Founded in 1893, Stags’ Leap Winery has a long tradition of growing superior grapes in the Napa Valley. Located in the Stags’ Leap District, founding Chase family named their country estate after the Stags Leap Palisades which is the background of the winery and also contributes to the winery’s fertile soil. Wine maker, Christophe Paubert relies on the fruit itself and the conditions of each and every harvest in creating delicious and full-bodied wines.
