Overview
More
The Inglenook legacy began in 1879 when Gustave Niebaum, a Finnish sea captain, wine connoisseur and entrepreneur, came to Rutherford to build a wine estate that would rival Europe's finest. When Niebaum's grandnephew, John Daniel, Jr. inherited the chateau and vineyards in the 1930s, Inglenook had already earned international acclaim. Francis and Eleanor Coppola purchased the property in 1975 and have spent forty years reuniting the original vineyards, returning winemaking operations to the chateau, and restoring Inglenook's illustrious heritage with the help of renowned wine consultant Stephane Derenoncourt and Managing Director and Winemaker Philippe Bascaules. In honor of this estate and its historical significance, we have restored the name, Inglenook.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stop at Inglenook. The Chateau and the grounds are beautiful. This is a historic winery rich in tradition. We enjoyed strolling the museum, as well. We made reservations in advance for this venue. The wine tasting experience was unhurried and personal....More

Strolled in, had a winetasting, espresso, some pastries, toured the beautiful premises and shopped in their antiques section. This is a beautiful movie-inspired (as you can imagine given FF Coppola is its owner...) Italian/French castle in Napa. His wines are outstanding. Worth going on an...More

Great old vinyard restored by Francis Copula. The back story is fantistic, wine is pretty good as well.

What a contrast to other pricey, sterile wineries in the valley. Inglenook offers beautiful grounds, an iconic chateau style building and very well informed tastings. We spent 5 hours at this vineyard taking in the building, the wine , the coffee and the gardens. Tip-...More

We selected the Heritage tasting for $45 per person and enjoyed it with 6 family members. However, the winery has several other tastings available at different prices. I would recommend looking at the options on the website... More

I believe the Heritage tour is 18 + simply because it's in the tasting room and wines are served. I noted the the Inglenook Experience tour states ages 12 +. Have a great time!!!
