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.

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.

Upon reaching the estate, there was an impression of relaxed elegance. A shame that a tour wasn't something that seemed to be offered. The staff were knowledgeable and were able to discuss and answer questions regarding the various types of wines- learning more about wine in general was something that I always wanted to do.

We were greeted with a smile when we entered, given a chilled glass of Pinot Gris and offered the choice of sitting inside or on the patio. We chose inside, to stay cool, and sipped our wine. Shortly, Edith came to our table, introduced herself and proceeded to pour our first tasting wine. she was very informative and pleasant to chat with! Great experience! Thank you, Edith!

we had signed up for a pinot tasting tour and the host didn't recognize that at first and just had us for a regular tasting. But then got Robert on our case. He was fabulous. He noted that we should have been on for the pinot tasting but said we'd have more fun sitting outdoors in the lovely weather and he'd get us the same wines. Robert made for a perfect experience.

Beautiful room and beautiful layout but A confusing experience. When you were drinking wine and become a tad tipsy having so many glasses on the table, many of us kept getting confused which tasting belong to which glass when it was already pre poured before we entered the room. My only advice is not to pre pour the wine. Also warning they precharge for the tastings...

Walking in it felt like we were interrupting a private meeting or intruding in someone's personal space. People looked at us, but no one acknowledged or greeted us. Eventually we initiated a conversation with the people standing at the bar area and asked if we were supposed to sit where our names were on a sign, and they responded just as unpleasantly as expected based on our initial impression.

Incredible experience. Who knew that Etude had such a history in the pinot noir movement in California. Heirloom Pinot is a must try for any true wine lover. Blown away by the quality of every single wine we tried. And of course we pounded a bottle of their amazing rose on the patio and skipped the next winery all together.
