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.

  • We were very impressed by the Concierge Dominique at the visitor center. She was very courteous and helped us to join a tour, although we did not have prior reservations. The tour was so rewarding and...  read more »
  • Wonderful tasting here. The 2013 Rubicon is amazing (100% Cabernet, which is rare). It's only surpassed by the 2007 Rubicon, which was a treat for the palate. Favorite wine so far! Sebastian, from Arg...  read more »
  • Had a tour with a 2nd level Somm and tasted some exquisite wines. The history of Inglenook is fascinating, our Somm was very engaging and knew the history flawlessly. 
  • 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.
  • 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. :-)
  • Great wine. Friendly staff. Lively ch√Ęteau and grounds.
  • One of the most friendly staff in all the wineries even been to. Very knowledgable and kind; Great chateau , nice view and history. Really enjoyed here, highly recommended to first time Napa visitors. Big rubicon fan
  • Beautiful out door area with a nice fountain. Amazing old building with gallery. Wine was decent but the views are great.
