About Stags' Leap Winery

Located at the very heart of the Stags Leap District, 7 miles north of Napa, lies the century-old wine estate known as Stags' Leap: a place of natural beauty, storied buildings and gardens, a lively history, and a reputation for elegant wines.

Read More

The original Stags' Leap Winery (established in 1893) continues a proud winemaking heritage in the prestigious appellation that bears the winery name. Framed by the dramatic palisades to the east, the 240-acre property is planted to 90 acres of vineyards and divided into 23 blocks that perfectly match each grape variety with its ideal soil type. Located off a long, private road, the property is renowned for its landmark nineteenth-century stone winery and Victorian-era Manor House. As one of California’s earliest wine estates, its unique terroir, ideal microclimate, and tradition of stewardship supports a classical standard of viticulture, land use, and winemaking that is relevant today as it was over a century ago. We invite you to make a reservation and visit this magical place with its beautiful grounds and stylish wines, including the award-winning field blend, Ne Cede Malis, and opulent “The Leap” and “Audentia” Cabernet Sauvignons. We are open by appointment only and are unable to accommodate drop in guests due to traffic restrictions on our private road.

we mixed up Stags' Leap Winery with the cellar and actually went there first. So we were a bit late, however that is our fault. the Stags' Leap Winery experience was amazing and it was great to learn about the history while drinking amazing wine. I would definitely come back with my husband and family.

Was very disappointed that the underground cellar was going through construction, therefore we were not able to see it. We did not see this information represented on the website prior to purchasing tickets. We should not have been charged the full $70 since we didn't get the full tour. My tour guide also dropped a bottle of wine next to me and it spilled on my shoes & legs.

My girlfriends and I booked a private wine tour for our BFF's birthday; upon arrival we were greeted by Bonnie who was very knowledgeable about the property and family history also very well versed on her wines and wine selection. I would recommend this tour to everyone, the property though a bit hard to find is secluded and beautiful. You get a taste of history and a little tipsy!! Book now!!

Our tour was most enjoyable, loved the historical background of the estate and the Stags' Leap name. Wine was excellent. A bite of food would have been a nice addition, even some olives and dried fruit, just a little something to absorb some of the wine, and for the price per person, 3 small crackers appeared a bit stingy. Overall, had a great time!

This is my new favourite wine experience ever. A beautiful and special place with fascinating stories. I was captivated by the experience - as soon as I arrived I was greeted and offered chardonnay by the fire, then I was guided around the property in an interactive tasting, exploring the house, prohibition speakeasy, sensory garden, breathtaking views and impeccably decorated property.

The tasting was fabulous as are all Stags Leap wines...a cut above. Well worth the drive and the morning to be at one of Napa's premier wineries.

Tour guide was too busy talking about the property and trying to 'sell', rather than talk about the wines. Took away from the entire wine tasting experience. Definitely not worth the price. Too much other competition in the area that is more worthwhile.

The Leap is one of our favorites. We buy a bottle of that everytime we visit. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We will be back.

What we didn't know is that there are two Stag's Leaps - one is Winery, one is Wine Cellars. We made reservations at the one we did not intend to go to, but in the end, we think it was a good mistake. Bonnie gave us a wonderful private tour of the home and a good history of the Napa Valley, as well as guided us through a nice tasting flight.

I rarely drink domestic Merlot. However, their estate Merlot is phenomenal! Its complexity, balance and elegance is world class!
