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.

Loved the wines at Silver Oak. My husband and I often split tastings and I appreciated that they poured a nice amount for both of us to get a good taste of the wine (they were not like other wineries that give TINY pours). Tasting room is spacious and the servers/wine educators were friendly and fun. Would love to visit... More

We opted to do a tasting at Silver Oak rather than a wine tour or a private tasting. The tasting itself was very easy. You go up to the counter, tell 'em which tasting you want to do (I think they had 2 options), they give you a wine glass (which you can take home btw) and you come back... More

Went with a group of 11. They were very accommodating and our guide was very helpful. Very good wine. Beautiful scenery surrounding the vineyard.

Silver Oak did a great job managing a large tour. It was fun from the start as you start tasting as you go - fun (and yummy). The tour guide was great and gave a good run down on the technicals and the history of the winery. I think this experience is a good one for first time visitors to... More

We stopped by the Silver Oak Cellars for wine tasting and buying some bottles. We planned on visiting Silver Oak before reaching Napa. Silver Oak only makes two Cabernet Sauvignon and they are good, very good. The facility is nice. We walked outside while doing our sampling. My recommendation to anyone visiting Napa is to do some research about which... More

Everything from the staff to the ambiance was amazing. A highlight was the bottle tree (below) that we are going to imitate next year. But, the reason this visit was so awesome wS the tasting! At $25 per, it isn't cheap - but it was a bargain. We had the 2012 Oakville Cab (absolutely incredible), the 2011 Napa Cab (very... More

We enjoy Silver Oak wine at home and at restaurants. We were looking forward to a stop at the tasting room but the entire experience was extremely disappointing. (We had visited another Silver Oak tasting room in 2012 and had a delightful experience and wanted to try this tasting room on this trip to Napa). The lady who greeted us... More

One of my favorite wines, good location and service and nice atmosphere. Was already decorated for the holidays. Didn't have any food and $20 gets you 3 pouring of cab unlike Opus wine $45 for 1 pour.

We came for the Cabernet, obviously;) The tasting is a bit more, but their pourings are more like double. So 3 glasses didn't feel that bad. We frankly liked every glass and that hardly happens. Worth it! Our sommelier was Thomas. He was very friendly, funny, welcoming and knowledgeable. The grounds are very nice and we stayed longer to eat... More

Had a relaxed and enjoyable tasting with Mary. Very knowledgeable about the wines. Tasted some 9 and 10 yr old wines in our flight that were wonderful. Overall great experience.
