We are by appointment only. Please go to our website to inquire about our experiences. We do not take phone reservations. The cost is $40.00 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.

Nice and Easy

We enjoyed starting our day with Jason at O'Brien. Our innkeeper suggested we visit and taste their red blends. So glad we did as we are now Wine Club members! Cheers!

Wonderful experience from start to finish. Beautiful setting, amazing wine, and Jason was great! He was extremely knowledgeable and personable. You could also tell he was very passionate about what he was telling us! Would go back in a heartbeat! - Iantha, Randi & Hayley

In February, my sister and I planned a Girls Birthday Trip to Celebrate my daughter and my daughter-in-law’s Special Birthdays. When choosing the vineyard's we wanted to visit, O'Brien's was #1 on my list. I have LOVED O'Brien's "Seduction" since my first sip. Knowing how much I Loved Seduction and wanting to help make my daughter’s Birthday Special, my friend... More

What started as a 90 minute tour turned into a 3 hour visit, and we loved every second of it. The tasting, while pricier than those in Yountville, was far far better than anything else we did in Napa. The tour is a private experience - they don't combine parties into one tour. While Yountville's tastings felt very business-y (first... More

We visited O'Brien in January 2009. This was our first trip back and it was an equally enjoyable tasting. You won't get WOW'd by a fancy tasting room or beautiful amenities center. The story has been consistent -- it's about what's in the bottle and that thankfullly has not diminished. We were with friends new to the wine and loved... More

We just returned from our second trip to Napa Valley in less than a year. I researched the vineyards and wineries in the area and came across O'Brien Estate. The reviews were so good that I just knew we had to try it out. Boy was it ever a treat! Even with it being the off season, Jason gave us... More

Thanks to other great reviews of tasting at O'Brien Estate Winery, we spent a delightful afternoon at the winery. It was beautiful, relaxing, personal, and informative. The wine is excellent, especially the merlot and related blends. We sat at a picnic table, sun warm on our backs, as Julio chatted with us and offered tastes of wine. The dog, Heidi,... More

This vineyard was by far the best tasting and tour we took during our trip. A personal experience hosted by Jason and the wonderful boutique vineyard Obrien's is. We had the same great experience mentioned by others. This was great wine, great views and a beautiful day.

We were in Napa celebrating my wife's bday and our anniversary. Jason was a great guide and provided an excellent experience for us. The estate itself is serene and picturesque and the wines superb. Jason guided us through the tastings in a friendly and engaging manner. His experience in the industry was evident throughout the tasting. We were fortunate to... More

This trip was a few years ago. We were alone on our tour, which was not really a tour but brisk walk through the building only. They worked out very quickly that because we were from europe their wine club would be prohibitively expensive, and seemed to lose interest perhaps because of that. Disappointed after such good reviews on here.
