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.

A very nice picturesque place with a great view. A bit out of the way but the woman pouring was SO nice and comforting, she really enhanced the experience. Once again we advised we had the cellar pass and she said it was not necessary and did not even charge us. Great customer service. Place is quite a bit out of the way but if you have time it's a nice place to visit.

Riley Keenan, grandson of the founder, came out with his adorable dog to the parking lot to greet us!! From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome and at home. HIs knowledge about the family history, vineyards, development of the brand and wine was exceptional. Riley is a great brand ambassador! The wines were delicious and well priced! He took us on a Kawasaki Mule ride thru the vineyards!!

Keenan remains my favorite winery in the valley. Their low key approach to food and wine (and dogs) with friends sets them apart from many of the higher profile wineries. Laura, Michael and the whole crew do a great job. And most importantly, continue to put out phenomenal wines.

WE are big fans of Keenan. The tasting room provides a nice lodge like setting. Laura the host is wonderful. they grow numerous varietals to satisfy every taste bud. Personally like the cab franc the best, but all are good and reasonably priced. The "I would recommend this to drop down is annoying..":(

We had an appointment. We walked in and there was no where to sit. We had to stand at the bar. The lady pouring was too busy with other members and left us standing awkwardly for 15 minutes. I will never darken Keenans doorstep again. I travel to Napa 3 times a year and belong to 5 clubs.

Outstanding visit. The vibe is informal, sort of like the old days in Napa. They also comp the tasting fee if you buy a bottle of wine, which is all too rare these days in Napa. Great hospitality.The wines are outstanding and they taste through the entire lineup, including the reserve wines. Just a great tasting experience on Spring Mountain that is a bit of a throwback to simpler days in Napa!

Keenan is one of our favorite family-owned Spring Mountain producers. Nobody makes a better merlot, and their cabernet franc is just absolutely delicious. We had a large group - 6 adults and 2 kids - and Keenan creates such a family friendly environment. Laura runs their tasting experience and she is the best! We love visiting Keenan and cant wait until our next visit!
