Attraction details
Owner description: Miner Family Vineyards is a dynamic family owned winery tucked into the eastern hills of the Oakville appellation, squarely within the heart of Napa Valley. Founded in 1998 by Dave & Emily Miner along with his folks Ed & Norma, Miner is defined first and foremost by a sensational portfolio of wines, wines consistently characterized by and committed to individualistic style and uncommon quality. In only a few short years, Miner has identified, sought and secured a number of California's finest vineyard sites to produce and showcase a wide array of varietals. Each wine is crafted in a style to encapsulate the distinctive elements and the indelible fingerprints of their respective vineyards. This combination of excellent vineyard sites along with passionate and thoughtful winemaking injects the necessary components for creating profoundly joyful wines.

“Above the Rest Miner is Best!!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We have visited many of the wineries in the valley and by far Miner Family consistently rates as the best in our minds. The staff make you feel welcome, they are happy to share the wines with you and often you will see Dave Miner in the tasting room. On top of the great staff and friendly service the team is very knowledgeable and they never make you feel bad if you are new to exploring wine. If you are headed to the Napa Valley make sure you stop at this gem.

“Great family run winery”

Had the opportunity to have dinner at the winery and meet David Miner. This is a special place run by a great family and I cannot recommend you visit there strongly enough.

“Interesting story, beautiful site!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Stopped for a wine tasting. Warm & friendly atmosphere.
Wines varied some more interesting than others, all pretty good.
May not repeat, only because there are so many to see.
Worth the stop if you are in the area.

Hip tasting room. Great view from the balcony. Great wines! Great host! Enjoyed a short tour which included a barrel tasting.
Minor is on the short list of "go back" spots!
