Opus One Winery is a winery in Oakville, California, United States. The wine was called napamedoc until 1982 when it was named Opus One. The winery was founded as a joint venture between Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Château Mouton Rothschild and Robert Mondavi to create a single Bordeaux style blend based upon Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It is located across State Route 29 from the Robert Mondavi Winery. The creation of this winery venture in 1980 was big news in the wine industry; de Rothschild's involvement added an air of respectability to the burgeoning Napa wine region. The first vintage, 1979 was released in 1984 at the same time as the 1980 vintage. For a while it was the most expensive Californian wine, and to date still ranks among the most expensive red wines produced in the Napa Valley, with the 2014 vintage retailing for $325 per bottle. In 1989 a new winery was built just down the road, the first vintage from the new winery was from 1991 and was released in 1994.
Since 1993, they have produced a second wine, Overture.

  • Opus One is quintessentially Napa Valley. Their winery with its views of the valley floor is majestic. The tour, with Leo as our guide, was truly exceptional and informative. The tasting of 3 library wines paired with small bites was wonderful. Finished the tour by hanging out on their balcony enjoying the sun and the view while sipping their magnificent wine. It by no means is cheap but it truly is an experience worth having.
  • Such an amazing property and gorgeous environment. We came here for our anniversary, and it was the best place for tons of photos. The experience was worth the drive from Washington state. We definitely went home with a bottle of wine.
