed us to the vineyard and served wine and cheese. Meg gave us a tour of the winery. The grapes were ripe and ready to harvest. Thanks Meg and Bart... More

As part of our limo wine tour our guide had O'Brien as our first stop and we all loved it. They treated us so nice and really took time with sharing their wines with us. We sat outside by the grape vines enjoying the view. They even let us taste the grapes to show us the different tastes with each... More

This is how you imagine a true Napa Valley experience..we are from Boston and have had a retail experience at Napa until we met Steve, Ray and the team at O'Brien.. Siting in the backyard of the owners, picking grapes from the vines, tasting from the casks and simply loving every single wine we tasted is the experience we will... More
