Prager Winery & Port Works produces premium ports, fortified wines, and dessert and table wines using top quality Napa Valley grapes. We are a winery that has been family owned and operated for three generations and deeply involved in all stages of crafting our premium ports and wines. Located in the heart of Napa Valley, we have been aptly described as the perfect prescription for Port lovers since 1979.

Tucked away past a lush garden, the Prager tasting room is like a secret hideaway - rustic and casual - and unlike any tasting room in the Napa Valley. Currency from around the world covers the walls and ceilings. In our intimate tasting room guests can choose from a variety of our delicious offerings. Pick from the Vintage, Tawny and White Ports, or the Petite Sirah and Late Harvest Riesling table wines. To cleanse your palates between tastings, divulge in some of our delectable chocolate truffles and Imogene Prager's sweet and savory walnuts. Browse through our additional offerings from specialty vinegars, custom etched bottles, t-shirts, hats and more. We invite you to step off the beaten path and join us for an exceptional port experience.

This is a must when visiting Napa. The tasting room is amazing - covered in signed banknotes from around the world giving a real "wow" factor. The port is pretty good too! Definitely the highlight in our wine-tasting stops.

The Prager Port works was amazing, great ports and absolutely off the normal path while you are in Napa. Entertaining, great personalities and amazing ports...you really haven't had a good port till you have had a Prager.

In 2006 we discovered Prager Ports…that’s when our love affair with ports began. It was the first time we tasted a White Port – Aria! It was spectacular. We have returned to Prager’s Winery every year since and have purchased the majority of their ports and late harvest Rieslings. Jeff and Kevin are most hospitable and this family gem is... More

Jim Prager is a long time friend and the winery is a family affair. Quaint atmosphere with a lot of history and family type friendship. Visiting with Jim and his Sons is as enjoyable as the Port tastings. They ship.

Prager is just a really fun place to visit. The dollar bill decor is a hoot and their relaxed, friendly approach to their winemaking if refreshing. Their various ports are excellent and you get to keep the really good, robust tasting too. Great place on a rainy ( or any other ) day

Tip, this is one of the only places in the valley you will find a cigar for purchase! If you have any affirmation for port at all, do yourself a favor and mark this spot on your list to stop by. The Blonde Tawny white port is heaven. Pair with the house made pecans and it's even better. The 10... More

This is a distinctive Port House in Northern Napa County that does not disappoint. The Prager's have a nice selection of wine, and although somewhat pricey, you can get great discounts by joining their club and ordering volume.

All you see from Hwy 29 is a small sign and a dusty lane. Hidden between the Sutter Home property and the Harvest Inn is the best port winery in the Napa Valley. Funky tasting room without all the glitz. If you love port or are just wanting to try something different in a wine do not miss this one.... More

A small winery but good wines! They only do ports and two other sweet wines. But the port is pretty good. Not out of this world though. If you want an AMAZING port that will blow your mind: Williamate Winery Oregon. I'm not joking, it's seriously worth checking it out!!! But back to these ports, pretty good but not mind... More
