Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
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.

“Love the Reds”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Wine tasting only -- we didn't do a tour. All the Reds were excellant. I only wish they were less expensive so I could buy more. One of our favorite wine tastings in Napa.

“Twilight with Trefethen”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Highly recommend Twilight at Trefethen. It's a delightful, relaxing experience at the vineyard where you better understand the fundamentals of wine and have one of the best environments for a tasting.

“Very Informative Tour”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Prepare to spend a few hours here if you take the tour. It's totally worth it, very informative. Trefethen was my favorite tasting as well. Bought into the club and can't wait for my first shipment!
