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.

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 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.

You should make it very clear when people are booking that you are not Stags' Leap Cellars. Almost our entire group was at the wrong place unintentionally. The cost for this tour was not nearly worth the time or the wine.

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.

We loved it there! We had a great experience with Federico, who was clearly well-versed in the history of the place and spent two entire hours walking us through the property and discussing everything from the property's surprising history as a business to the nature of each acre of grapes. Impressive!

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

Outstanding! If you want to get an in depth history of the Napa Valley from the 1800's this is the place to go. The tour was one of the best we have had - and we have had a home in the valley since 1986. The wine tasting was exceptional - definitely do the Estate tour and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and garden.

While I am not a wine drinker (huh?), I brought my wife (and brother-in-law) here as a surprise for their birthdays. My wife and I are re-watching Falcon Crest from the 80's and this was the house of Chase Gioberti. The grounds are beautiful, the guides very knowledgeable, and according to my wife and BiL, the wines are excellent. They especially loved one of the chardonnays and the Malbec. Go!

We walked the property then sat for a tasting on the beautiful porch overlooking Stags Leap vineyards. Really can't get much better than that. We loved the wines and bought some to take home to enjoy and relish the memories.

We were a little nervous at first to be in a group with others we didn't know, but they were great and she was very friendly and laid back and helped the group get to know each other more. She even gave us a few extra tastings which she did not have to do. Would definitely do it again!!!
