From the moment we walked in we were treated like royalty and we had the place to ourselves- so we felt waited on hand and foot- you couldn't beat this first class experience! We had butler service pouring our wines, truly a fine tasting. The wines are delicious- all of them. And they paired the wines with a cheese tasting.... More

We toured this vineyard years ago when it was known as Rubicon and as a wine member have attended very fun and an over the top Harvest Party as well. We were now back in Napa for a birthday weekend and wanted to share a great upscale all-around tasting experience with our guests. Inglenook definitely fit the bill. Francis Ford... More

We visited Inglenook late April and were given an incredible tour of the entire property, including the wine caves and cellars. Our tour guide, Harold Francis, was one of the best representatives I have ever had the pleasure to speak with. His knowledge of the history of the Inglenook brand and his ability to bring it to life amazed us... More

I went with a group while attending a conference in the area. We went to Inglenook for a evening of dining and touring the museum. The museum was fabulous. So much history, very fascinating, and unlike some museums did not have a lot of boring items just to fill the space. The Tucker car on the second story was fascinating.... More

Francis Ford Coppola? A landscape steeped in rich history? Tasting Wine in a Cave? YES PLEASE! While some people might think a winery owned by a famous Hollywood director might be littered with Godfather paraphernalia and props for the hit movie Dracula, Inglenook was nothing of the sort. Immediately upon entering the grounds, we could feel the deep historical significance... More

We visited 9 wineries in Napa Valley in two days, and this was tied for our favorite experience. The 1.5 hour tour is a bit pricey, but worth it. The property is beautiful, and there is so much history. This history is told by the guide in a series of great stories. We walked up the hill behind the main... More

Inglenook, founded in 1879 has a very interesting history. Like so many wineries it has had it's ups and downs. For many years the brand was not highly regarded. But thanks to Mr Coppola's perseverance that has all changed. During our recent visit to the winery we had the pleasure of sampling a number of the wines. They were all... More

Along with Robert Mondavi Winery it is a must go attraction in Napa Valley. I'm not saying that the best wines are made from their grapes but you only can understand the valley's history if you go in those places. The winery tour was very informative and interactive. Our guide was very helpful and patient. Our group had only 6... More
