Overview
More
Turnbull produces exceptional quality Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, dirt to bottle, from our 100% estate grown vineyards in Oakville and the Napa Valley. We are known for our small production bottlings, most only available exclusively at the winery. We are a hidden gem, an authentic and approachable winery experience where you can taste our honest and true wines at their source. We offer private tastings by prior appointment, and gallery tastings open to the public seven days a week. We believe in the opportunity to pause, explore, and discover something new every day, and for us, wine should be no exception. Other highlights: Pairing Garden - Planted with edible produce and flowers that offer perfect pairings with our wines, this is also a great spot to relax with friends in front of the fire and taste wines. Photography Gallery - Turnbull has one of the largest private black and white photography collections, and twice yearly we curate a show in our Gallery Tasting Room, featuring a plethora of famous artists, including such notables as Berenice Abbott, Ansel Adams, Jock Sturges, Dorothea Lange, Herb Ritts and more. History Established in 1979 at the original estate site where the winery is today, Turnbull has been rooted in the culture and history of the Napa Valley for more than 35 years. We are a small, family-owned, multi-generation business building on a legacy.

Stopped here on our way to a scheduled tasting. Wish we had more time to explore the grounds more. The win was excellent. The host was great. The room is filled with original Ansel Adams prints, loved it.

Good list of tasting flight, not too crowded. Got indoor, outdoor or private tour to choose from. We arrived around 11am, not as many ppl as i expected. Pretty nice outdoor environment. By the time we left, more ppl showed up. Will stop by again.

This place never disappoints. The decor is beautiful, and the massive picture window behind the bar give you a gorgeous view of their back garden area and the mountain. The wines are always fabulous, esp their reds of course. Just go. You won't be disappointed.

Loved the wines. Gardens are beautiful. Highly recommend a tasting at this winery! We were never rushed and we were able to sit outside enjoy our tasting there! Really liked the variety of wines offered on the tasting menu.
