Of our two days in Napa valley this was our favorite place. We sat in the back yard overlooking the vineyard and Julio brought us wine and snacks. We loved the wine, the staff and view. This is a must visit! We loved it so much we went back the next day. We will be back again!

Visited vineyard based on reviews and couldn't have been more delighted. The staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable. This was our first trip to Napa and was disappointed.

The winery is Lovely, small, and intimate. The guide is very knowledgable and taught wine newbies exactly why they arrange their vineyard with the different grape variety, about the wine 'hybrids' and the history of that facility. Their estate is a family owned vineyard that is passionate about what they do, and do not sell their wine to anyone besides... More

We visited 5 wineries in two days and this was hands down our favorite! Even went back the following day to re-visit our favorite and buy more. Julio was very attentive and knowledgeable, and it was so pleasant sitting outside to experience the tasting overlooking the vineyards. O'Brien's will be at the top of our list on our next visit...

This is a great way to do a wine tour; staying at one location and thoroughly tasting most of the wines they offer rather than blasting down a couple of sips and moving on to the next. I'm no wine connoisseur, but their wine is exceptional as well as their staff. Some say 90minutes, we took 2+ hours and it... More

Nice Place to visit but they don't welcome people coming over without reservation. We tried to buy a few bottles since tasting was only by appointment but still it welcome. There are so many better places to visit around....

Beautiful scenery and a wonderful place to while away an afternoon. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and the wines were gorgeous. Also the owner's cats were around which was lovely. Nice cheese too!

We LOVED this place! A small, private vineyard that grows 100% of it's own grapes(does not buy grapes from other growers) and makes 100% of it's wines on sight. Not many of the vineyard's in the area can say that. O'Brien's also does not distribute it's wines.....it only makes and sells it's spectacular wines to it's CLUB Members. We loved... More

My wife and I visited over 11 wineries on our honeymoon, but this by far was the worst. This winery took us out to a table and just sat us down with no knowledge or any type of experience. Now let me say this the views are amazing and the wine was good, but not great. However I feel if... More

Went here yesterday to O'Brien Estate Winery. Which was marvelous and an unique experience. It was a private tour which was awesome and the field was lush of vines.
