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.

Very enjoyable visit. we drink the wines at home so it was nice to visit the property. The tasting area was fine, it was a little hectic bc of number of people (although a comparatively small amount) and only one vineyard employee pouring - she did a great job. Certainly would recommend it to others. The low end of our scorecard was ‘ambiance’ it just wasn’t OTT, but again...it was real.

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.

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..":(
