About Keenan Winery

Keenan winery is located in the Spring Mountain District of the Napa Valley.

Read More

High in the Mayacamas Range, at an elevation of 1,700 feet above the Napa Valley floor, are Spring Mountain and the Robert Keenan Winery and vineyards. This area was first identified as prime vineyard land by Peter Conradi in the late 19th century when he planted 100 acres of terraced vineyard in Zinfandel and Syrah grapes. The Conradi Winery operated until Prohibition when the vineyards and winery fell out of use. In 1974, Robert Keenan purchased 180 acres of forest on the defunct Conradi Winery site.

No vines remained. Only the crumbling walls of the former winery and a few old broken tanks told of its history, but Robert was certain the mountain top vineyards would be perfect for an estate winery. He replaced tree stumps and rocks with rows of Cabernet and Chardonnay, hired an engineer to redesign the original winery structure, and brought in a contractor to begin construction. The winery was made operational just in time for the harvest of 1977. From that time on, Keenan has earned a great reputation for producing wines of intense character and renowned acclaim.

Keenan focuses on three varietals -- Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. It produces nearly 10,000 cases per year. Combining the dedication of experienced winemakers with a commitment to excellence, the Robert Keenan Winery has distinguished itself as a maker of exceptional wines -- in limited varietals and quantity. Wines for sipping, wines for enjoying, wines for enhancing any occasion. In the last six vintages, 33 wines have been rated between 90 and 96 points by Robert Parker Jr.

Haven't been there for a while, so the new building was a departure from many of our previous visits. The wine tasting room is quite large and has different areas established to accommodate a larger number of visitors, for instance, a nice long table the seats 8-12 for the wine tour companies that make the trek up the mountain road. Still a friendly, relaxed visit with great with great wines.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Keenan. Tasting room is very nice and views from Spring Mountain are beautiful. The wines we tasted were absolutely great and we got to taste the next vintage of Merlot from the barrel in their storage facility. Don't be turned off because the winery is not with the cast of thousands in Napa valley - a trip to the top of Spring Mountain is well worth it.

I have been big fan of Keenan wines over the years but had never visited the winery. Laura is great. The views are too and the wine - well I needed no convincing. I specifically went to taste the Cabernet Franc and it did not disappoint. And I did not leave empty handed.

The wines are amazing and truly exemplary of old Napa Valley. If you miss the age ability and don't want fruit-bombs coming from the valley, don't miss Keenan!

Located in the hills via a winding road. A quaint building with a balcony overlooking the valley. Our host was very gracious and knowledgeable. We were the last tasting appt so it was pleasant that it was not crowded (only 2 other couples there) and we didn't feel rushed to leave so we could enjoy ourselves.

Laura does an excellent job of hosting and presenting Keenan's wines. There was a wide selection of wines available for tasting (about 8 or 9 reds) and she provides a description of each with corresponding highlights on taste, style, production and grape origin. The facility is roomy and very comfortable with a tasting bar, seats and tables to accommodate anyone's tasting preference.

The drive up is a little daunting ID you aren't used to narrow mountain roads, but it's worth the drive. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the region and gave us recommendations of other wineries to try based on what we enjoyed at their tasting. It divinely had the feel of a small business, which was lovely.
