Overview

Jarvis Estate is a family owned winery dedicated to crafting a limited quantity of preeminent wines from our sustainably farmed, estate vineyards in the rugged hillside, four miles east of downtown Napa Valley. The Jarvis Estate winemaking facility is entirely contained within 45,000 square feet of cave tunneled into the scenic Vaca Mountains,and is not only a visual masterpiece, but a technical masterpiece as well. Wines are produced only from estate grown grapes and are cave-aged to perfection prior to release. Varietals include: Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Verdot, Tempranillo and a two proprietary Bordeaux blends.

Jarvis is beautiful and unique. Cora our guide was awesome! She was knowledgeable and you can tell she loves her job. Tour and wine were pricey, but it was an enjoyable experience

This is a very pricey tour. I think the wine was OK. Now to put my life in perspective because not many reviewers do that. Could I afford the wine and drink on special occasions? Yes. Was it worth the price? I do not think...More

This was by far the best experience we had while in Napa. Rob did an amazing job and was so entertaining. The tour was really interesting and the caves made for some great photos. Definitely worth the trip!
