Overview
More
Cultivated with passion and a singular vision, Opus One produces one ultra-premium Bordeaux blend a year. A collaboration between Robert Mondavi and Baron Philippe de Rothschild, Opus One arose out of passion. And beginning with the first harvest in 1979, every vintage of Opus One has expressed the vision and passionate spirit of its founders. Our goal is to create a wine of ultimate quality that reflects the traditions and innovations of both founders. Visiting the winery is by appointment only.

I can only comment on the experience as a walk-in patron. We had not originally planned to go to Opus One, but someone local recommended we pass by as "walk-ins" and try a glass of wine. I did not realize this was an option and...More

Our only disappointment about starting our day at Opus Winery was nothing else compared! Beautiful facility, attentive & informative staff, and the most delicious wine! Can’t wait to go back. 🍷

We tasted and toured the iconic Opus One winery on 10 January. It is state of the art facility which makes world class Bordeaux. And then, of course, there's the wine. A great Bordeaux can be cellared for years. We tasted the current vintage, 2014,...More

Wines are great but expensive as everyone would expect! We didn’t do the tour since we had four people and not everyone drinks (I think is about $120 per person) so we just had the tasting instead. We tried the 2012 and 2014 plus the...More
