Jarvis Estate is a family owned winery dedicated to crafting a limited quantity of preeminent wines from our sustainably farmed, estate vineyards in the rugged hillside, four miles east of downtown Napa Valley. The Jarvis Estate winemaking facility is entirely contained within 45,000 square feet of cave tunneled into the scenic Vaca Mountains,and is not only a visual masterpiece, but a technical masterpiece as well. Wines are produced only from estate grown grapes and are cave-aged to perfection prior to release. Varietals include: Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Verdot, Tempranillo and a two proprietary Bordeaux blends.

We've been here several times and we are never disappointed! It's a very unique winery, all inside a mountain, with a wonderful tasting and incredible wines. It's a must in Napa, but reservations are required in advance.

I visited with a member so going on tour was planned in advance. The tour of the cave was informative and the wine tasting with an organized group was fun and intimate. Highly recommend it if you have other business in the area.

We had a wonderful visit at Jarvis. Once you walk through those doors be prepared to be amazed and surprised. I don't want to ruin it for anyone who has not gone, so I will just say that it was a truly unique experience that my husband and I enjoyed greatly. The wines you will sample are exquisite. Am a...

This is one of the most unique experiences you can have in the Bay Area (and Napa of course) - the tour allows you to visit a premium family vineyard in the hills close to Napa, producing excellent wines (mostly red, with few whites). The production facility is inside a massive cave, which you'll be visiting on your tour -... More

This was so much more than your typical wine tasting event. Make your reservations in advance, because each group is very small and you don't want to miss this.You get a tour of the cave (winery) which is absolutely fun and amazing It's not just a hole in the mountain (they even have a ballroom in there). You're then seated... More

Jarvis is a place to go to for a completely different experience than the usual wine tasting in the valley. The winery is in a cave, the tour is personal and terrific, the wines are outstanding and pricey, and whole event is most memorable. Of course the cost is memorable as well. Be prepared to pay top dollar should there... More

Absolutely amazing. We went to three total wineries and this was by far the best one. The facility was incredible and the tour was incredibly insightful and fascinating. And of course the wine was amazing!
