Attraction details
Owner description: One of Napa's classic wine estates, Trefethen is 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. John Trefethen used to land his plane on the driveway during runs through the middle of our vineyard, over the ground we have tended for over 40 years. Located at the grand entrance to Napa Valley, we are one of Napa's classic family wine estates. Stunning valley and vineyards vistas surround guests as they sample distinctive hand crafted estate wines. (Reservations required). We look forward to welcoming you.

“Love This Winery!”

We went there to check out the wines and boy were we impressed. We ended up buying about 6 bottles! If you're doing wine tasting in Napa, please check out this winery. Not far from the freeway.

“Napa Par Excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

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.
