O'Brien Estate

O 1200 Orchard Avenue
Napa  CA 94558
map | add to trip

Monday through Sunday 10:00 - 3:30 by appointment.

O'Brien Estate is a self-contained winery estate with 33 acres of vineyards, a fully bonded winery, and is also the home of Bart and Barb O'Brien since the turn of the century. Only grapes from our single estate vineyard are made into O'Brien Estate wines.

The grapes are hand-harvested, crushed and fermented in small batches in the winery adjacent to the vineyard and our home, then aged exclusively in French oak barrels primarily from Darnajou and Taransaud.

Our mission is to both produce the finest wines possible from our own piece of heaven and to create a place for our guests to have the rare experience of visiting a self-contained estate with vineyards, winery, and owner’s home. Walk in our vineyards, touch our barrels and bottling line, sit in our backyard, and share our passion for the bottled poetry of wine. Is this heaven? For us it is, and we hope it is for you too.
