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.

Please note:

We are closed: Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day and close early on Thanksgiving Eve, Christmas Eve, and New Year's Eve.

Stags' Leap was absolutely beautiful! It was hard to find, but well worth the visit! I loved the "speakeasy" basement area! It was private and cozy! The wines are very delicious and my favorite was The Leap! Well worth the $100!! Loved being able to walk outside by the vineyards!

We visited quite a few wineries while visiting Napa, and our Stags' Leap tour and tasting was by far our favorite. Our host, Federico, was so knowledgeable, friendly and passionate about this amazing vineyard. He made the history of the amazing buildings and beautiful grounds incredibly interesting! So glad we went. Great experience!

Absolutely LOVED the tour & tasting from start to finish!! This was the BEST money we spent all weekend! The minute we walked in we received the best service and the wine was incredible. The entire tour was so fancy we were sure the wines were going to start at $200 a bottle and were pleasantly surprised to learn that they had a wide variety of ranges and wine types to cater to a variety of guests

My husband and I came to wine country for our honeymoon in February 2018. Stags' Leap was one of the last wineries on our trip. It was also one of the best. We did the tour and tasting at 10am. There was only one other couple on the tour so it was a great small atmosphere. Brian, our host, made us feel very welcome. You can tell he is truly passionate about his job. We will definitely be back!

The tour at Stags' Leap was one of the most interesting we've taken in Napa, as it wrapped in not only the wine education and tasting, but also the history of the property, which was fascinating. I loved the fact that we tasted as we toured the property, vs standing at a counter the whole time. Outstanding.

Brian Bock was our host for a private tasting of the Heritage Library Private Estate tasting and was beyond amazing. He truly personalized the experience for us, which made it incredibly special and magical. We will be back again!!!

Stags' Leap Winery where the apostrophe is always (to the) right, isn't named the top romantic winery in Napa for nothing. After a private tour in a history-filled house and most beautiful gardens, it easily is now my most favorite winery. My date who doesn't usually appreciate wine is still raving about the genuine, friendly hospitality. Go with a loved one - you'll thank me.

I loved the ambiance and the location of the winery, and our host was very well informed about its history and culture. Stags' Leap Winery is a welcome change from the typical Napa tasting room because tours are intimately sized. I loved tasting wines over 90 minutes as we toured the grounds rather than all at once. Plan a little extra time to find this winery, it is well off the beaten path.

The Stags' Leap experience was above and beyond what we expected. The property is exquisite. The tour through the property was never dull, as Brian was incredibly entertaining. Many winery experiences will leave you wanting at the bar but Stags' Leap will carry you through the estate, including the vineyard, with wine and allow you to enjoy the beauty of the property. The wine is amazing, too.

There was nothing particularly bad about our experience, it just was fairly mediocre. We weren't crazy about the wine, didn't feel like we learned about their winemaking, and expected a more refined tasting for the price. Details seemed messy...Our host had to leave us several times throughout the tour because the bottles that were supposed to be stocked at each location were empty.

The property was beautiful - Really enjoyable tour and the guide was really knowledgeable. I have just had better wine in the NAPA valley is all. Also, this exact Stags' Leap sells one of their vintages at Costco in Novato the Vintage at Costco is a 2014 and sells for $29.99 and The INvestor 2013 at the Vinyard sells for $58.00. Since the wine wasn't that great I think I'll just wait

You must know this is not the Stag's Leap Wine Cellar that has the SLV and Cask23. If that is what you are looking for this is not it. This is very confusing and unfortunate. The wines here are ok but not nearly as good as the other Stag's Leap. The place is interesting though
