A visit to Silenus Winery introduces guests to our own Silenus Estate wines, as well as the wines crafted at our production facility by our circle of boutique Napa Valley vintners. We offer extremely small-batch, premium wines, rarely found outside of the Napa Valley.
A tasting lasts approximately one hour and includes a flight of six wines. Our menu rotates often, making each tasting experience unique.
Our modern tasting room offers a relaxed and comfortable setting in which to taste, with floor to ceiling windows that highlight the view to our estate vineyards as well as the view into our impressive barrel room. Tastings are available with a variety of options for our visitors including outdoors on our patio and sit down tastings in our indoor glass private tasting room.
Silenus’ “Eat Like a Local” picnic program is available with any reservation. Bring your own food and we can supply you with a beautiful setting, a picnic basket, utensils, wine glasses and everything you need to enjoy an afternoon picnic under the beautiful oak trees. Complimentary use of our bocce ball court is included.
Our staff has put together a list of their favorite local “to go” delis and restaurants many of which are old Napa institutions only known by locals. Silenus believes in supporting many of these small family owned business and uses their services for many of their catering events. All recommendations are within a 5 mile radius of our winery and the guest is responsible for ordering and picking up their food items
