The Charles Krug Winery was established as the first winery in the Napa Valley 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.
