Owner description: 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.

“Excellent Tasting”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We visited Silver Oak in early April. We only did the tasting. Our server was very knowledgable and helpful without hovering. The tasting included 3 excellent tastes for $20 with complimentary Schott-Zweisel glasses. We even received an extra pour of our favorite, the Alexander Valley cab, of which we bought a bottle. It was very interesting to try cabs aged exclusively in American oak after tasting all of the French Oak wines in the valley. Highly recommend!

“Best Winery in Napa”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

We visited Silver Oak on the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend and had a great time on the tasting and tour. When you walk in the door you are handed a glass of Wine (Alexander Valley is much better than the Napa Valley) and had a great tour guide and drank some great wine, I did like that $10 of the tasting fee could go to purchase a bottle of wine (unfortunately you can only use one discount per bottle). I love this place and will return to the best winery in the area.

“Hope to Come Back to Take Their Tour”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

It was a wonderful experience. Silver Oak is one of our favorite cabernets. There is something fabulous about visiting the winery of one of your favorite wines. No appointment was necessary and the cost for a tasting was only $20 for 3 different cabs. All were delicious. The tasting even included a complimentary wine glass with "Silver Oak" etched into the glass. They opened earlier than several other wineries, 9 am, which made it convenient for us to make as our first stop.

As we walked up toward the wine room, we all stopped to smell the beautiful and large roses that lined either side of the pathway. They were imperial chryslers and absolutely delightful.

It was a wonderful experience. Hopefully we will come back one day to take the tour.

First stop on our winery tour that day. Private tour with great information/history of estate. Red wine drinkers only. Yet interesting and engaging regarding wine etc.

“Amazing group dinner at Silver Oak!”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

My husband's firm had a partner dinner at the Silver Oak winery while on their retreat last fall. I have to say it was nothing short of amazing! The large room where they hosted us had wine barrels in the background, and the food was incredible. All the while we were sipping on different varieties of Silver Oak wine! Seriously, one of the best dinners of all time in an unforgettable setting. Definitely highly recommend this location for a special event!
