We regretfully are not permitted to have anyone under 21 years of age nor allow any pets on the premises. Our award winning wines come from our 40 acres in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. From grape growing to bottling, the entire winemaking process is managed at the estate. The vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc. Our wines are sought after by collectors and have received many awards, including a recent 98 point score for our 2013 Unrestrained Reserve Bordeaux Blend.

“Awesome relaxing vineyard expierience!”
Reviewed June 10, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I were recommended to visit the O'Brien Winery and we were not disappointed! It was actually our favorite napa valley winery we have ever been to. We were welcomed by Meg (who was awesome) and poured us some of the best wine we have ever tasted. Not long after sitting in the shade next to the vineyard we were greeted by the owner Bart, who was very nice and welcoming. The whole time we felt like we were part of the family, enjoying a leisurely day in the backyard.
I will definitely recommend this winery to everyone who will be visiting Napa!

“A memorable experience”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

On a recent trip to Napa my husband and I decided to make a reservation at O'Brien winery. We had heard about the winery from a friend and how unique of an experience it was. Upon arrival we were greeted by Meg who proceeded to pour us 2 refreshing glasses of sauvignon blanc and lead us out into the vineyard to enjoy some shade at a picnic table set right underneath an avocado tree. We chatted with her about the 33 acres of vines and enjoyed 2 more wines before going inside to finish our tasting. All in all I think we tried almost a dozen wines. Meg gave us interesting information on every one and joined in on our discussions of what we smelled and tasted in each wine. She gave us her undivided attention the entire time and was (other than the wine of course) the reason why we had such a good time at O'Brien. I would definitely recommend checking this place out. And ask for Meg!

“Old Napa”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

We were made to feel at home as soon as we arrived. The owner even came over to say hello. The wines are excellent and the "Unrestricted" was my wife's favorite of the entire Napa trip. Meg and Steve were friendly and knowledgeable and the tasting never felt rushed. The setting is amazing sitting in the vineyard while sipping wonderful wines. This is what Napa used to be, and still is at O'Brien.
