Presenting Charles Krug's Cucina di Rosa Salumeria, now offering handcrafted salumi and artisan cheeses daily! Starting in July 2017, enjoy wood-fired pizza on our tree-lined lawn (Thursday through Mondays) from 11 to 4. Pair these Italian-inspired delicacies with a delicious glass of Charles Krug wine. The oldest winery in Napa Valley, Charles Krug recently renovated its historic Redwood Cellar, turning it into one of the region's most stunning Tasting Rooms. Named one of the "Top 10 California Tasting Experiences" by Food & Wine and winner of the 2015 Architecture and Landscape Award for Best of Wine Tourism, this is the winery that put Napa on the map. A must-see for anyone interested in the legacy of Napa Valley winemaking. We offer several tasting options daily, including barrel tastings, private tours, and exclusive tastings of our limited release wines. Walk-ins are welcome, or call to make an appointment.

Make a reservation, do the reserve tasting. You will not regret it. The grounds are beautiful, and the service is excellent! So much history in this building, and endless exceptional wine. This was by far our favorite experience in Napa.
