Stags Leap District Wine Tours
Grapes were planted in the area that became Stag’s Leap District as early as the 1870’s. It became the first appellation to be designated an Ameridan Viticultural Area (AVA) based on it’s terrior (complete natural environment: soil, topography and climate).
Known for its Cabernet Sauvignon, Stag’s Leap District is home to twenty different wineries, among the most notable are Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, Clos Du Val, Hartwell and Shafer.
A FEW GREAT WINERIES IN STAGS LEAP DISTRICT
Hartwell Vineyards 5795 Silverado Trail, Napa, CA 94558 (707) 255-4269
Using fruit grown entirely on the Hartwell Estate, our wines are meticulously handcrafted by our winemaker Benoit Touquette. “Grow the best grapes, make the best wine” has been our motto since the inception of the winery and Benoit channels this philosophy into each bottle of wine that is made here at the winery.
With production approximately 3,000 total cases per year, we produce only what our estate can provide and allows us to specialize in Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. We are proud to call the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley home and we invite you to try the wines from our very special slice of paradise here on Wappo Hill.
Stag’s Leap 6150 Silverado Trl, Napa, CA 94558 (800) 395-2441
Stags’ Leap Winery is truly a hidden gem in the highly acclaimed Stags Leap District. Located off a long, private road, our nineteenth-century stone winery and Victoria era manor house are nestled against the Stags Leap Palisades east of the Silverado Trail. We invite you to make a reservation and visit this magical place with its beautiful gardens and stylish wines including “The Leap” Cabernet Sauvignon and rich, red blends.
Taylor Family 5991 Silverado Trail, Napa, CA 94558 (707) 255-3593
We believe in celebrating both the finer things in life and its simple pleasures. Family dinners and big celebrations. New recipes and tried-and-true favorites. An old dog on the porch. Small children keeping the screen door in constant motion. Filet Mignon. Homemade ice cream. Dancing. Cheering on our favorite team—although we disagree on which team that is. Sharing a good story—the taller, the better.
For more than 30 years, our family has grown grapes here in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley, and made its own wines for 10 of those years. We view each bottle of our wine as an element that brings people together to share life’s celebrations, the once in a lifetime as well as the everyday.
