About Us

The oldest winery in Napa Valley, founded in 1861, is also home to California's first tasting room. Opened for public tastings in 1882 by Charles Krug, our tasting room has evolved into a world-class hospitality center, renowned for its exceptional wines, stunning design, and storied heritage.

Open daily, 10:30 am to 5 pm, Charles Krug Winery has been named one of the "Top 10 California Tasting Experiences" by Food & Wine Magazine. Winner of the 2015 Architecture and Landscape Award for Best of Wine Tourism, this is a must-see destination for anyone interested in the legacy of Napa Valley winemaking.

Visit our Cucina di Rosa Salumeria and Outdoor Pizza Kitchen, which pays tribute to our Italian heritage while engaging guests in the pleasure of food and wine. Try our Salumeria’s handcrafted cured meats and artisan cheeses or wood-fired pizzas enjoyed seasonally on our lawn.

From Prosciutto to Coppa, Pecorino to Taleggio, our handcrafted Italian cured meats and cheeses showcase our estate wines and our Italian heritage. Allow us to prepare a special selection of cured meats, cheeses or both. Pair with a flight of wines tableside or a glass of wine at our counter. Offered daily, 11 am to 4 pm.

Join us May through October when we fire up our Mugnaini wood-burning pizza oven outside our historic Redwood Cellar. Relax on our tree-lined lawn and enjoy one of our authentic Italian-style pizzas, made with herbs and vegetables from our estate garden and with selected meats from our Salumeria. Each pizza and charcuterie platter pairs perfectly with an array of Charles Krug wines. Offered out on the lawn Friday through Sunday, 11 am to 4 pm.
