Owner description: One of Napa’s classic wine estates, Trefethen is still a hidden gem. Easy to find, but only if you’re looking. Our entry is on Oak Knoll Avenue, tucked away from the crowds of Highway 29. The driveway John Trefethen used to land his plane on runs through the middle of our vineyard, over the ground we have tended since 1968. On August 24, 2014, a 6.0 earthquake rocked Napa Valley and Trefethen to the core and left our cherished historic winery leaning 4 feet to the west. We have spent 2½ years working on a full restoration, including a modern seismic retrofit. Originally constructed in 1886, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the building is ready to stand sentinel over Napa Valley once again. Please come visit soon! Reservations are not required but are suggested Reservations are required for all groups of 6 or more. At this time we are unable to accommodate anyone under the age of 21, including infants and children.

The history of Trefethen and their role in developing Napa as a wine mecca since the 70s something that few are aware of. The historic winery is home to one of the old wineries in Napa an they consisitenly produce some of the best Cabernet in the Oak Knoll District.

Oldest standing winery in the valley. Great wines, beautiful tasting room and Shannon is one of the best pourers in the Valley. Reservations are helpful if you have more than 4...great stop to end the day...leather chairs in the tasting room and 5 minutes from Don Giovanni, 10 minutes from Yountville,,,
