Create an itinerary including Trefethen Family Vineyards
In 1968, the Trefethen family purchased seven farms surrounding a magnificent, but run-down, 19th-century winery in southern Napa Valley and created Trefethen Family Vineyards. At the time, there were fewer than 30 working wineries in the Napa Valley. True to the family’s original vision of creating a classic wine estate, they have never purchased outside grapes. Instead, they take extraordinary care of their two sustainably farmed estate vineyards in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Today, after 50 years, the Trefethen family’s third generation, Lorenzo and Hailey, assist their parents in continuing the family tradition of passion for the land, its people and the art of crafting exceptional Napa Valley wines.

  • We did an upgraded tasting with food on their porch. It was gorgeous and relaxing, and we love their wines - we are members of their wine club, which I also recommend!

  • On this, our first trip to Napa, there were wineries we expected to enjoy when we visited and wines we expected to love. But none were as much a happy surprise as Trefethen. My wife’s comment sums it up nicely: “Wow, I love EVERY one of these wines!” Not only were the wines wonderful, but the experience (@The Villa) was beautiful and extremely enjoyable, thanks in no small part to our host Gregg (Thanks Gregg!). We were celebrating our 30th anniversary with this trip and Trefethen treated us very well. Beautiful grounds, great wines, great pours (with some off-menu - Halo!), great service and a lovely paired charcuterie board. And to top it off, Trefethen has some of the most affordable pricing on their bottles - even better with member pricing. I’m sure we’ll always have some bottles on hand now. Make Trefethen a stop on your Napa visit!
  • By far my favorite wine tasting we had in Napa. We chose the food pairing and tasting and we got to hear from the sous chef about each dish before it was served. The wine consultant was so knowledgeable and answered every single question. The experience felt so intimate but also luxurious like they rolled out the red carpet just for us. The food was incredible and I came to learn that I surprisingly like red wines. Highly recommend.
