Trefethen Family Vineyards

One of Napa Valley’s pioneering wineries, Trefethen Family Vineyards crafts distinguished estate-grown wines that express the unique spirit of their land, vines, and people. The dedication of the Trefethen family is manifest in every aspect of the operation, from the soil to the table, including sustainable farming, thoughtful winemaking, and gracious hospitality.

Tasting Experiences
A visit to Trefethen Family Vineyards is an extraordinary experience. The long tree-lined driveway is flanked by their estate vineyards and most tastings take place inside the atmospheric historic winery. From the Dry Riesling to HāLo, Trefethen’s wines are bright on the palate and known for being food-friendly and cellar-worthy. To experience these wines right where the grapes are grown and the wines are crafted is truly memorable.

Wine & Food Experiences
With wines that are made to go with food and a long culinary history that includes hosting the Napa Valley Cooking Class for over 20 years, the new wine and food experiences at Trefethen provide the ultimate immersion into the estate. Drawing inspiration from the expansive estate gardens, Winery Chef Chris Kennedy creates dishes that celebrate the integrity of the ingredients while complementing the beauty, balance, and brilliance of Trefethen’s wines.

Tasting Flight - The Historic Winery

Originally constructed in 1886, this historic landmark is the center of Trefethen's visitor center. Designed by leading California winery architect Hamden McIntyre, the building is a rare example of a wooden three-story “gravity flow” winery.

The first floor is now dedicated to the aging of wines in barrel, while the second floor houses our tasting room with a stunning view of the estate vineyards. Under the original soaring redwood ceilings, visitors can savor this piece of Napa Valley’s history as they sample our estate-grown wines with three different flights to choose from.

$25-$35 per person

Reservations are suggested for our Tasting Flights.
