  • 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 out...  more »
  • 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...  more »
  • In Napa Valley, you find several types of tour and flights, but that, without a doubt, was our favorite, the tour/flight is booked in advance and is unique. I alone with my husband. It was wonderful. Julio, one of the eight fixed staff, wine served us a cheese Board and 5 wines and, between a bowl and another in explaining about the winery (history, production and proposal) and about the wines ... in addition to let us a little alone time enjoying that paradisiacal place! The tasting is done behind the House of the owners of the wine, in the middle of the field. Unforgettable. The price is pretty steep ($ 110) and almost made me quit, but it was very worthwhile. Was the best experience in Napa Valley, including all the wineries and wonderful restaurants. Recommend without thinking twice.

  • Wonderful winery! We absolutely loved O'Brien Estate and especially their wines. Jason, was our wine ambassador and he was awesome-Great customer service and knowledgeable. Make sure you book a time for tasting and make sure they send a confirmation number. We highly recommend and cant wait to go back!
  • Jason helped us with our tasting and we couldn't be happier with the experience! He was extremely knowledgable and passionate about what he does. Our tasting was on a porch looking out on the vineyard and, though it was a bit foggy, it was stunningly beautiful. We all enjoyed the wine, as well, and there was a good variety to taste.
  • 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.
  • 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).
