Inglenook, Rutherford
(4.1/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Inglenook was founded in 1879 by Gustave Niebaum, a Finnish sea captain who used his enormous wealth to import the best European grapevines to Napa. Over the next several decades under the guidance of the legendary John Daniel, Inglenook built a reputation as the source of some of the finest wines ever made. By 1975, however, when Francis and Eleanor Coppola first purchased part of the famed property, the Inglenook Estate had long since been broken up and its name sold off. The Coppolas spent the next twenty years reuniting the vineyards and restoring winemaking to the historic Inglenook Chateau. Today, in addition to the Cabernet Sauvignon that dominates the Estate, the Inglenook acreage is also planted with Zinfandel, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, and six acres of white Rhone varietals that produce the estate's flagship white, Blancaneaux. Inglenook is now completely restored to original dimensions and is once again America's great wine estate.

  • A big thanks to Anthony for making our trip to Inglenook a pleasure. Great selection of wines including but not limited to Rubicon. A must visit for any wine enthusiast. 
  • We visited here on our last day in Napa and were greatly disappointed. While the grounds, vineyards and building are amazing, the wines are not. Maybe it was that this was our second stop on our fourt...  more »
  • Another great visit. Love the gated format. Wines we tasted were excellent. David was our wine educator, he was super. The tour and cave tastings are well worth it.

  • This is where you go to avoid the crowds. Neat place. Looks like a building but it's really a front for tunnels built deep into the hillside. No tastings here, just wine by the glass and coffee in a small cafe. Partly museum too with a lot of interesting old stuff on display.
  • If you like great wine and are looking for a great experience do not go here. It is a total Tourist trap. The only decent wine is over $200.00. We are all veteran oenophiles. I promise, you will be disappointed if you are truly serious about wine.
  • Fantastic wine, very friendly staff, best grounds in Napa. Tons of history, must go!
  • Beautiful out door area with a nice fountain. Amazing old building with gallery. Wine was decent but the views are great.
  • My husband and I have been members of this winery for the past 12 years and there are not enough stars to tell you how fabulous this place is! The wine is AMAZING and have had nothing but top notch service from ALL the employees of the winery. I highly suggest you come try the Inglenook Winery, and after you fall in love with this place like we did, consider becoming members. :-)
