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.

Whereas many of the wineries can be crowded and somewhat commercialized, the O'Brien Estate Winery is available "by appointment only," affording you personalized attention with a very knowledgeable guide. We were able to meander along the vines, and Julio would come find us with the next wine for us to taste. The wines were delicious and are only sold to... More

My wife and I stopped in to taste after hearing about their amazing wines and were not disappointed. Although the facilities themselves are unimpressive, we were offered comfortable Adirondack chairs on their back lawn and our host periodically brought us various wines to taste while we soaked up the sun and enjoyed the view on a warm valley day. Much... More

My husbands cousin and her husband were visiting and asked us to join them for a couple of days in the Napa Valley. Gone are the days of free wine tasting and getting the glass for free too! That's how long it's been since we have gone wine tasting in the Napa Valley. They picked this winery to visit based... More

We were looking for a new place to try that was small, high quality and intimate. O'Brien hit all those and more. We were lucky enough to spend 2 hours in the company of Luis our fantasy I host and got to meet the winemaker, his dog and the GM too. Fabulous range of wines for such a small estate... More

My wife and I visited O'Brien Winery on a whim last May after reading about it in a local magazine during our trip. We called and asked if any tastings were open, and luckily, they said yes. O'Brien is so unlike other wineries because you really learn a lot about the wine and get to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. We... More

Loved the tour of the winery, and the time learning about so many ins and outs of the winery. Beautiful grounds- could have stayed all day!

What a sweet little winery! We had the best private tasting here, Luis was a blast! This place is by appointment only, so make sure to send them an email to set up a time. You don't want to miss out on this little gem.

We visited O'Brien Estate in December based on a number of "highly recommended!" comments by a friend, and we were definitely not disappointed. A smaller winery with a very personal and comfortable seated tasting experience. We were treated to a number of incredible and unique wines, with our host opening a few extras based on what we liked. We came... More

We had a great time at this small winery in Napa. This is an appointment only place, and because of that you are certain to have a one on one experience. We sat down and enjoyed wine after wine, there was not a single wine that we did not like in the whole tasting. We enjoyed it so much we... More
