Heitz Wine Cellars inhabits a pristine valley in the eastern hills of St. Helena known to the locals as Spring Valley. In 1964, Joe and Alice Heitz acquired this 160-acre ranch and winery to accommodate their burgeoning family business.

They have each been integral to the success of the family business since the 1970s, helping to build the worldwide reputation for Heitz Cellars --- a name that has become synonymous with luxury in the world of winemaking.

  • I assume you know, Al, that Stags' Leap Winery is not the same as Stag's Leap Wine Cellars. The latter created the reputation for the name and area, while the former has mostly ridden on its coat tails due to the extremely similar names. SL Wine Cellars couldn't ask them to give up the name because the initial SL Winery farm with some grapes on ... Read More
