Owned by former champion race car driver Mario Andretti, Andretti Winery is a showcase for the owner's love and appreciation for fine, food-friendly wines. Together with winemaker Bob Pepi, Andretti has produced outstanding wines, with a focus on wines that pair well with food.
The winery itself resembles a Tuscan-style villa, with bright yellowish orange structures, fountains, and beautiful gardens surrounding the primary tasting area. The relaxed tasting room is shrine to Andretti, with racing photos and assorted memorabilia. Pull a seat up at the L-shaped bar and taste the latest vintages.
Andretti Winery produces wines from some of the best vineyards in California, including such flavorful reds as Cabernet Savignon, Syrah, Merlot, Sangiovese, and Pinot Noir. White vintages include Savignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, and Chardonnay. The winery also produces a variety of special wines, as well.

My daughter and I took this tour the first weekend in November. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We stopped at 4 wineries, which was sufficient. The tour guide shared a lot of knowledge on our trip over - loved the story of how wine was actually "discovered". It was nice to take the ferry back to avoid the traffic and view different scenery. I would advise sitting on the righthand side of the bus (when looking at the driver) I think we had superior views compared to the lefthand side.

Andretti Winery is located in Napa's Oak Knoll District, which lies between Highway 29 and Silverado Trail. From either route, take Oak Knoll Road to Big Ranch Road. Head south on Big Ranch Road; the winery will be on your left. Andretti Winery is a 15-minute drive from Napa.
