About Etude Wines

Just minutes from downtown Napa, Etude lies in the renowned Pinot Noir growing region of Carneros. Etude’s modern and contemporary décor complement the Carneros landscape. The Etude team is dedicated to sustainable farming practices.

Read More

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.

I've been here several times before and have had very engaging hosts and good wines in the past. This visit felt very perfunctory, was a challenge to book, and the host seemed fairly uninformed. She didn't even try to engage with two of my friends who are also Carneros growers and wine makers. Overall it feels like Etude is struggling to provide a good experience.

We visited 7 wineries during our stay in Napa Valley and this was without doubt the worst of them. Poor service, wines served in a negligible amount for a tasting of this value, did not allow us to enter the tasting area having to stay in the sun and the warmth of the external environment. Finally, experience that we will discourage others. We are part of brotherhoods in Brazil. They will know.

Very nice wines. Pretty terrace to drink on. The host was hard to understand. She had an accent and I feel bad saying that because she was very knowledgeable. Also every winery we were to that weekend waived the tasting fee if you bought wine there. We bought many bottles. So we were a little disappointed

Our tasting at Etude was a treat - we started with a crisp pinot gris and then on to sample 3 Pinots and 2 Cabernets. We expressed interest in more Cabernets and were then shown 3 vintages which was great to compare and contrast. It was a great educational tasting and highly recommended

It was Saturday, warm outside but lovely. We did have several people who were going to be our special host because we were first going to sit inside then outside. That was a little unsettling.but after we got settled all went well. Your wines do sell themselves, easy job. So good, needed some cheese.

I had a reservation for 11:00 but showed up at 10:00 because I was from out of town and misjudged the travel time. Anyway, I was the only one there and we started the tasting early. It was fun and very informative. I ended up having a lot of questions and the gentleman from the winery ended up giving a tour of the vineyard and we talked for two hours. He explained everything about the wines.

Etude offered a perfect setting for my first Napa area wine tasting experience. The staff was lovely and knowledgeable. They took the time to explain the area and regions and provide specific information around the wine in addition to answering any questions. They allowed time in between the samplings so we could enjoy and take in the beautiful scenery. It was a very enjoyable experience.
