1881 Napa Wine History Museum
In the heart of the Napa Valley stands a landmark historical Victorian home and the oldest continuously operating grocery store in California. Founded in 1881, this beloved general store served the visionary pioneers who first planted grapes in the valley. Today, the adjacent founder’s home at the junction of Oakville honors the rich history, legacy and heritage of this world-famous winegrowing region.
FINEST NAPA WINES
Amid views of iconic vineyards and landmarks of historical significance, the Oakville Wine Merchant at 1881 Napa is a destination to enjoy more than 50 wines by the glass from Napa's finest producers in a comfortable lounge setting. Wines include highly sought-after selections from Bond, Shafer, Dominus, Dalla Valle and more, as well as OGC Wines from Oakville Grocery and 1881 Napa.
NAPA VALLEY AMERICAN
The cherished Napa Valley landscape is planted to 47,000 acres of wine grapes and segmented into 16 distinct AVA’s, each lauded for their unique and diverse terroir. Ranging from cool, coastal influences to warmer temperatures, mountainous terrain to valley floor, clay soil to volcanic rock, the Napa Valley American Viticulture Areas are truly remarkable. 1881 Napa delights in producing appellation-designate bottlings derived from some of the most prestigious vineyards throughout these individual AVAs, providing guests with the opportunity to explore the full range of cabernet expressions throughout the region.
