Owners & Family
O’Brien Estate began as a romantic dream almost 30 years ago when we visited Napa Valley on our third date. We fell in love and Barb said “I dream of owning land in Napa Valley”.
Our mission is to both produce the finest wines possible from our own piece of heaven and to create a place for our guests to have the rare experience of visiting a self-contained estate with vineyards, winery, and owner’s home. Walk in our vineyards, touch our barrels and bottling line, sit in our backyard, and share our passion for the bottled poetry of wine.
We have 2 children, Emily and Mason. Emily is finishing her degree at Evergreen State College while she has started a granola bar company in Seattle called Mondo Bar. Mason graduated from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo with a degree in Agricultural Business and now works in the software industry in Santa Barbara.
Rounding out our family are our three winery cats: Motor, Hobbes, and Chicheron.
Is this heaven? For us it is, and we hope it is for you too.
Barb and Bart O'Brien
