The Inglenook legacy began in 1879, when Gustav Niebaum, a Finnish sea captain, wine connoisseur, and entrepreneur, came to Rutherford to build a wine estate that would rival Europe's finest. When Niebaum's grandnephew, John Daniel Jr. inherited the chateau and vineyards in the 1930's, Inglenook had already earned international acclaim, which was made legendary by the famed 1941 vintage.

Francis and Eleanor Coppola purchased the property in 1975 and have spent forty years reuniting the original vineyards, returning winemaking operations to the chateau, and restoring Inglenook's illustrious heritage with the help of renowned wine consultant Stephane Derenoncour and Manager Director and Winemaker, Philippe Bascaules. In honor of this estate and its historical significance, we have restored the name Inglenook.

Great tour!! Our guide, Sebasatian, was awesome, friendly, gregarious, and very knowledgeable. The chateau is tres magnifique and I am not even French. The walk around the property and through the cellar are such a nice way to experience a winery... they should all be like this rather than the normal mobbed tasting counter. Then the wines, well, they speak for themselves, great overall!!

By far this is my first recommendation to anyone. We enjoyed every minute of it, especially the history and dedication to that history. We will be back!

With so many vineyards to choose from, it's hard to narrow down but my bf is a big Francis Ford Coppola fan so we decided to do the tour & tasting. The property is incredible! We had a great tour with Sebastian and learned so much about the history of Inglenook. The wine is delicious, next time we will sit in the bistro and enjoy! We also met Eleanor in passing, what a highlight of the trip!

Inglenook was by far our favorite part of our 4 day visit in Napa. We loved it so much that we spent 2 days there. From the wine tasting, to the cave tours, to just strolling around the property- the place is gorgeous and full of history. We even got to meet and take pictures with the owner, Francis. Do yourself a favor and visit this historic property! Highly recommend a tour with Anthony!

My husband and I participated in the Inglenook Experience with the Historical Tour. It was fantastic. By far and away our favorite tour in the area. It is beautiful, and the history is fascinating. We enjoyed every minute. The wines and cheeses were absolutely wonderful as well. Again, favorites in the area. Guide/Sommelier, Kenton, was terrific. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be back!

The tour and tasting with John was amazing. The Rubicon was superior tasting wine but we enjoyed them all. John was very knowledgeable with information regarding the wine and Chateau. My only suggestion for ambience was to have candles in the caves as will as the regular light. We went to another winery that had the candles which made the ambience special. I would highly recommend this tour.

Not at all accommodating for late arrivals. Our uber driver had difficulty finding our house and the weather was very bad, so we were 10 minutes late. We were not allowed to catch up to our tour OR get a refund. We had to pay $5 more for a tasting or lose $45 we paid for the tour. However, John who did our tasting was really great, and is the sole reason behind the stars I am giving Inglenook.

Mr. Coppola's museum collection of zoetrope's, the Tucker car and movie memorabilia make this winery unique, to say the least. The breathtaking staircase is matched only by the beautiful wine, particularly the Rubicon!

Graciously they accommodated us but I feel that this mix up affected the tour quality. David, the tour guide tried the best he could but 12 in a group is just too huge.

We wanted to revisit (taste) one of the wines again as we were considering making a purchase, but the tour guide rushed off and said to meet him in the other room. He was not to be found. Thus, we did not make a purchase.
