The Inglenook legacy began in 1879, when Gustav Niebaum, a Finnish sea captain, wine connoisseur, and entrepreneur, came to Rutherford to build a wine estate that would rival Europe's finest. When Niebaum's grandnephew, John Daniel Jr. inherited the chateau and vineyards in the 1930's, Inglenook had already earned international acclaim, which was made legendary by the famed 1941 vintage.

Francis and Eleanor Coppola purchased the property in 1975 and have spent forty years reuniting the original vineyards, returning winemaking operations to the chateau, and restoring Inglenook's illustrious heritage with the help of renowned wine consultant Stephane Derenoncour and Manager Director and Winemaker, Philippe Bascaules. In honor of this estate and its historical significance, we have restored the name Inglenook.

Very interesting. More Disneyland than the rest. But a lot of $ was spent on the place and one-off so worth a visit if you’ve marked your favorites off the list. They do not sell to stores or restaurants but have a TON of inventory (aging). Can not grasp how such a newer wine has so much word of mouth sales, seems odd. Wine was just OK.

I live in the Napa Valley and I need major justification to spend a few extra dollars for "upscale" wine tours and tasting. On this occasion, I'm glad I did. Having visited Inglenook many, many years ago while under corporate ownership, I was delighted by the current experiences of the beautiful venue and much improved wine. The tour was interesting and the cheese/wine pairings were excellent.

Beautiful grounds and facility. Our host was great. Tour was wonderful. But, because the tour went a few minutes longer than expected, our time to pick up a bottle of the Rubicon was cut short due to the slow service in the gift shop, as we were running late to get to our next tasting in Sonoma. Disappointed we didn't get to pick up a bottle. Can't have it shipped either as we are in Canada.
