Went to the O'Brien Estate on an August weekend. The tour was simple, short and sweet with 5-6 wine tastings. It tasted very good and bought couple of them. Not much of a rush here, so it very nice and peaceful. They explained and answered all the questions that were put to them. Was a pleasant tour altogether !!

Great wine, but the tour was a little "canned" with little room for questions and conversation. Would skip the tour and just taste.

What a fantastic place! While this place is small and not on many people's radar, it is by far the best winery to visit in Napa. You really get the feeling of family here and this was the only place that took time to tell us the story of the winery and why they love what they do. The O'Brien's were in Ireland when we visited but their staff, particularly Richard, was fantastic and made us feel very welcome. The tour, the stories, the warmth, it was all great and really topped our trip. If you are looking for ultimate class wines that are sought after the world over then this is not your place. There is no pretentiousness here and their wines are very good with some being proprietary blends that some wine snobs would turn their nose from.

I loved it and joined their wine club, bought some wine, and a new opener from them. I highly recommend this hidden gem of a winery!

We took the tour alone on sat and when our adult kids came in on Monday we called them and asked if we could come back with them. They are such a nice family and so welcoming. We visited 15 wineries this week and bought mostly Obrien. The estate is lovely, very relaxing, we actually ended up visiting until 9pm.

You have to have a reservation to visit O'Brien, but we just called about 20 minutes beforehand and they were able to fit us in. We were greeted outside and given tastings as we walked the grounds. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the wine-making process and their property/wines, and we really enjoyed the homey feel of the tour.
