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...More

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...More

Great stop. Small and intimate setting, we took an unescorted (by people ) walk through the vineyards. They have a friendly GSP who walks with you and follows you back. Wine was very good. Met the owner. Overall a great and welcoming experience.

Chardonnay reserve, Seduction (bordeaux blend), Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon are amongst my favorites. Definitely join the wine club. You'll...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.
