Miner Family Vineyards is a dynamic family owned winery tucked into the eastern hills of the Oakville appellation, squarely within the heart of Napa Valley. Founded in 1998 by Dave & Emily Miner along with his folks Ed & Norma, Miner is defined first and foremost by a sensational portfolio of wines, wines consistently characterized by and committed to individualistic style and uncommon quality. In only a few short years, Miner has identified, sought and secured a number of California's finest vineyard sites to produce and showcase a wide array of varietals. Each wine is crafted in a style to encapsulate the distinctive elements and the indelible fingerprints of their respective vineyards. This combination of excellent vineyard sites along with passionate and thoughtful winemaking injects the necessary components for creating profoundly joyful wines.

This place is a wonderful place to come with a small group. Park yourself on the patio with a great view and enjoy wonderful wines. The staff is great at describing the wines and helping navigate what you want to taste. Bring a sandwich to enjoy on the patio with your wines! Also, bring wonderful cookies if you can, they...

This was a great stop on the Silverado Trail. They're $25 tasting included five different wines. Everything was served and a glass specific to the wine type. They also let you sit on the porch and enjoy your sample, not rushing you through like some of the wineries on the trail. The staff was friendly and accommodating, fitting us in... More

We went to a nice wine tasting at Miner Winery. Since it was in June, the weather was warm. The vineyards were beautiful with grapes growing on the vines. The views of Napa Valley from Miner Winery are stunningly beautiful. Staff is very pleasant.

We had a lovely time at Miner. Spectacular views. Good wines. My only criticism is a $25 tasting is a little steep-indicative of a pretentious winery

Miner Family Winery provided a chill, friendly walk-in experience. They have a moderately sized but very nicely appointed tasting room. We hadn't had their wines before but found them tasty and unpretentious. With so many of the smaller wineries in the area requiring advance bookings, this was a nice option during a busy weekend.

We happened upon Miner Winery a few years ago. We loved each wine they poured. We decided to join the wine club. The place does get busy but if you grab a comfy seat outside or find a spot inside the tasting room and relax you wI'll have a great experience. The service is wonderful & staff are super friendly.... More

We were a little hesitant to take the $35 tour, but signed up anyway (make reservations!). To our surprise, we realized that their tours are all private rather than being group tours at we had done at other locations. We loved our tour guide, Melissa, and were very please with her wine knowledge and the time she took to sit... More
