Attraction details
Owner description: Turnbull produces exceptional quality Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, dirt to bottle, from our 100% estate grown vineyards in Oakville and the Napa Valley. We are known for our small production bottlings, most only available exclusively at the winery. We are a hidden gem, an authentic and approachable winery experience where you can taste our honest and true wines at their source. We offer private tastings by prior appointment, and gallery tastings open to the public seven days a week. We believe in the opportunity to pause, explore, and discover something new every day, and for us, wine should be no exception. Other highlights: Pairing Garden - Planted with edible produce and flowers that offer perfect pairings with our wines, this is also a great spot to relax with friends in front of the fire and taste wines. Photography Gallery - Turnbull has one of the largest private black and white photography collections, and twice yearly we curate a show in our Gallery Tasting Room, featuring a plethora of famous artists, including such notables as Berenice Abbott, Ansel Adams, Jock Sturges, Dorothea Lange, Herb Ritts and more. History Established in 1979 at the original estate site where the winery is today, Turnbull has been rooted in the culture and history of the Napa Valley for more than 35 years. We are a small, family-owned, multi-generation business building on a legacy.

“Small Winery with great grounds”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

we enjoy the old bull red and I have only ever found it at the winery. The grounds have a self guided art tour/display. When I went they were having an open house with ribs. The ribs paired so well with the wine that we asked to speak to the chef. They gave us the recipe, no problem. When I was last there, Turnbull was displaying a local photographer. The tasting room is small, the grounds are enjoyable (think secret garden), and the wine is good.

“18th Century Bird Prints are amazing”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

Turnbull Wine Cellars currently has an exhibit of 18th century bird prints (hand colored etchings and lithographs)...many by John James Audubon. They are beautifully framed and displayed. If this was at the Legion of Honor in SF there would be a fee and lines. A temporary exhibit well worth the visit.
