Charles Krug Winery, the oldest winery in the Napa Valley, recently renovated its historic Redwood Cellar, turning it into one of the most stunning Tasting Rooms in all of Napa Valley. It's also the only Tasting Room with its own trattoria, Cucina di Rosa.

Originally established by Prussian immigrant Charles Krug in 1861 With over 150 years of history, the winery is a must-see destination for visitors traveling to the Napa Valley. Purchased by Cesare and Rosa Mondavi in 1943, it is the home to America's first family in wine. Our Redwood Cellar and Carriage House are grand buildings dating back to the late 1800s. Our Great Lawn is home to memorable tastings, and is used for weddings and an occassional concert performance.

Charles Krug Winery is excited to announce the opening of Cucina di Rosa, an Italian trattoria housed in the winery's historic Redwood Cellar. Cucina di Rosa offers a variety of rustic panini, antipasti and salads as well as traditional Italian snack items designed to pair beautifully with Charles Krug’s estate wines. The Cucina is open Friday through Sunday, 10:30 am to 4 pm. To reserve a picnic table or for more information, call 707.967.2229 or email cucina@charleskrug.com.

In late 2013, Charles Krug Winery opened its newly transformed and renovated historic Redwood Cellar Tasting Room and Hospitality Center. Originally built in 1872, the stunning space is a Registered National Historic Landmark. Yet, just like the winery, there’s newness about it. Designed by renowned architect Howard Backen, the renovation honors the winery’s noble heritage with historic reclaimed clear heart old growth redwood from the family’s original storage tanks, pine structural beams and stone walls which together lend the handsome, contemporary—yet timeless—space an authentic, natural ambience. 

Guests are always welcome to taste at the tasting bar or the cellar’s open lounge. They’re also invited to reserve a tasting in a spacious private room on the ground floor or mezzanine. Giant arched windows give guests a full view into the Family Reserve Barrel Room, a working cellar where some of the finest wines are crafted. The Tasting Room also has its own trattoria, Cucina di Rosa, offering fresh grilled Panini and other Italian specialties to savor while relaxing in the Redwood Cellar or outdoor picnic area. 

View from Tasting Room:  Mount St Helena to the North, housed in the 1872 historic Redwood Cellar, historic 1881 Carriage House to the South, vineyards

Food Available:  Charles Krug is the only tasting room with its own trattoria, Cucina di Rosa, which offers rustic panini, salads and other Italian-American treats.
