Owner description: We pride ourselves on making one varietal that is food-friendly and deliciously drinkable upon release. Our story begins in the early 1970's when Ray Duncan befriended winegrower Justin Meyer. The two formed a partnership and co-founded Silver Oak Cellars in 1972 with the bold vision of producing only Cabernet Sauvignon. Come experience the Silver Oak Cellars Napa Valley winery in Oakville, CA to enjoy exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon wine tasting tours.

“Twomey & Silver Oak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We did the Twomey & Silver Oak experience tasting. The tasting room was noisy; but then our server took us on a tour of the facility which was quite interesting. We got away from the noise & learned a lot about the history of the winery & Napa. The cabs we tasted were fabulous & not overly pricey (for Napa). The pinots from Twomey were disappointing for my palate, but certainly others might enjoy them. Can't say enough about the ambiance of the winery!

“This is a nice wine tasting location, with good wine and free wine glass!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

The wine at Silver Oak is very good. There is a nice, while subdued wine tasting, with free bread sticks to clean your pallet. Then they let you keep your wine glass (the only place that did out of the places we toured). The owners private cellar is beautiful! I would recommend a quick stop here!

“Not one to miss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We visit the Napa Valley each year, usually in late October when the crowds are gone and the weather is cool. Although we visit at least one new winery each year, we always stop at the Silver Oak tasting room and purchase a bottle or two. Napa Valley at its best.

“Thomas made us Silver Oak fans for life!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We have visited Silver Oak three times now. We were lucky enough to get Thomas on our first visit there. He conducted a tour that was so memorable for our small group. Thomas is very informative and warmly tells the story of Silver Oak. He treats every single visitor there with the same respect regardless of age or how much money they look capable of spending. Our first trip there we simply took the tour with two or our friends and another couple. This year, on our wedding trip to Napa, we stopped in to do a tasting and ordered some magnums that we will use to celebrate our wedding anniversaries in the future (Thomas' idea from our first visit). We again love this place so much that we took my husband's parents there for a quick visit so they could see this place we love so much. Unfortunatley, Thomas wasn't there but another nice gentleman conducted our tasting and was so nice to show my in laws the fermentation tanks and give an abbreviated tour/history of Silver Oak. This place is very special too us and I reccomend it to everyone!

“Beautiful Winery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

My husband and I appreciated the nice grounds and huge tasting room. We just are not fans of their wines. Their tasting experience is bit disappointing. It is too crowded and the pourers just keep pouring and do not tell you about their wines. This winery would be fine for a large party bus wine stop.
