Attraction details
Owner description: Located on 217 acres in the Carneros region of Napa Valley, di Rosa houses the foremost collection of contemporary Bay Area art, with nearly 2,000 works by 800 artists. A wide range of styles, media, and subject matter provide an overview of the creative energy and freedom to experiment that characterize this region of California. The Gatehouse Gallery welcomes drop-in visitors to view di Rosa’s current exhibition, but in order to view the full extent of the collection (including the Main Gallery, Residence, and Sculpture Meadow) a tour is required. These informal, guided tours include time for independent viewing of the artwork. Open Wednesday through Sunday. Advance reservations for tours are highly recommended.

What an incredible find. Please make a reservation and don't miss this. The diRosa family collected California art in their home, which is quite a show piece. There is a car hanging from a tree, a typewriter on fire and lots of peacocks. Hate to ruin the surprise so go have a look for yourselves. Don't miss the cars!

Interesting scupltures and arts in the wine country. Easy access from Hwy 12. Quite a nice place to spend for a couple hours. Best to make reservation as the spots fill up quite quickly, especially during holiday seasons.

The di Rosa is a must for art-lovers. Well-versed docents share info about the artists and the collector as you tour the grounds dotted with sculpture and several buildings housing paintings, installations, art cars, and more. If you are planning to visit in warm weather, be sure to reserve a spot on one of the meadow tours!
