|Western skies at Obrien Estates, Yountville, CA.|
I have been to this winery dozens of times, my family has been wine members there for years and we just felt that this group had to experience the O'Briens personally. And personally is what we got. We were greeted by none other than Owner, Barb O'Brien and winemaker, David Yorgensen. They set up a casual tasting in the backyard of their adjoining residence. We tasted all of their popular labels and Barb read and then gave background the labels of each of the wines.
They allowed everyone the opportunity to walk through the vineyards, and just enjoy the afternoon and each other's company. It seems that everywhere we went on this trip seems to top the last place; not in a bad way, but like every place just made the trip that much more memorable. Every winery offered a unique experience, some were offered a white glove and crystal experience and others, like O'Brien offered a more relaxed atmosphere where you feel like you were in your family's backyard for a holiday. All the wineries outdid themselves, I could not have been more pleased.
O'Brien Estates, a tasting everyone will remember!
