Description: Prager Winery & Port Works produces premium ports, fortified wines, and...
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.

We fell upon this little winery quite by accident as it was next door to a winery we had just visited. We decided to do the quick turn and check it out. What a hidden find! The tasting room and staff are very mellow and laid back. The place was empty when we arrived; by the time we had listened... More

We went to Prager based on a recommendation of someone (in the business) that we sat next to at lunch in town. I knew little about Port, but was game to try some of these Napa Ports. Ended up bringing back some bottles of the excellent white port. The folks at Prager hung out and chatted wine with us well... More

Went here because a friend of mine is really into port and had to go here. But even for a non port lover this was a really neat place with a lot of character. The tasting room is unlike any other in Napa really unique and down to earth. The white port was a really neat taste enjoyed the visit.

We had a wonderful tasting here. I didn't taste one thing I didn't like, which made the $20 tasting worth it. Loved the great music and hanging out in the kitchen with the brothers and brother in law. Super nice, Down to earth good old boys. I can't wait for my case to arrive so that I can sip it... More

Prager Port is my favorite place to go for port in St. Helena. Their unique small winery tasting room with the signed dollar bills is fun to go to. The staff is friendly; the tasting pours are good; and the port is so wonderful. We did a shared tasting. We have visited often - usually in December - to get... More

Loved our wine tasting round here! Excellent varieties of port and we especially enjoyed the hazelnut finish in the white port. Currency notes from visitors around the world adorned the walls and ceilings. The owners were super nice and fun! For $20, we tasted 6 wines, could share a glass and also take the glass home. Great deal!

We were told to come here by our Platypus tour guide and we told her we loved port. It is a funky little house that has dollar bills hanging all over the "tasting room."

This is not your typical wine tasting experience. The ceiling and walls are covered in dollar bills. There is a window with wine bottles covered with spider webs. I had my doubts about it all until one of the Prager's came out and began telling us about the different ports. The port was the best I had ever had! I... More
