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.

I fell in love with Inglenook during my first visit and it is still my favorite place to stop during any visit to or through northern California! I've been a member since that first visit in 2013 and returned with friends and family numerous times! Love it!!

Inglenook is not too be missed if you are visiting Napa. It is one of the most gorgeous vineyards in Napa. Its beauty is only eclipsed by the unbelievable quality and taste of their Rubicon Cabernet. Don't miss the opportunitty to make a reservation and enjoy the best of Napa Valley.

This was an old world style of a visit to Inglenook. Some real history and charm to this place in a beautiful setting back from the valley road. Clearly big investment too over recent years which is making a big difference and the wines were excellent.....very elegant style for Napa which I found refreshing.

We arrived expecting a fantastic tour as we have heard about all the history at Inglenook. The tour was OK as we visited the basics at the winery. We really enjoyed the wine/cheese tasting at the end of the tour. Great wines with excellent cheese pairings. We would of loved to get upstairs to where there is more history about the winery. The Estate is beautiful and maintained very well.

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.
