About Trefethen Family Vineyards

One Family, One Estate, One Passion

Read More

Trefethen Family Vineyards is one of Napa’s pioneering wineries. Founded in 1968, John and Janet Trefethen helped define what Napa is today. Five decades later, this legend is still family owned and now includes the third generation, who remain committed to the craft of 100% estate grown wines.

The Historic Winery
Originally constructed in 1886, this historic landmark was recently restored. Designed by the leading California winery architect at that time, Hamden McIntyre, the building is a rare example of a wooden three-story “gravity flow” winery. The first floor has now been rededicated to the aging of wines in barrel. The second floor features a new tasting room, with a stunning view of the estate vineyards. Under the original soaring redwood ceilings, visitors savor this piece of Napa Valley’s history, as they sample Trefethen’s estate grown wines, with three different flights to choose from. They also offer an in-depth educational tour and tasting experience that touches on the history of Napa and the family's approach to the craft of winegrowing. Reservations are required for the tour and suggested for the seated tastings, especially on weekends.

The Villa
This former Trefethen family residence is a fine example of the Arts and Crafts Movement in California. The elegant woodwork reflects the style’s embrace of craftsmanship and natural materials. Surrounded by gorgeous gardens, the Villa is now the home of Trefethen’s 50th Anniversary and Reserve tasting experiences. After checking in at the Historic Winery, guests are escorted to the Villa. Seated at a large table, guests are led through either a flight of reserve wines or aged selections from the cellar. Anniversary tasting is offered at 10:30 am daily. Reserve tasting is offered at 1:00 or 3:00 pm.

I am a past wine club member. I have always loved the Trefethen vineyards and have many fond memories learning about wine and wine making The first part of the tasting was amazing. Unfortunately our Wine Guide Dan abruptly left to go to lunch before the end of our tasting and it ruined the experience for us. I was considering rejoining the wine club and decided not to based on this experience.

Trefethen has always been one of my favorite wineries, and I visit every year. This year, though, it was packed with people in their new tasting room, which seems quite a bit more loud and hectic. The wines were good, but not as good as in the past. Our host was great, but he had a lot of tables to cover. The delicious breadsticks, though, were much appreciated.

After coming from silver oak, which was really high-dollar and had nowhere to sit, it was a relief to come to trefethen. Our host Katie was knowledgeable and hilarious. The ambiance was so comfortable and laid-back. My girlfriend sat on big comfy chairs, drank wine, and hung out for a couple of hours. They even let us stay a little past close.
