Trefethen Family Vineyards, Napa

4.4
#14 of 63 in Wineries in Napa
In 1968, the Trefethen family purchased seven farms surrounding a magnificent, but run-down, 19th-century winery in southern Napa Valley and created Trefethen Family Vineyards. At the time, there were fewer than 30 working wineries in the Napa Valley. True to the family’s original vision of creating a classic wine estate, they have never purchased outside grapes. Instead, they take extraordinary care of their two sustainably farmed estate vineyards in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Today, after 40 years, the Trefethen family’s third generation, Loren and Hailey, assist their parents in continuing the family tradition of passion for the land, its people and the art of crafting exceptional Napa Valley wines.

  • Excellent wines, service, ambience in a historic ghost winery. What more could you want? Reservations are recommended and required on weekends.
  • Former wine club member: I loved this place but the tasting experience has changed for the bad. Got there 30 mins early and had to wait the entire 30 mins while parties showing up 10-15 mins late were lead directly upstairs. So show up late not early. Love that the building is back but miss the “walk up” bar tasting.
  • Good wine, good family, nice staff. Great satisfaction
  • We were already Trefethen wine club members but were even more impressed after our visit. Winery repairs were completed before our visit so we experienced the entire winery and took a tour through the vineyard and wine making facilities as well. Staff was friendly and the property is beautiful. In the tasting room we discovered that we had somehow missed how good their Malbec is and sent some bottles home. Needless to say, we'll be keeping our wine club membership and visiting again.
  • Great tasting experience. The staff are friendly and very knowledgable about the wines and history of the area, and the wines themselves are pretty good. This tasting room is also far less busy than other ones in the area, so if you're looking for something more quiet and relaxed, definitely give this a shot.
