Winery / Vineyard
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.

  • There are so many places to choose from in Napa, but this location has a great atmosphere and beautiful history of wine in the Valley. I have been a member for over 14 years and enjoy events such as lunches or dinners with paired wines, Harvest festivals, Crab and Lobster feeds and more. I love to bring friends and family for tastings or coffee and snacks in courtyard. Great wine, perfect "Rubicon" and service. Love this place!
  • I'm used to be a wine club member for 4 years from Rubicon to Inglenook. Love the place and the service by the staff. Thinking about the people who work there. It was a great memory and experience. The wine was great infact I'm still holding on to some Cask and Rubicon.
  • The facilities are great, the wine was delicious, and the coffee shop was really nice as well. 4 stars as this was the only "pretentious" wine experience we had cross the 20 wineries we visited. Hoping we just had a subpar person walk us through the tasting, as we enjoyed everything else about this place
  • An important stop if you're interested in the history of Napa Valley winemaking. The place is now owned by the Coppolas. The estate is beautiful, and features a small exhibition inside. The wine tasting is very well done. The wines here were not among my favorite in this area, but I still very much enjoyed the visit overall.
  • Very nice tour nice history lesson love the wine!
