This is the oldest winery in Napa with their first vintage dating back to 1861. You can literally taste the history of Charles Krug walking up to the property. Entering its tasting room, you’ll be blown away by the interior. It’s classy design is comforting and will make you want to hang out at all day.
You’ll definitely want to partake in their historic tour when you get there. This is because you get to learn all about the valley. You also get to enjoy a phenomenal barrel tasting that you won’t want to miss.
Regardless, we recommend coming to this place during lunch hours. This is because they have a wonderful salumeria (aka a delicatessen) the Cucina Di Rosa. It offers amazing salamis and they even cook up woodfired pizzas every Thursday through Monday. Their outdoor patio also is a great place to relax and enjoy their wine.
Charles Krug is quite unique in the fact that their long history lets them bypass many of Napa Valley’s rules. This allows them to host weddings, parties and other fun activities without having to worry about permits. This is also why the Napa Valley Film Festival is hosts screening here along with other great events. Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date on all the fun happenings here.
When it comes to the wine you can’t go wrong. They are world-renown for their Cabs— including their flagship Vintage Select Cab which is extremely limited and has been made continually since 1943. Beyond this they are well known for their Sauv Blanc, Merlot, Malbec, and their Bordeaux blends. Overall, this winery is the perfect mix of both old and new and is highly recommended for anyone visiting Napa.
