Located in the very heart of the Stags Leap District, down a long, private road, lies the century-old 240-acre wine estate known as Stags' Leap: a place of natural beauty, storied buildings and gardens, a lively history, and a reputation for elegant wines. Established in 1893, Stags’ Leap Winery continues a proud winemaking heritage in the prestigious appellation that bears the winery name.
Framed by the dramatic palisades to the east, the estate is renowned for its landmark nineteenth-century stone winery and Victorian-era Manor House and is planted to 90 acres of vineyards- divided into 23 blocks that perfectly match each grape variety with its ideal soil type. As one of California’s earliest wine estates, its unique terroir, the 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.
