Joseph Phelps Vineyards

Welcome to Joseph Phelps Vineyards. We invite you to visit our recently renovated original winery in St. Helena where we offer a variety of wine tasting experiences seven days a week by prior appointment. Please call the winery at 800-707-5789 or reservations@josephphelps.com to schedule a visit.

Joseph Phelps Vineyards is a family-owned winery committed to crafting world class, estate-grown wines. Founded in 1973 when Joe Phelps purchased a former cattle ranch near St. Helena, the winery now controls and farms 390 acres of vines in Napa Valley on eight estate vineyards in St. Helena, the Stags Leap District, Oakville, Rutherford, Oak Knoll District, Carneros and South Napa. In pursuit of an ideal location to grow Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, in 1999 the Phelps family purchased land near the town of Freestone on the western Sonoma Coast, planted 100 acres of vineyards, and built a dedicated winery. Phelps is best known for its flagship wine, Insignia, a Napa Valley blend of red Bordeaux varieties first produced in 1974.

Please note: Due to the nature of our tastings and to ensure an intimate experience, we cannot allow anyone under the age of 21, which includes infants and children. Also, only certified service animals are permitted at Joseph Phelps Vineyards. Thank you for understanding.
