Monday through Sunday 10:00 - 3:30 by appointment.
(707) 252-8463

Only grapes grown in our wide-spaced planted, low-yielding 33 acre vineyard on the estate are used to make O’Brien Estate wines. The grapes are hand-harvested, crushed and fermented in small batches in the winery adjacent to the vineyard and our home, then aged exclusively in French oak barrels (33% new for Chardonnay, 75% new for red wines, 100% new for Reserve reds). David Yorgensen has been our winemaker since 2005.

Our mission is to both produce the finest wines possible from our own piece of heaven and to create a place for our guests to have the rare experience of visiting a self-contained estate with vineyards, winery, and owner’s home. Walk in our vineyards, touch our barrels and bottling line, sit in our backyard, and share our passion for the bottled poetry of wine. Is this heaven? For us it is, and we hope it is for you too.
