The Inglenook legacy began in 1879, when Gustav Niebaum, a Finnish sea captain, wine connoisseur, and entrepreneur, came to Rutherford to build a wine estate that would rival Europe's finest. When Niebaum's grandnephew, John Daniel Jr. inherited the chateau and vineyards in the 1930's, Inglenook had already earned international acclaim, which was made legendary by the famed 1941 vintage.
Francis and Elenor Coppola purchased the property in 1975 and have spent forty years reuniting the original vineyards, returning winemaking operations to the chateau, and restoring Inglenook's illustrious heritage with the help of renowned wine consultant Stephanie Derenoncourt and Managing Director and Winemaker, Philippe Bascaules. In honor of this estate and its historical significance, we have restored the name Inglenook.
We are proud to share the unique Inglenook Heritage with you, offering daily tours, seated tastings and specialty experiences to accommodate your needs. We recommend advanced reservations for all guest experiences and are happy to accommodate private groups both large and small.
