The Inglenook legacy began in 1879 when Gustave Niebaum, a Finnish sea captain, wine connoisseur and entrepreneur, came to Rutherford to build a wine estate that would rival Europe's finest. When Niebaum's grandnephew, John Daniel, Jr. inherited the chateau and vineyards in the 1930s, Inglenook had already earned international acclaim. Francis and Eleanor Coppola purchased the property in 1975 and have spent forty years reuniting the original vineyards, returning winemaking operations to the chateau, and restoring Inglenook's illustrious heritage with the help of renowned wine consultant Stephane Derenoncourt and Managing Director and Winemaker Philippe Bascaules. In honor of this estate and its historical significance, we have restored the name, Inglenook.

Wow! What an eye opener and lesson about Napa winemaking history! This place is stunning and their wines are really a treasure! I love that Coppola has brought it back to its roots! This was probably the most outstanding wine tour we took in our 2 visits to Napa last year and this year. It was also probably the one... More

Inglenook was the highlight of our day in Napa. I brought friends from the UK here for a tour and wine-tasting expecting it would be a good overview of the history of Napa Valley and they delivered. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, the tour guide was informative and really fun, and the wine tasting spectacular. In fact I did not... More

Wonderful hospitality, very friendly staff and the best tour in the Valley. Bill was our tour guide and he didn't disappoint. We missed out on the tour the year before because we did not book ahead, but we were not disappointed when we came back the second time.

History abounds in Inglenook and Francis Ford Coppola succeeded in restoring that feel. Tasting rooms, gift shop and memorabilia on the ground floor. Check out the guestbook and see some famous names. A small museum on the second floor accessible by a grand staircase.

We visited here as part of a private group event. We were immediately impressed at the front entrance, which has the look and feel of a grand European country estate. A walk inside feels a bit like a walk back in time. The displays provide an interesting glimpse into the storied history of this winery, along with memorabilia and historical... More

Our hotel in Yountville suggested that we visit Inglenook, so we gave it a go while driving up the valley. We had visited Coppola's other vineyard a couple of years ago, but this one is more traditional. We took a look around the grounds and inside the buildings and had a drink in the cafe (which was very good value).... More

The Coppola family have brought the venerable Inglenook Winery back to its rightful glory. From the original "inglenook" of Captain Niebaum in the 1870's to the magnificent carved staircase leading to views of many of the classic wooden barrels and vats--and the extensive collection of antique "magic Lanterns"--the experience is unforgettable and a must on any visit to the Napa...

And that is saying something since it was a 17-day vacation including Hollywood, Santa Cruz, San Francisco, San Diego and Disneyland! This still was the best part of the trip. I was attending with my mother whom doesn't drink, and my 13 year old nephew. Since I was the only one drinking on the tour and the only one with... More

Had a really enjoyable 90min tour at the Inglenook Estate in July 15. Had a very knowledgeable guide who told us all about the estate, its history, current situation and wine making process. We hadn't appreciated beforehand that the moviemaker Coppola now owned the estate and lived in the house at the back of the grounds. Beautiful chateau building with... More
