We had a fantastic time with Jason Craig on our personalized visit. He was a blast to sit with and to learn the history of this winery. Small winery and the personalized tasting was amazing. We had never been to Napa and in my mind, this is what I envisioned a winery would be like! Even met Barb O'Brien, one of the owners. This is a must see!! And no, I am not related...but wish I was!!!

We visited O'Brien Estate Winery, which is our favorite winery in Napa Valley. It was our first time visiting in September and it was awesome to see the grapes on the vines, which were soon to be harvested. For tasting, we sat in the backyard of the O'Brien's private residence. Our host Jason was incredible. Jason has great knowledge of wine including everything about this beautiful estate and the luscious wine produced on site. Their Chardonnay & Cabernet were our favorites. It was relaxing staring at the great view while tasting their 2015 wine selection. Pretty Amazing. An added surprise was meeting and talking to owner Bart O'Brien who was very welcoming. We highly recommend O'Brien Estate Winery.

We LOVED our trip to the O’Brien Winery. Reservations must be made ahead of time, since it’s a winery and a private residence. The grounds were beautiful. The tasting consisted of 5 wines, while we relaxed outside at the table. Our host guided us through the wines and sat with us. It was a wonderful experience, unlike other busier wineries. After the tastings, we walked around the vineyards, enjoying the beautiful views and grapes.

I was looking around Napa for a very unique, not touristy, winery to propose to my girlfriend. I decided to book a lunchtime tasting at O'Brien Estate Winery. Not only are the tastings extremely intimate, but the staff is the best! The 1.5 hour tasting was perfect, with Julio as our host, included a cheese plate and extensive information about the wines, the vineyard, and its history. The wines are some of the best I have tasted and the overall setting is just truly relaxing and picturesque. The best part is that they do not accept walk-ins so you need to make a reservation in advance but you will NOT be disappointed. It was a perfect day and would recommend anybody and everybody to visit!

Our recent trip to the wine country in Napa Valley concluded with our favorite wine tasting adventure at the O'Brien Winery hosted by Jason. It was a very relaxing, interesting, informative and fun experience with Jason. The wine was outstanding, but just sitting with him and discussing the wines and the history combined with his great sense of humor and pleasant nature was truly wonderful. Even got a guided tour through the vineyards from Heidi, the resident German Shorthaired Pointer, who was a sweetie. We would highly recommend that the O'Brien Winery be a "must stop" for all wine country travelers in the Napa area.
