Overview
More
Turnbull produces exceptional quality Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, dirt to bottle, from our 100% estate grown vineyards in Oakville and the Napa Valley. We are known for our small production bottlings, most only available exclusively at the winery. We are a hidden gem, an authentic and approachable winery experience where you can taste our honest and true wines at their source. We offer private tastings by prior appointment, and gallery tastings open to the public seven days a week. We believe in the opportunity to pause, explore, and discover something new every day, and for us, wine should be no exception. Other highlights: Pairing Garden - Planted with edible produce and flowers that offer perfect pairings with our wines, this is also a great spot to relax with friends in front of the fire and taste wines. Photography Gallery - Turnbull has one of the largest private black and white photography collections, and twice yearly we curate a show in our Gallery Tasting Room, featuring a plethora of famous artists, including such notables as Berenice Abbott, Ansel Adams, Jock Sturges, Dorothea Lange, Herb Ritts and more. History Established in 1979 at the original estate site where the winery is today, Turnbull has been rooted in the culture and history of the Napa Valley for more than 35 years. We are a small, family-owned, multi-generation business building on a legacy.

We visited Turnbull for our engagement and it was wonderful. The private estate tasting experience that followed was a superb experience in an intimate setting. The wine is top notch and the staff is great. Can't wait to go back.

Pretty outdoor tasting area with terrific variety of wines. Our host, Kevin, had only been there a short time yet knew everything about the wines. He paced our tasting experience perfectly. Highly recommend.

We really enjoyed this airy, modern farm space. The wines were excellent and the people there were knowledgeable and friendly. Reservations not required, but the tasting space is not huge.

Turnbull was a lovely relaxed tasting atmosphere. We wandered around looking at the photographic display and then enjoyed a tasting outside in comfortable chairs in the beautiful October weather. It was great from start to finish!
