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.

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

It was like we fell into southern France. We arrived on a very warm Sunday around 3 o'clock...so it wasn't so busy. Rich history. Fields of vineyards. Beautiful landscape. Take a glass of wine outside under the tall shaded patio.

This is one of the most perfectly groomed places I have ever seen. It is completely gorgeous everywhere you look. We love wineries who make an effort to be family-friendly, and Inglenook has a lovely outside seating area to their bistro where you can sip wine while your kids play with old-school wooden sailboats in the fountain out front.

I'm a Napa Valley local I've been here a couple times before, and the wines were never great, but the experience is getting more expensive and more difficult every year. I have a guest arriving next week, in Napa for one day, and wanted to make a reservation for an Inglenook experience tour (the tasting alone is not worth the... More

This is in our top five list of must places to visit in Napa. The tour and wines are a must. It is simply beautiful outside and in. They did a top notch job. You will love it here. We visited 30 wineries and caves in the week we were in Napa and this was our favorite winery tour.

My family and I enjoyed our recent visit. I learned a lot about the Coppola influence on the winery and the overall history. What was disappointing was the wine experience. It is a bit expensive for the tour and taste so it seems the target audience is the "experienced" wine drinker; however, I was introducing my 21 year old daughter... More

Inglenook is one of a handful of iconic treasures in the Napa Valley and should be visited by anyone with an interest in the valley and how it has evolved over the last century.
