The Silverado Trail is a favorite on our Napa Valley group wine tours, both for its beauty – think rolling hillsides covered in vineyards – and for the gracious hospitality of the renowned estates that call it home.
The two-lane Trail is a great way to experience Napa Valley, and to see some of its most breathtaking views. Below, we’ve hand-picked some of our most popular stops for you to preview. Join Dynamic Wine Tours today on a virtual tour of top Silverado Trail wineries perfect for your Napa Valley group wine tour!
Miner Family Winery
7850 Silverado Trail
Oakville, CA 94562
Miner is a must-see for Napa Valley group wine tours interested in experiencing a wine cave! The group cave tour and tasting includes a stroll through the caves, tasting from a wine barrel, and of course, a flight of Miner Family Wines. But that’s not the only reason to visit – Miner’s extensive portfolio is a red wine lover’s dream! It includes both Bordeaux varieties and Rhone grapes (like Grenache and Syrah), as well as Pinot Noir, and Spanish and Italian varieties like Tempranillo and Sangiovese. But white-wine drinkers, don’t despair: the wild yeast Chardonnay is so delicious, it’s been served at the White House!
6320 Silverado Trail
Napa, CA 94558
Robert Sinskey’s story is not the one you’ll typically hear in wine country. He was earning a Master’s Degree in art and design when his father, newly farming vineyards, called him home to help with the family business. Within a week, Sinskey says he knew it was his life’s calling. Today, his property is fully biodynamic, utilizing every element of the natural environment to produce sustainable, environmentally-friendly wine. And what wine it is! Try both Cabernets and Pinots on any number of tasting experiences – a flight of wines, or a tour of the property, or even a five-course tasting meal with wine pairings!
Chimney Rock Vineyards
5350 Silverado Trail
Napa, CA 94558
Meticulous care of the soil and vineyards is at the heart of Chimney Rock’s winemaking philosophy. And they have the vines to do it – 28 distinct vineyard blocks on their estate properties! The best part is, Chimney Rock offers a unique tour of their vineyards, where you can taste the wine amid the vines it comes from. Of course, more traditional tastings are available too, in their gorgeous tasting salon and patio. Their wine portfolio’s focus on specific parts of the property is a thorough (and delicious) education for your Napa Valley group wine tour!
Reynolds Family Winery
3266 Silverado Trail
Napa, CA 94558
Since its beginning, the Reynolds Family Winery has looked to the wild mustard of Napa Valley, so often seen growing between vines in the spring, as inspiration: “From small things, big things grow.” Steve Reynolds and his wife Suzie started their winery on a former chicken farm over twenty years ago, leaving a successful dental practice behind. Now, Reynolds produces about 7,000 cases of wine a year—enough to satisfy their customers without compromising the integrity of their winemaking philosophy. Let us bring your Napa Valley group wine tour to their terrace to try these proudly American wines – while enjoying quite a view.
