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.

This trip was a few years ago. We were alone on our tour, which was not really a tour but brisk walk through the building only. They worked out very quickly that because we were from europe their wine club would be prohibitively expensive, and seemed to lose interest perhaps because of that. Disappointed after such good reviews on here.

To put it in simple terms- wine is fantastic, staff is phenomenal and the spot is crazy beautiful. By appointment only, so the privacy is there and the wines are allocated through their club so you're not going to find it outside the winery.

I've visited a LOT of Napa Valley wineries over the years and enjoyed many of the the tours and tastings. A main feature of many tours is going through the winery itself and learning about the processing steps as you tour the facilities and get to see the actual equipment. I always enjoyed that part of the tour, which is... More

O'Brien is a peaceful and relaxing experience. Because their tastings are by reservation only, there are likely to be only a handful of people there when you visit, and the setting is inviting and comfortable. The tasting was wonderful for several reasons: it was outdoors, the wines were great, cheeses and chocolate were paired with the wines, and Jason, our... More

We had a fantastic time at O'Brien. The tasting experience is a fantastic, relaxed tasting set outside in several different seating areas in the winery. Julio was our host and was full of knowledge about all the wines. It was probably the best value of all the wineries we visited on this trip. Can't wait to come back again.

Made this tasting the first stop of the day. What a great experience, wonderful wines in a peaceful and relaxing environment. Our tasting guide, Jason, was a very knowledgeable and really funny. I would recommend this tour to anyone who loves wine and the Napa lifestyle.

This was one of my favorite tastings in Napa. The property is beautiful and they make the tastings very special. You sit in chairs made from wine barrels while overlooking the vineyard. The wine was very good and the wine bottles are beautiful. Each one telling a chapter in a love story. Very unique and a lovely place to hang... More

Our experience here was so good! The wines tasted excellent, explanations and stories behind it interesting. View is great, while tasting walk through the vineyard, beautiful (especially around 3pm in fall!).

This place... this place...WOW! My girlfriend and I tasted here for her birthday last weekend and just wow. The only thing that might surpass the quality of the wine is the quality of the people at the winery. Julio is worth the trip alone... what a champ! This place is perfect if you're looking for somewhere with a great tasting... More

We travel to the Napa Valley at least six times per year, so I'm always looking for new wineries to explore. I asked around about O'Brien and not many folks in the Valley seemed to know a lot about the place, only that they have a "gimmick" of printing love poems on their bottles. This made me a little nervous... More
