Etude specializes in two classic red varieties – Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. Though modeled on the best from Burgundy and Bordeaux, these wines speak clearly of their contemporary California origins, combining rich, ripe fruit with an elegant structure and opulent mouthfeel.

Etude’s Pinot Noirs, including a highly esteemed bottling made from rare heirloom varieties, and its small production of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc, are vinified from grapes grown in the cool Carneros region. Fruit for the winery’s Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is sourced from the warmer, norther half of the Napa Valley.

The consistent high quality of the grapes Etude grows and sources, combined wiht the skill and experience of Jon Priest, explains why Etude wines consistently earn the highest accolades from consumers, trade and wine critics.

We found the quality of the wine to be enjoyable, as well as the service; however the cold atmosphere of the general tasting room and background noise led to our large group purchasing much less than at comparably-sized wineries.

We were referred to this winery by another winery. That tells you right there they are doing something right. We’ve been to Napa several times and had been looking for some new ones to try. Asked around & decided to give it a try. Some of the best wines we’ve had this visit. Each one better then the next. Ended up joining the wine club & looking forward to getting shipments in the future.

A nice place to have a tasting--they have excellent wines a good setting amidst rolling hills of vineyards. It's nice to do something a little different than 100% Napa heavy cabs, and Etude should be high on your list for mixing in some excellent Pinots while still including the top-notch cabs you would expect from a Napa winery.

Exceptional experience. Grounds are beautiful. The Still House the perfect events space. The Angel's Loft unlike any tasting space I've ever seen overlooking the production winery. Incredible line up of AVA cabernets -each one better than the next - and they paired potato chips and shaved sheep's milk cheese. The perfect pairing! Jason was knowledgeable, charming and entertaining. Awesome!

My husband and I had a great time, but our host of the girl was unexpected and we were very disappointed. But there were a few people at Etude talked to us about wine and offered great wine to us. The experience was become great. I hoped that the girl shouldn’t be the front of the face if she was not comfortable to speak about their wine. But thanks to the other staffs we had agreat experience.

Friendly - beautiful setup. Educational and interesting to taste the Pinots from all their regions. Even had some grapes from New Zealand that were not part of the normal tasting, but came out on request. That was everyone's fav pinot. They can't ship it out of state, but the others on this tasting were heading to a cruise ship and all took this pinot as their one allowed bottle for the cruise.
