Andretti Winery - Napa Valley


Andretti Winery, Napa Valley







Andretti Winery is well known in Napa Valley in part because of Mario Andretti, the famous Indy 500 racecar driver as well as the craft of their Italian style wine making process.

The Andretti winery is a true treat on The Wine Country Tour Shuttle. A great experience awaits you from the moment you drive up to the Italian villa winery to when you leave with more bottles of wine then you thought you needed. Along with producing some of the finest wines of the Napa Valley, Andretti also has one of the most scenic grounds that doubles as our tasting room.

Andretti Winery was established in 1996 and takes its inspiration from the distinguished career of its namesake and founder, Mario Andretti, widely regarded as the greatest race car driver of all time. When Mario retired after nearly five decades of competition, a commemorative wine was produced in his honor in 1994. That event sparked an interest in owning a winery. To accomplish this goal he teamed up with his former associate, Joseph E. Antonini, who as President, Chairman and CEO of Kmart, was one of Mario's major sponsors.


During this winery stop, there is a $10 tasting fee that includes 4 different wine tastes.
