Overview
More
We are by appointment only. Please go to our website to inquire about our experiences. We do not take phone reservations. The cost is $55.00 per person. 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.

This vineyard and the wines have a great story. We had a delightful afternoon at this small family winery at a private tasting.

Forget the crowds and hype of the big name wineries. O'Brien is filled with so much charm and romance and remarkable wines. The owners came and sat with us and shared their story...it was incredible. It was relaxing, educational and a ton of fun. I...More

We loved this winery and became members because the wine was that good (and reasonably priced for its high quality). They bring a relaxed atmosphere to their tasting as you lounge outside in their gorgeous vineyard. We're so glad it was one of the wineries...More

Most of the smaller wineries require reservations, I would call or email the ones you want to go to, so you aren't turned away. OBrien and Venge require reservations, groups of four or less may be able to just walk in for a... More

Best to reserve tastings well in advance at O'Brien's, small and intimate, as opposed to Castelo. Do it on line or by phone in advance. O'Brien's is very close to Yountville, but you will need to drive.
