Opus One Winery is a winery in Oakville, California, United States. The wine was called napamedoc until 1982 when it was named Opus One. The winery was founded as a joint venture between Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Château Mouton Rothschild and Robert Mondavi to create a single Bordeaux style blend based upon Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It is located across State Route 29 from the Robert Mondavi Winery. The creation of this winery venture in 1980 was big news in the wine industry; de Rothschild's involvement added an air of respectability to the burgeoning Napa wine region. The first vintage, 1979 was released in 1984 at the same time as the 1980 vintage. For a while it was the most expensive Californian wine, and to date still ranks among the most expensive red wines produced in the Napa Valley, with the 2014 vintage retailing for $325 per bottle. In 1989 a new winery was built just down the road, the first vintage from the new winery was from 1991 and was released in 1994.Make Opus One Winery a centerpiece of your Oakville vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Oakville trip itinerary maker website.

Words can’t describe how awesome this place is. We were also 30mins late thanks to some horrible construction traffic- and they proceeded to let us continue with our tasting and treated us as though nothing happened. This is the level of service you would expect from Opus One. Thank you so much!
Prior reservation is needed for wine testing. Otherwise, purchasing the wine is always welcomed. The facility look expensive so as the wine 🍷 Staffs are helpful. But those under 21 are not allowed into the premises. The gate in front remains close at all time. In order to have the gate open, wait until the other car come out or call the number shown in front of the gate and ask the staff to open it.
