About Barnett Vineyards...

With passion and patience, Fiona and Hal Barnett created this vineyard and winery in 1983 with the intent of producing small amounts of hand crafted Cabernet Sauvignon wines from their estate. Since the first vintage of Barnett Vineyards, Spring Mountain has proven to deserve its own AVA and become known as a unique microclimate, producing exceptional Cabernet Sauvignons and Merlots.

The vineyards are located at the top of Spring Mountain, at elevation 2,000ft, and planted on steep terraces that follow the contour of the land. In some places, the grade averages in excess of 35%. Mountainside farming is very challenging. The vines must struggle to reach nutrients and water in the soil and, as a result, yield only one to two tons per acre. The elements of sun, temperature, and well-drained porous soils give an advantageous water stress to the vines and contribute to the depth, richness and character of the wines. Grapes are harvested by hand; vineyard row by row, as optimum ripeness and maturity is reached. Fermentation is done in small batches.

Since the winery's first 100 cases in 1989, Barnett Vineyards has grown to approximately 6,000 cases total production. Rattlesnake Hill and Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignons are the focus at the estate with total Cabernet production varying between 2,100 and 3,000 cases annually. In addition, Barnett Vineyards produces limited amounts of Merlot, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grown from single vineyards located in well-desired appellations.

Had a really nice private tour a d tasting at this small operation in the hills. Definitely believe the instructions, it's a hike from the valley. Didn't get a chance to sample rattlesnake (nearly 100% allocated now) but enjoyed the rest. $200 minimum per tasting fee to waive. Really beautiful property and view, and clearly winemakers that care about what they're doing.

Barnett was experiencing a difficult day due to rude and late-arriving visitors and handled it and them with consideration and grace. We arrived in the middle of the chaotic situation the guests had caused and were treated wonderfully. Barnett provides a personal and intimate experience, much different and more pleasurable than the other wineries we visited. We will advise everyone we know to go.

We have been a fan of Barnett wines for a number of years. Our son had visited the winery in the past and suggested that we add it to our venue. We were not disappointed. The day was perfect and the view from the winery was awesome. We had an excellent tasting, signed up for the wine club, and had some wines shipped home.

Although we were a little late for the tasting, we were disappointed that we only sat at the table with about 3 wines. For $40 each, you would think we would be toured around the vineyard and taken into the cave. We actually went in by ourselves and looked. This was the most beautiful view and vineyard. The host was very informative.

This is our third trip to Barnett. We stayed in Sonoma and visited many vineyards during the 8 days we were there. Barnett is unequivocally the most breathtaking vineyard I have ever seen. This family loves what they do, and Stephanie is an amazingly gracious host. The views of Napa Valley can't be described, and the wine stays in your mouth for minutes after you swallow. Remember....Rattlesnake.

The unofficial greeters, Sarge and Riley, increase the pleasure of the visit. We would rate Barnett as one of the most special places to taste and well worth the drive up the mountain.

It was a long drive up the mountain, but well worth it! Riley the winery dog came out to greet us in the parking lot, and showed us where to go. I thought that was pretty impressive. The view was spectacular. Our hostess ( one of the Barnett kids) was wonderful! So friendly and informative. The wine was really really good. The only negative was that they sell out too fast and I couldn't get it!

Barnett is a unique experience in a beautiful setting. Fantastic wines, fantastic hospitality and an amazing setting high atop Spring Mountain. You can't do much better than that! I'd highly recommend to anyone interested in higher-end wines that are age-worthy. Fantastic Chard, Pinot, and Cabernets!

The views were stunning, the staff was beyond friendly, and oh yeah...the wine was fantastic. The whole experience was breathtaking.

As soon as we stepped out of the car, we knew this visit was going to be special. The view is spectacular! Our host, Kevin, quickly made us feel at home (Sauvignon Blanc was poured before we could shake hands). Barnett is less about the tour and more about the people and the process. By the end of our trip to Napa, after visiting 12 wineries in total, Barnett ranked as 1 of our 2 favs!

If you're looking for Napa pretentiousness, you won't find it at Barnett. Instead, you'll find friendly people who make and pour outstanding, small-production wine, and you'll find a stunning view of the northern end of Napa from Barnett's perch on Spring Mountain. Especially on a sunny day, it's hard to beat this combination of great wine and equally great setting.

The view is seriously breathe taking and the wine is incredible. From the moment we met Nicole at Barnett, we knew it would be a great tasting. If you get a chance, take a picnic lunch to the vineyard. You will not be disappointed by the caves, hospitality, and of course, the wine! Our favorite experience this trip!

It is a long drive up and somewhat easy to get lost along the way. But let me be perfectly clear, it is worth it. The entire staff welcomed us, and made us feel very special. The Reserve Tasting experience was second-to-none because of Kevin our host (and we've done about 5 or 6 over the years), and the wines of Barnett are superb which made it that much better. Finally, the VIEW is to die for. GO

Sort of a minimalist, less is more experience. The property is pretty but there is not much to be experienced there outside of the tasting itself. Beautiful views of the valley below St. Helena. The wine was amazing. The experience was extremely casual and laid back which was refreshing. Despite having exceptional wine, the vineyard staff was not pretentious at all, and were very welcoming.
