We pride ourselves on making one varietal that is food-friendly and deliciously drinkable upon release. Our story begins in the early 1970's when Ray Duncan befriended winegrower Justin Meyer. The two formed a partnership and co-founded Silver Oak Cellars in 1972 with the bold vision of producing only Cabernet Sauvignon. Come experience the Silver Oak Cellars Napa Valley winery in Oakville, CA to enjoy exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon wine tasting tours.

For the best Cabernet Sauvignon in the world, go to Silver Oak. Not only is their wine beautiful, the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. The food and wine pairing is an ideal way to learn about how food and wine interact with each other. The chef makes incredible food that makes you want to never leave.

Jim was our host and he made the experience extra special. The location was a bit more crowded than I expected but I can't blame the people who were there. The wine was great and the hosts were amazing.

Silver Oak - one of my old time favorites - but the prices are very high compared to similar quality wines. My 2006 cab is now $95 per bottle. I'm glad I drank it all at a much lower rate. Recommended for the rich. MeuterMedia

Silver Oak produces some of the best wine in the region and unlike other high-end places, you get to taste 3-4 wines. The people treat everyone like a king/queen and the property is out of this world, no detail missed.

If you only get to one winery in Napa be sure it is Silver Oak. If he's working be sure to ask for Deke - awesome guide and interesting and entertaining in his own right. This tour is informative, the wine is awesome, the price is lowest for its category and you get a Silver Oak Wine glass. One of... More

The wines produced at the Silver Oak Cellars winery are of very high quality, but also quite expensive. The wine tasting and the tour throughout the winery was very interesting. Highly recommended.

Top-quality wine tasting room experience. You certainly could take the tour of the winery but the tasting room is good enough. The ambience, the staff and of course the winds are all just stunning. We've been coming here since the 1980s and watched them evolve overtime. They have not missed a beat with their friendliness and the quality of their... More

We did the "The Silver Tour and Taste", touring the private tasting area and the wine making operations. Our guide was very informative and occasionally witty, as we learned about their process and some of what makes them unique, including their ownership of the cooperidge in MO where all of their barrels are made. We tasted current releases of both... More

I was extremely impressed with this winery! We traveled with another couple and Silver Oak was on their list of wineries they wanted to visit. Our friend made an appt for us and I had assumed he just scheduled a wine tasting. It was the last stop of our trip and the second stop for us that day. When we... More
