Silver Oak Cellars

915 Oakville Cross Rd Oakville, CA 94562

Oakville Cabernet Winery

Family-owned for 50 years, Silver Oak produces Cabernets aged exclusively in American oak. Its exceptional, food-friendly wines are both drinkable upon release and worthy of cellaring for decades to come. Ray Duncan founded Silver Oak with Justin Meyer in 1972.  It’s currently owned and operated by Ray’s sons, David and Tim.  They have a commitment to innovative and sustainable viticulture practices across its vineyard properties, winemaking facilities, tasting rooms and cooperage. In addition to acquiring OVID Napa Valley in 2017, the Duncan family also founded Twomey Cellars in 1999 and Timeless Napa Valley in 2020.

Visit our Oakville Winery

Silver Oak was founded in 1972, designed with a timeless Napa Valley identity.  The Oakville winery is located between Highway 29 and Silverado Trail. Step inside and visitors discover our glasshouse library displaying library vintages dating back to the 1970s, American oak barrel chai and history gallery. The winery is wrapped in hand-quarried limestone with a chipped face reclaimed from an 1800s flour mill in Coffeyville, Kansas.

We offer a variety of special tastings, all of which include a complimentary Silver Oak wine glass. All tastings are by reservation only and can be booked online.

Continuous Improvement

“We have yet to make our best bottle of wine,” or the idea that our best wines are still ahead of us, is a founding philosophy that still guides us to this day 

We farm more than 400 acres of vines in Napa Valley and Alexander Valley with a leading-edge approach toward farming and viticulture, and the softest possible impact on natural resources and the environment.  

 Since 2014, Napa Valley native Nate Weis has overseen all grapegrowing and winemaking operations at Silver Oak. Nate worked side-by-side with his predecessor Daniel Baron, just as Daniel worked with Justin Meyer before his retirement. These overlapping tenures ensure consistency and quality control, as well as the inherent wisdom that our best wines are still ahead of us.
