Charles Krug Winery

Now in its third century, Charles Krug Winery is the quintessential example of a multigenerational winery that fuses tradition and innovation to craft wines of high acclaim. It is the oldest winery in the Napa Valley and has been owned and operated by the Peter Mondavi, Sr. family for four generations, founded in 1861. 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. Designed by renowned architect Howard Backen, the renovation honors the winery’s noble which 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 tour and tasting which will give a vantage of the grounds and mezzanine of the winery. Guests receive a full view into the Family Reserve Barrel Room, a working cellar where some of the finest wines are crafted. In summer 2017, the winery introduces a salumeria and outdoor pizza kitchen offering wood-fired pizzas on the lawn and other Italian specialties to savor while relaxing in the Redwood Cellar or outdoor picnic area.

While every day at the winery is enchanting, the family also hosts many magnificent events including Tastings on the Lawn and farm-to-table dinners. In fact, Charles Krug is one of the rare Napa Valley wineries permitted to host weddings. Romantic, beautiful, and historic, Charles Krug Winery upholds its legacy with a commitment to advancement, family, and a love of the Napa Valley that is always apparent in its delightfully balanced wines.
