Experience innovative Wine & Food Pairings at the legendary Charles Krug Winery on Saturdays and Sundays! Our Vintage Select Wine & Food Pairing is an exclusive experience that begins with a tour followed by a guided tasting in our private library. (Reservations required 48 hours in advance.) Our Cucina Pairings offer a more casual experience. Guests can choose from a selection of warm, winter Italian dishes paired with the perfect glass of wine.

The oldest winery in Napa Valley, Charles Krug recently renovated its historic Redwood Cellar, turning it into one of the region's most stunning Tasting Rooms. Named one of the "Top 10 California Tasting Experiences" by Food & Wine and winner of the 2015 Architecture and Landscape Award for Best of Wine Tourism, this is the winery that put Napa on the map. A must-see for anyone interested in the legacy of Napa Valley winemaking. We offer several tasting options daily, including barrel tastings, private tours, and exclusive tastings of our limited release wines. Walk-ins are welcome, or call to make an appointment.

Oldest winery in Napa and big historical significance as the ORIGINAL Mondavi winery & vineyard. The main building has recently been updated and it is beautiful with a large and comfortable tasting room. Our tasting room attendant, Jessica, is a local girl and was able to tell the Mondavi story and present all the wines at the same time. The... More

Great wines, beautiful surroundings and history. I enjoyed the history of the winery and the modern interior. If you are in the area it is a site to see. We took the wine train and tours. This was one of the tours on the trip.

I didn't plan to stop at Charles Krug, but I had their wines in the past and knew I liked them. So with a few hours between my scheduled tastings, I decided to stop and I'm glad I did. The tasting room is beautiful, the staff was friendly, and the wines were spectacular at a very reasonable price. I really... More

I must say, I was intrigued by their advertisement of "pizza on the lawn" on Saturdays. Although they do have a beautiful property and tasting room, the pizza pricing is an absolute rip off! They want $19 for a personal pizza, and $25 if it is paired with wine. Not to mention, the personal pizza is extremely personal, if I... More

We would love for you to visit again and try some of our wines, which is of course our specialty. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. More

We had a small group of friends take a private tour of this winery and we all found it fascinating. One of the oldest wineries in Napa Valley, there is lots of history here. We took the standard tour of the facility and then got to taste some of the wind right out of the barrel. It gives you a... More

Stunning decor! Was our first visit. Heard a remodel had been done. It was done sparing no expense. Absolutely beautifully. Very attentive staff. The tasting was outstanding. Highly recommend taking this opportunity to enjoy exceptional wines in a gorgeous Mediterranean-styled setting.

So glad this vineyard was a stop on our Napa Wine Train tour! Our on-premises tour guide was delightful, & his knowledge was especially appreciated by the wine-rookies in our group. Go here!

The location of the winery and grounds are very pretty. Th tasting room is all in dark woods and the staff are very friendly and knowledgable. Met another couple while there and discussed visits to other wineries and these wines as well. Of course bought a few bottles for home. Would definitely go back here on another trip to Napa.

Gorgeous winery with friendly staff and fabulous wines. Picnic on the grounds and enjoy their wonderful wines. We were also invited to pick some incredible white figs from their tree which were an added treat.

LOVED the location. So beautiful, made me wish we could just move in and live there. Tour very well done. We especially like the guide explaining after he had us stand in the sun and then move into the shade, that those who preferred the sun, shared that preference with Cabernet grapes; and those of us who preferred the shade,...
