We are by appointment only. Please go to our website to inquire about our experiences. We do not take phone reservations. The cost is $55.00 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.

Hands down this is my favorite winery in the Napa valley. We are novice wine connoisseurs and Luis provided an incredible tasting experience. We spent over 2.5 hours talking with him about the vineyard, the wines, and the Napa/Sonoma area in general. He was such a delight to spend the afternoon with. The grounds are breathtaking and there are plenty... More

We pulled up to a residential estate, Uber left and we were told we couldn't stay because they weren't "like other tasting establishments, they are at a residential location." They offered us a nice glass of Chardonnay as we waited for our Uber to turn around and come back.

We couldn't partake because it's by appointment only and they only do 2-3 a day... he was nice enough to give us one taste though. NEXT!

If you are looking for an intimate experience with a first class winery, look no further. I spent a beautiful afternoon with my husband and parents taking in the scenery and sampling amazing wine and cheese. Our host Jason could sell a ketchup popsicle to a woman in white gloves but he doesn't have to as the wine sells itself.... More

After looking up where to wine taste in Napa Valley decided to stop at O'Brien Estate Winery. What a pleasant surprise to see that the reviews were correct. The O'Brien's home is on estate. What a beautiful view from their backyard where we really enjoyed our wine tasting with Julio. Julio was very knowledgeable about the background of the Estate,... More

Don't get me wrong - it was a nice tasting experience, but the tripadvisor reviews made it sound like it was something incredibly special. It is a lovely setting and everyone was friendly. Sitting outside to enjoy the wines was very pleasant, but they weren't really to my taste.

This was my very first wine tasting experience and I couldn't have been any more pleased. Shortly after arriving we were handed wine glasses with a pour of white wine. And these weren't three-sips-and-you're-done pours. They were "Welcome to our home, let's show you around" pours. I will admit that my friend and I were disappointed that they didn't offer... More

We enjoyed all of our tastings in Napa but this was the most intimate and fun tasting we had by far. We sat in the backyard and just had wonderful conversations with Luis while drinking beautiful reds and whites. Could not recommend enough! This is what Napa should be like.

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
