About Us

Freemark Abbey's history dates back to 1886, when a pioneering young woman named Josephine Tychson founded one of Napa Valley's original 13 wineries in St Helena. The property was renamed Freemark Abbey in 1939, after it was purchased by Charles Freeman, Markquand Foster, and Albert "Abbey" Ahern. In 1967 a group of Napa Valley grape growers formed a partnership to purchase the winery. Freemark Abbey quickly gained a reputation as a valley leader in quality, focusing on exceptional fruit sources to create legendary Cabernet Sauvignon. Today Freemark Abbey produces distinct single-vineyard wines from two of Napa Valley's most impressive and unique vineyards in the Rutherford appellation - Bosche and Sycamore Cabernet Sauvignon.

The winery is currently offering three distinct experiences:
The Decades Tasting

Tasting Experience

One of Napa Valley’s original wineries, Freemark Abbey is a must-visit destination for experiencing California’s first American Viticultural Area and its world-renowned wines. Our historic estate is located 20 miles north of the town of Napa, on the east side of Highway 29, between St. Helena and Calistoga. The property underwent a major restoration in 2016 to preserve the century-old stone building while introducing modern updates. We invite you to immerse yourself in Napa Valley history while you luxuriate over a tasting of our elegant and age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.


Unique Features

Freemark Abbey's historic stone cellar, completed in 1906, is a fairly rare example of St Helena's second phase of tufa stone architecture. All of the stones came from a local quarry on Glass Mountain.
