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.

My husband and I recently visited Stags' Leap and took part in the wine tasting and estate tour. What a beautiful estate with so much history. Bonnie, our tour guide, was quiet informative and lively, creating a wonderful experience for the entire group. I would definitely recommend making a stop at this winery and it happens to be one of our favorite brands of wines.

If you are looking for a stuffy wine tour, then you have come to the right place. If you want to spend $65 somewhere else where they are fun and engaging, then I would suggest Cakebread or just about any other winery in the area. It's too bad the tour guide was so bad because the wines are actually quite good.

The views and history was more then I expected. loved the guided tour having a glass here and there. It was difficult to take any types of notes, in the end making hard to remember what you liked. When we did get seated the size/table placements caused my husband and I to have to sit across from each other making it very hard to talk about purchasing anything with out advertising the amount.

The Stags" Leap winery was beautiful to see and the Guide, Brian, was very good. I attended this tasting and visit knowing there would be about 10 other guests. Unfortunately, that always presents a problem with people that think they know more than they do and ask silly questions. I prefer private tastings which Stags' Leap does not offer. I will never go on another tasting that is not private.

The highlight of out Napa trip was Stags' Leap Winery and the Estate Tour. Loved every second of it! What makes it Extra Special is the Manor House history and how Stags' Leap Winery came to be what it is today. The wines we tasted included their best wines and every couple on the tour purchased wine. We had our most memorable lunch of our trip on the calm and picturesque Manor Porch.

It's important that this is the winery you really want to visit. I made the mistake of thinking this was, "Stag's Leap Wine Cellars," which is known for their S.L.V., Artemis and Cask 23. There is a lot of history to this winery and the wines were just okay and I may have been jaded because I was at the wrong place. The tour guide was not a good speaker so it felt longer than it was.

From the moment you drive up the tree-lined entrance to the magnificent grounds and manor house of Stags' Leap Winery we were in awe of the tranquil beauty. The history, majesty and views from this winery make this a combination like no other. It was one of our absolute favorite tours in Napa and yes the wine is pretty amazing as well. Don't go to the wrong "Stag's Leap" next door!!

Beautiful location and a winery with history which gives the tour merit for anyone visiting the valley. The tour/ tour guide was knowledgeable but definitely geared more towards the baby boomer crowd and not the cork dork types. I suppose I appreciate being told what Robert Parker scored their wines but felt like it was a missed opportunity to discuss the wines/pairings/etc and not a wine critic
