History

Sited on over 200 extraordinary acres of vineyard, gardens, and natural landscape in the Carneros Appellation of the Napa Valley, di Rosa originated as the shared vision of Rene and Veronica di Rosa , prolific collectors whose personal passion for art and adventuresome spirits fueled their support of art and artists. Their home and the famed vineyards around Winery Lake became the focal point not only for their life, but the development of the world class art collection that is now housed in three buildings, both contemporary and historic, as well as on the surrounding landscape.

Considered the most significant holding of Bay Area art in the world, di Rosa houses approximately 2000 works of art by more than 800 artists.

Most people come to Napa Valley for wine tasting, we came for Art tasting!! We took a two hour tour and couldn’t believe how amazing and unique the art collection was and we didn’t even see the whole thing. There was acres of land with lot’s of sculptures that is open to the members only once a year.
