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.

Laura and Matt (hope I have his name right!!!) were very hospitable and informative. This is our second trip to Keenan, and we love the wine and the setting, though it is NASTY to get to (hahaha). Laure was kind enough to send my wife Molly a picture and description of the Christmas tree, which we are hunting for now (we live in the midwest). Suffice to say, we will be back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Keenan Winery. The drive from St. Helena was beautiful in the rain. The wines were showing fantastically, with the general consensus being the Merlot Reserve. The Library Release offerings were diverse and offered some solid vintages at reasonable prices. Have always and will continue to enjoy the wines.

Family run winery that is beautiful and welcoming. Located at then end of a narrow and windy road, the secluded feel adds to the ambiance. The wines are amazing and very reasonably priced considering the level of quality. Have been visiting for several years now and it’s one we take all of our friends and family to when visiting the Napa Valley.

We have purchased their wines for years. However, the wines we tasted last week, were good, but not at their price point. We had been in Sonoma for three days before our visit to Keenan. Our favorite wine at Keenan cost 125.00. There were many wines we tasted that week that were excellent but $50.00 less per bottle. That was the same for other Napa places too. I am not picking on Keenan.

Laura set up our visit which was recommended by our friend Paul. First of all the drive was spectacular up the Mtn side to this tucked away vineyard. We were met outside and doors open to the winery which unfolded a serene view of Keenan's rolling hills of grapes. The tasting was really fun 9 wines. Yes, 9! I loved the openness of the tasting room not dark and gloomy but light and airy.

Upon arriving at the vineyards my wife and I were immediately met with some of the most stunning views in all of wine country. We were promptly greeted and immediately were (thoroughly) enjoying our wine. Michael Keenan (and his son Reilly) met us and and gave us some history on the third generation vineyard along with a property tour. I wish I could write more-It was absolute perfection!

The wine is delicious (yet reasonable), the view/scenery is breathtaking, & the people are extremely friendly and welcoming.

Keenan has an impressive line-up of wines to taste through and several reserves are included. The quality of their wine is fantastic, definitely one of the best experiences in Napa Valley.

Reilly and his dog, Hashbrown, were extremely welcoming. His knowledge of wine was very deep but he was careful not to talk over our heads. We definitely felt that we were sitting down with an old friend discussing and enjoying fine wine. Keenan has enjoyable whites and great reds from ready to drink Syrahs to add to the cellar Cab and Cab Francs. We will come back often.
