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.

I have been tasting at Keenan for years. They have a consistent, high quality to their wines and a good variety. I continue to be a big fan of the Cab Franc and Merlots. Laura is always hospitable and the tasting room is comfortable and usually fairly quiet with beautiful vineyard views.

Laura, our hostess, was wonderful. Warm, gracious and extremely generous. We tasted through the entire list, plus a few special wines she pulled out from the cellar. Since we were the only ones in the tasting room (we were there on a Friday), she sat with us, and gave us the history of the winery, the family, as also the winemaker. We signed up for club membership on the spot!

I can't think of a better way to spend time, than by visiting Keenan. The wine tasting was warm and friendly, the wines are delicious, and some of the best views in Wine Country. It's absolutely well worth the gorgeous drive up Spring Mountain, and the winery is a lovely respite from the masses sampling wines in the Valley. An absolute perfect experience - we will be back. Thank you!!!

After driving up the beautiful road to Keenan Winery we found a very beautiful tasting room and were helped by Laura. She was very knowledgeable about Keenan winery and knew every aspect of the operations. She showed us the barrel room and it was very impressive. We got to meet Riley Keenan and were impressed with his energy and knowledge also. The wines were delicious from the Chardonnay to Syrah

We shared a tasting with another couple, but we were all standing in the main room, with only soda crackers and water as a provided complement to the wine. I am a fan of their wine, but felt this was a bare-bones kind of experience, surpassed by other vineyards we visited.

Our experience at Keenan Winery was extremely pleasant. We were greeted upon arrival and they quickly made us feel at home. They had several samples ready for us, but also tailored some of the options once hearing our preferences flavor wise. The property is beautiful, we were given a quick tour of the grounds including the cellar, and all questions we had were answered. I would highly recommend.

Wonderful location in Spring Mountain. Casual atmosphere with beautiful views and most importantly, consistently excellent wines throughout the entire tasting lineup. I am not a big fan of California Chardonnay but the mountain fruit really shines in this version. All the reds were well balanced and delicious. Don't hesitate if you want to try some good Spring Mountain wine.
