Now offering wood-fired Pizza on the Lawn, Saturdays & Sundays, 11-4. Enjoy wood-fired, Italian-inspired pizza on the Charles Krug lawn with a delicious glass of Charles Krug wine. The oldest winery in Napa Valley, Charles Krug recently renovated its historic Redwood Cellar, turning it into one of the region's most stunning Tasting Rooms. Named one of the "Top 10 California Tasting Experiences" by Food & Wine and winner of the 2015 Architecture and Landscape Award for Best of Wine Tourism, this is the winery that put Napa on the map. A must-see for anyone interested in the legacy of Napa Valley winemaking. We offer several tasting options daily, including barrel tastings, private tours, and exclusive tastings of our limited release wines. Walk-ins are welcome, or call to make an appointment.

We had a 10:30 reserve tasting. They were overly generous with the pour. The original winery in Napa, it eventually was owned by the Mondavi Family. The sons, Robert and Peter, had a disagreement and Robert went off and became the large well known winery. Peter stayed with the Krug winery and maintained a smaller more european feel. The people...

We ate lunch on picnic grounds-very nice views. We ordered the brick oven personal pizza with a glass of wine. It cost about $25 each person so it was the most expensive little pizza we ever had, but very good. We noticed the Napa Valley Wine train also stopped there.

Wanted to love this place but found the wine lacking. Maybe my palette was fatigued but wanting. The tasting room and grounds were glorious. In that regard I highly recommend.

We visited here on a Sunday afternoon having stopped at Gotts for lunch. We had planned to do their barrel tasting; however, we were not there in time. So, we did their regular wine tasting.

This is a great place if it's super hot outside because it's dark and cool. We did the classic tastings for $20, but the tour looked fun around the grounds and indoors

We stopped in here for a classic wine tasting and it was very pleasant. We like Charles Krug wines to begin with so found no surprises. We split a tasting, which worked out just fine for us. It's very comfortable and the people are very helpful and pleasant.

I was sad they had sold out of Zinfandel Port but had a great time drinking great wine at the winery. Always a stop when I visit Napa

My wife and I enjoyed a tour of Charles Krug Winery as part of the Napa Valley Wine Train.
