Overview
More
The Inglenook legacy began in 1879 when Gustave Niebaum, a Finnish sea captain, wine connoisseur and entrepreneur, came to Rutherford to build a wine estate that would rival Europe's finest. When Niebaum's grandnephew, John Daniel, Jr. inherited the chateau and vineyards in the 1930s, Inglenook had already earned international acclaim. Francis and Eleanor Coppola purchased the property in 1975 and have spent forty years reuniting the original vineyards, returning winemaking operations to the chateau, and restoring Inglenook's illustrious heritage with the help of renowned wine consultant Stephane Derenoncourt and Managing Director and Winemaker Philippe Bascaules. In honor of this estate and its historical significance, we have restored the name, Inglenook.

What a contrast to other pricey, sterile wineries in the valley. Inglenook offers beautiful grounds, an iconic chateau style building and very well informed tastings. We spent 5 hours at this vineyard taking in the building, the wine , the coffee and the gardens. Tip-...More

We selected the Heritage tasting for $45 per person and enjoyed it with 6 family members. However, the winery has several other tastings available at different prices. I would recommend looking at the options on the website... More

I believe the Heritage tour is 18 + simply because it's in the tasting room and wines are served. I noted the the Inglenook Experience tour states ages 12 +. Have a great time!!!
