Owner description: 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.

“Very intimate tour of the vineyard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

We had a great tour. Our guide took just my girlfriend and I out to see the vineyard and show us the barrels. We tried four different types of wine as we were walking. There was plenty of time to sit and tell stories about the vineyard and its owners. We were the only ones on the tour so it felt like we were receiving VIP treatment. There is quite the love story with the vineyard's owners. Their chardonnay was my favorite. The tour is only $15 but is free with the purchase of a bottle after the tour is over. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a good, informative and intimate tour.

“Cute, romancey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

The story of the owners and how they came to be in Napa is darling - and the wine is great. Fabulous first stop of the wine-day - small little place to take it all in and ask tons of questions about the vines and the wine process etc.

“Best Cabernet blend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

Tasted their wine in a hotel wine bar & loved it! We had their wine called Seduction and it definitely did! It's a blended cab & it's delicious! Plus, the sommelier was knowledgeable and friendly. Had a great time learning about the process of their winery and tasting their delicious wines!

“Fell in love with this winery-my favorite!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

So, is it possible to fall in love with a winery? Well, if so, I did, and this was IT!! O'Brien Estate is a very romantic, intimate, family owned winery. It is so simple that it is perfect. The wines are all great as well. Our tour guide, "Rich-ARD" was hilarious, ask for him and tell him the Miamians sent you. We also got to meet the owner, Mr.O'Brien himself and he was a very nice guy who told us more about the names behind the wines, which is the love story between he and his wife. Love love love this place and will go back for sure when in Napa again.
