Miner Family Vineyards is a dynamic family owned winery tucked into the eastern hills of the Oakville appellation, squarely within the heart of Napa Valley. Founded in 1998 by Dave & Emily Miner along with his folks Ed & Norma, Miner is defined first and foremost by a sensational portfolio of wines, wines consistently characterized by and committed to individualistic style and uncommon quality. In only a few short years, Miner has identified, sought and secured a number of California's finest vineyard sites to produce and showcase a wide array of varietals. Each wine is crafted in a style to encapsulate the distinctive elements and the indelible fingerprints of their respective vineyards. This combination of excellent vineyard sites along with passionate and thoughtful winemaking injects the necessary components for creating profoundly joyful wines.

Not For Us

Nice terrace for their tasting and very hospitable staff. They have a huge selection of wines that they sell, but they are not our favorite.

What an awesome, hidden gem my group and I found at Miner Family Vineyards. Some Napa wineries can be so stuffy but the second www walked into Miner we felt so comfortable and welcome. Fun vibe, cool music and amazing and helpful staff...especially Pete H. His passion and knowledge for what he does is truly remarkable and made our group... More

It was a find for us but really shouldn't have been :-). Their flagship Oracle has been around for a while but we did not realize how many mother varietals were available. Nick was an awesome host and we did the Somm tasting which was so worth it if you like your wines aged (including a gorgeous 2008 wild yeast... More

Our party of 6 had reserved a wine tasting & cave tour through a family friend. What an excellent experience . We were greeted by Ivy & Jenn for a wine tasting on the second floor patio over looking the Oakville District of the Napa Valley. Jenn has a super friendly personality and has exceptional customer service skills. We toured... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this wine visit as we enjoyed a part of our tasting on the patio that overlooks the vineyards. The patio has comfortable couches to relax and enjoy the view and it was a beautiful, breezy day when we arrived in the mid-afternoon. Ivy was our server and she did a great job. While explaining the... More

We actually visited Miners Winery a year ago but, after discussing it recently with some friends, realised that I never added a TA comment. So here it is! Miner's was the first stop on our full day wine tour and the others winery's we visited could not compete with what Miner's had on offer. A lot of that was to... More

We have been the Miner Family numerous times. It was rather hot outside but the sails kept the outside seating areas fairly cool. We brought another couple with us to our other favorites and ended the day at Miner Family. We all enjoyed the Chardonnay which has somewhat improved over the years. We are now club members. Do plan on... More

We took a private cave tour with Ivy. We were so impressed with the wines. The amount poured. The beautiful stemware used and the cave experience altogether made this winery really stand out to us. Absolutely beautiful inside as well.

I’ve visited many Napa Valley wineries over the years (and even overnighted at the now-defunct Silver Rose), so I have a pretty good grasp of the local standards for wines, tasting rooms, tours and such. Miner Family Winery is very good to excellent on all counts, and I was especially impressed with our wine educator/guide Brian Bock during our tour.... More

This is a high quality wine that is available. We also enjoy this wine. Syrah Stagecoah Vi eyard, Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 2012, and Oracle NapaValley 2011 are all terrific wines.
