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.

Rubicon Wine has been the special occasion wine for our family of years. So naturally when our two teenage boys joined us in Napa we took the opportunity to take them on a visit to the winery that is much talked about in our family. We were greeted by a energetic, friendly tour host Florian. He was awesome! He shared... More

I came here on the way back from Sacramento going to S.F. and it is about 45 minutes to an hour off of the 101. The chateau was very nice, very quiet, and not many people were there. You can tour the house as you carry a glass of wine, and the scenery was very nice as well. The place... More

This property is jaw droopingly beautiful. Open entering the facility, you feel as if you are transported back in time to a different era. Our host, Herald, was outstanding. He was full of knowledge, stories, and made the experience enjoyable. I would recommend this winery and make sure to ask for Herald!

We took the 90 minute tour and it was worth the time and the price. It was a casual tour led by a most informative guide. Seeing the property without the crowds made it feel very personalized. Its very impressive what they have done to the property to restore its glorious past.

This was our last stop in Napa Valley and what an incredible way to end the day. The main building is absolutely amazing. The grounds are incredibly well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful. And then there was the wine! Eight of shared a few bottles of wine that was only available at the vineyard itself and along... More

Inglenook is a standout location in Napa, it is a beautiful chateau and vineyard, with delicious olive oil to boot. It is a tour and tasting highlighting Napa's history as well as Cinematic artifacts donated by F.F.C.

We went on the tour that was $50 per person with a Frenchman. Completely worth it. We learned so much and finished with a private tasting paired with wine. Truly one of the most beautiful wineries in Napa!

Absolutely recommend visiting Inglenook. Lovely. You may even have a Francis Ford Coppola sighting like we did! I would suggest a tour rather than just a tasting, because the property is gorgeous!

Excellent informative tasting - expensive but worth it. Wonderful setting and spectacular tasting rooms in a beautiful dating back 150 years. If you only have time for one winery, choose this one!

Great place to visit even if you are not participating in a tasting. The Copolla relics fill the top floor museum and the building and property had an astounding old world beauty.
