The Story behind the Winery

Our Napa Valley winery in Oakville, CA is the home of the Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and the original site of Silver Oak Cellars. Our location, midway between the Silverado Trail and the town of Oakville, CA, provided the inspiration for the Silver Oak name.

A courtyard and fountain, anchored by our iconic water tower, provide the entrance to our timber-framed wine tasting room where visitors will find a large stone fireplace, the Glass House Library displaying wine vintages dating back to the 1970s, a Chai with oak barrels and a History Gallery with memorabilia from our original winery building. The interior of the wine tasting room and the exterior of the winery in Oakville, CA are wrapped in hand-quarried limestone with a chipped face, reclaimed from an 1800s flour mill in Coffeeville, Kansas. Come visit our Silver Oak Napa Valley winery today to enjoy any of the Silver Oak wine tasting tours in Oakville, CA and experience an exceptional Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

Summer Food & Wine Pairing

Twomey, Pinot Noir
Pork Tenderloin Tonatto

Crispy Green Bean, Petite Lettuces, Pickled Red Onion,
Black Olives, Cucumbers & Estero Gold Cheese

This summer salad is twist on a classical Italian dish known as vitello tonatto, (veal and tuna sauce). Instead of veal we hot smoke a pork-tenderloin, then chilled and slice it very thin. The meat is garnished with a salad and finished with a tuna sauce made from olive oil poached tuna, egg yolks, Dijon mustard and olive oil. The richness of the pork combined with the umami flavors of the tuna sauce works in harmony with the Pinot noir while the bright acidity and saltiness from the salad garnishes enhances the fruit flavors of the wine.

Twomey Merlot, Napa Valley
Lamb Tartare Crostini

Capers, Chives, Dijon, and Crème Fraiche

Niman Ranch Lamb loin are finely diced and season with chopped capers, chives and a touch of Dijon mustard, then served onto a crispy crostini toast with crème fraiche sauce. Lamb and Merlot classically have a special affinity to each other that complements one another’s style and aromatics. The Dijon brings the acid balance to enhance the fruit character in the wine while the crème fraiche softens the tannin and oak structure of the Merlot.

Silver Oak, Alexander Valley
Burrata Agnolotti & Foraged Mushrooms

Cherry Tomatoes and Bacon-Olive Oil Jus

The rich burrata cheese in the agnolotti pasta combined with the foraged mushrooms give weight to this dish to stand up to our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The Bacon-Olive-Oil Jus gives this dish an umami richness the has little bursts of sweet-acidity coming from the cherry tomatos.

Silver Oak, Napa Valley
Goat Gouda Cheese

This is a 12 month aged Goat-milk Gouda from Central Coast Creamery. It has high salinity content along with a balanced acid character, and an almond-nutty like aroma. Well Aged cheeses have a balance of protein, salt, fat, and acidity which make them a natural pairing to Cabernet Sauvignon.
