About Keenan Winery

Keenan winery is located in the Spring Mountain District of the Napa Valley.

Read More

High in the Mayacamas Range, at an elevation of 1,700 feet above the Napa Valley floor, are Spring Mountain and the Robert Keenan Winery and vineyards. This area was first identified as prime vineyard land by Peter Conradi in the late 19th century when he planted 100 acres of terraced vineyard in Zinfandel and Syrah grapes. The Conradi Winery operated until Prohibition when the vineyards and winery fell out of use. In 1974, Robert Keenan purchased 180 acres of forest on the defunct Conradi Winery site.

No vines remained. Only the crumbling walls of the former winery and a few old broken tanks told of its history, but Robert was certain the mountain top vineyards would be perfect for an estate winery. He replaced tree stumps and rocks with rows of Cabernet and Chardonnay, hired an engineer to redesign the original winery structure, and brought in a contractor to begin construction. The winery was made operational just in time for the harvest of 1977. From that time on, Keenan has earned a great reputation for producing wines of intense character and renowned acclaim.

Keenan focuses on three varietals -- Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. It produces nearly 10,000 cases per year. Combining the dedication of experienced winemakers with a commitment to excellence, the Robert Keenan Winery has distinguished itself as a maker of exceptional wines -- in limited varietals and quantity. Wines for sipping, wines for enjoying, wines for enhancing any occasion. In the last six vintages, 33 wines have been rated between 90 and 96 points by Robert Parker Jr.

Keenan is one of our favorite family-owned Spring Mountain producers. Nobody makes a better merlot, and their cabernet franc is just absolutely delicious. We had a large group - 6 adults and 2 kids - and Keenan creates such a family friendly environment. Laura runs their tasting experience and she is the best! We love visiting Keenan and cant wait until our next visit!

From her vast knowledge of the property, the wine-making process, and wine in general, her expertise made the entire morning fascinating. The wine was divine and we truly enjoyed visiting the cellar to see production areas and sample from the barrels! What a unique and special privilege. Thank you, Keenan Winery! We'll be back!

The drive up Spring Mountain to Keenan is unbelievably beautiful. Redwoods and ferns line the narrow road. At the winery, we were graciously welcomed by Laura. She treated us to a fantastic tasting. Keenan’s standard tasting option features seven wines, which is almost unheard of. Keenan and Spring Mountain are not to be missed.

Myself and 6 friends went on a weekend getaway to wine country where we attended about 10 wineries. Keenan was by far everyone's experience. The winery offers a perfect balance of rustic and high-end class that people seek when vacationing in Napa. The winery has been in the family since the 70's and Riley (sic) Keenan ensured that we had an incredible experience. Would recommend to everyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Keenan Winery. The drive from St. Helena was beautiful in the rain. The wines were showing fantastically, with the general consensus being the Merlot Reserve. The Library Release offerings were diverse and offered some solid vintages at reasonable prices. Have always and will continue to enjoy the wines.

Family run winery that is beautiful and welcoming. Located at then end of a narrow and windy road, the secluded feel adds to the ambiance. The wines are amazing and very reasonably priced considering the level of quality. Have been visiting for several years now and it’s one we take all of our friends and family to when visiting the Napa Valley.

We have purchased their wines for years. However, the wines we tasted last week, were good, but not at their price point. We had been in Sonoma for three days before our visit to Keenan. Our favorite wine at Keenan cost 125.00. There were many wines we tasted that week that were excellent but $50.00 less per bottle. That was the same for other Napa places too. I am not picking on Keenan.

I ask for an evaluation of each winery we visited from each member of the group. Keenan received a 5 (highest rating) from each person. Laura is extremely easy to work with and most accomodating.

Laura set up our visit which was recommended by our friend Paul. First of all the drive was spectacular up the Mtn side to this tucked away vineyard. We were met outside and doors open to the winery which unfolded a serene view of Keenan's rolling hills of grapes. The tasting was really fun 9 wines. Yes, 9! I loved the openness of the tasting room not dark and gloomy but light and airy.
