  • I honestly can't say enough about how amazing this place is. Just 10 minutes from downtown napa. The 43 acre vineyard is charming inside and out from the moment you pull up. Jason our sommelier was wonderful by being knowledgeable funny and interesting while walking us through all the wines. Sitting outside in the comfy chairs sipping delicious wine looking out over the vines is the perfect way to spend the day. Book way in advance cause this place fills up fast.
  • We were very disappointed during our visit last week. Interestingly in all the other on line reviews there was no mention of the high tasting fees of $40 per person that are ONLY waived if you join their wine club. If you are not looking for a wine club to join your time and money is much better spent at any of the other great wineries, which include tours and actual facilities not picnic benches for tasting. The brochure upon your arrival says complimentary wine tasting but the small print when making the reservation does note the fee. Please do your homework as we did not read the find print and spent $117 on a mediocre bottle of wine (including the $80.00 tasting fees).
  • Wow, that's about all I can say about O'Brien. The views were amazing, the wines were complex and delicious. Jason did an amazing job of letting the wine speak for itself and tailor the taking to our tastes rather than simply go through the motions.
  • Favorite winery of 7 on our Napa trip, the tasting while walking freely about the property in an intimate setting is unbeatable. To top it off the wines were also fantastic, the Cabernet franc and Merlot reserve were outstanding ( I usually do not care for merlot). I would give it more stars if possible.
  • Unique intimate experience and great wines. Julio was very knowledgeable and passionate, without coming across as cheesy. Would have been fun to stroll a bit if it hadn't been 103 degrees!
