My sisters, mom and I visited O'Brien last week as part of a three vineyard private wine tour. It was simply amazing. The property is beautiful as were all the wines we tasted. We learned a lot and enjoyed every minute. Highly recommended.

We visited O'Brien Estate Winery, which is our favorite winery in Napa Valley. It was our first time visiting in September and it was awesome to see the grapes on the vines, which were soon to be harvested. For tasting, we sat in the backyard...More

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

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.
