From planting to bottling, the entire wine-making process occurs on this relatively small plot of land (comprising 40 acres of vineyards, a winery and the owner's home). And by all accounts, the end result is a hit with visitors. Consider a wine tour at O'Brien Estate if you're looking for a relaxed, intimate atmosphere with personalized service. 

Recent visitors raved about the tour guides, who share interesting and educational facts about the winery, but also give plenty of alone time to kick back, relax and savor the wine experience. Expect stunning views of Oak Knoll Appellation, plus a welcome glass of wine upon your arrival.

O'Brien Estate asks that you leave underage family members behind to preserve the tranquil adult atmosphere the estate has cultivated. Most visitors appreciate this statute. Travelers also appreciate O'Brien Estate's proximity; it's a convenient 5-mile drive north of downtown Napa. Tours and tastings are offered daily at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. Together, they last about an hour and half and require a reservation. The experience costs $40 per person. For more information and to make a reservation, check out the winery's website.
