Napa Valley & Sonoma Wine Tasting Tours


Silverado Vineyards wine tasting roomRon and Diane Miller bought vineyard land in the Stag’s Leap District in the early 1970s with the intention of selling their excellent grapes to other wineries.
They did so for a few years, but eventually decided to make their own wine. In 1981 they set about fulfilling this dream, building a winery and planning their first vintage.

The elegant Mediterranean-style stone and redwood winery rests on a knoll above the Silverado Trail, barely visible from the road.
At the winery, be sure to enjoy its beautiful, flower-filled gardens, courtyard, and fountain. Inside you’ll delight over the barrel room and large tasting room with Napa Valley and Silverado Trail views through huge windows.
