PlumpJack Winery, Oakville

#12 of 13 in Wineries in Oakville
PlumpJack Winery is a boutique winery in Oakville, California specializing in premium Cabernet Sauvignon wines. PlumpJack was the first winery in Napa Valley to use screwcaps as a wine closure on fine wines. The winery is one of several businesses operated by the PlumpJack Group. The name of the company is inspired by "the roguish spirit of Shakespeare's Sir John Falstaff, dubbed Plump Jack by Queen Elizabeth."HistoryThe PlumpJack Group was founded in 1992 by Gavin Newsom, a San Francisco entrepreneur who was elected that city's mayor in 2003, and Gordon Getty, a San Francisco composer and philanthropist, when they opened a wine store called PlumpJack Wines in the Fillmore neighborhood of San Francisco. Over the next five years, the business expanded to include a boutique hotel and three restaurants. PlumpJack Winery was founded in 1997 when the PlumpJack Group acquired a century-old 53acre vineyard in Napa Valley on Oakville Cross Road. The winery facility and tasting room were designed by Leavitt-Weaver, the same design firm that the PlumpJack Group used for the designs of its restaurants and hotels.

  • I'm floored at the string of negative reviews for Plumpjack Winery! I have been a die-hard fan (and my hubby and I have been wine club members) for many years and it's still one of my favorite places ...  more »

  • This is our favorite winery of all time !!! We had the best private hilltop tasting when we were there and ended up joining the wine club. The staff is wonderful and the price point is well worth it !!!
  • Wines were amazing, property was beautiful, customer service wasn't terrible but wasn't over the top either. I would recommend on the fact the wines are delicious!!!
  • Place lost power multiple times during tasting. They wouldn’t open a new bottle of wine on their tasting menu for us. The guy was a douchebag.
  • Friendly staff, tasting fee unreasonable
  • This winery has both beautiful wines and amazing spaces to hang out. Tom will help you enjoy all that Plumpjack has to offer. We highly recommend this as a romantic destination. Make sure to enjoy a glass of wine on the porch swing.

Where to stay in Oakville

Oakville may have fine wineries, but offers very limited lodgings. For the closest urban centers with a choice of accommodations, check out Yountville to the south, and St Helena to the north. Just a little past Yountville, Napa offers a good set of accommodations and is conveniently located for visits to many of the wineries dotted around the surrounding landscape.
