We did the Inglenook Experience and it was by far the best winery tour I have been on. We had a cute French guy that was our tour guide and he was very informative. Beautiful grounds! The best part was the tasting in a private room and I am in love with the Rubicon. There was 4 of us that... More

We have been several times to this winery and never been disappointed. Very knowledgeable tasting room crew and interesting displays. One of the most beautiful buildings in the area.

The setting of this winery is breathtaking. We drove up on a gorgeous afternoon. The museum has so many interesting things, like Francis Ford Coppola's zoetrope collection and movie memorabilia. Sitting outdoors under a canopy of trees sipping an excellent glass of wine was heavenly! Definitely worth the trip.

The Coppola family is very generous to open their winery and family history to the public. They show an appreciation for the history of the estate including their predecessors. The outdoor seating at the wine bar has a bucolic setting that I would compare favorably to any i Europe.

Confess that Inglenook is simply one of my favorite places to visit when I'm in Napa. During previous trips, I really enjoyed the Amuse Tasting (no longer offered?) and the Experience tour; while this visit I decided to try the Bistro as I had some time to kill between vineyard visit b and vineyard visit III. Simple enough...baguettes of bread... More

Can't fault the setting, straight out of a film who could be entitled 'Once upon a time a wine château somewhere in France'. The kind of presentation that only Hollywood can deliver. Knowing the name of the owner this should not be a surprise. But i came for the wines, more precisely to see, taste actually, the wines signed by... More

The estate is one of the more historically significant and Francis Ford Copala has done an excellent job. The tour is very informative and the estate facility has been preserved so well you will truly appreciate the walk and information. Of course the tasting is OUTSTANDING. The Rubicon is the highlight but each sample is worth the tour on its... More

We were recommended to the Inglenook Winery and took a 90 minute guided tour and tasting at a cost of $50 per head. The tour was excellent with the guide being extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of wine making and the local peculiarities. The estate itself is beautiful, having been restored to its former glory over the last 30 years... More

When we first pulled into Inglenook we were very impressed. We didn’t have reservations but the girl behind the desk was able to squeeze us into a tasting. Tasting room was amazing, equally were the wines and cheese. Unfortunately our Sommelier basically ruined the experience. After making the mistake of telling him we had previously toured Mondavi and Domain Chandon... More
