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 a place to go to for a completely different experience than the usual wine tasting in the valley. The winery is in a cave, the tour is personal and terrific, the wines are outstanding and pricey, and whole event is most memorable. Of course the cost is memorable as well. Be prepared to pay top dollar should there... More

Absolutely amazing. We went to three total wineries and this was by far the best one. The facility was incredible and the tour was incredibly insightful and fascinating. And of course the wine was amazing!

From the moment you enter Jarvis, you know you are about to have a completely different winery experience. Our group of 10 thoroughly enjoyed this tour and tasting experience. The wine was superb, the tour entertaining and the Jarvis employees quirky and fun. The facility is certainly one-of-a-kind and beautiful. I would certainly recommend a visit here.

This was my favorite estate tour from my week long visit to Napa. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a hilarious sarcastic wit. The behind-the-scenes cave experience included viewing everything from private gemstone collection and event hall to the quality laboratory and bottle wax dipping process. Reserve ahead! The range of wine is broad and also very tasty! The... More

The winey is big, nice and interesting as located in the cave. The owners organised and located the whole production under ground. The testing was very professional and the wine was very good. You have to pay for the tour but is worth it! unforgettable experience!

We visited Jarvis for a tour and tasting. The property was extraordinary! The tour of the cave and wine making process was amazing. Our tour guide, Tom, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The wines were exquisite!

Few people will opt for this particular tour and tasting because of it's high price (both the tour and the wines). You also need to make reservations--well in advance, I suspect. But for people who want a unique tour and tasting, this is it! The tour is entirely underground, as the owners hollowed out a mountain so all production is... More

The cave tasting here was awesome! Our server was funny and made the 1.5 hours go by rather quickly. The private tasting area was so unique and interesting and all the wines were so good. The tour and wine are on the expensive side so bring your wallet. Definitely worth the splurging!

We wine taste in Napa quite often and had only read about Jarvis before our visit. Now it's my favorite. The history and experience of visiting this cave is very unique. Once you arrive at the tasting room, the real fun begins. The tastings are paired with cheese and crackers which compliments this high end wine. Loved all the wines,... More
