Stag's Leap Wine Cellars

(707) 944-2020 Napa, CA 94558
United States

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars is considered one of Napa Valley's first-growths. We were founded by Warren Winiarski and his family in 1970 and are best known for our estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignons — CASK 23, S.L.V., and FAY. Over the years, our wines have become some of the most highly regarded and collected wines worldwide. They are fashioned to express classic elegance, structure, and ageability, and to reflect the place in which they are grown. n May 24, 1976, a wine tasting took place in Paris that changed the world’s view of California wines forever. The tasting was the brainchild of Steven Spurrier, an English wine merchant who owned an innovative wine shop and adjacent wine school in the center of Paris. Located near the offices of IBM, many of the students at L’Academie du Vin were Americans who worked in France and were anxious to learn more about wine. Spurrier was intrigued by some of the California Cabernets and Chardonnays his students brought by the shop. Curious Read more »

  • We've had a relationship with wine for several millennia and counting. This relationship has been documented in a number of ways, but so much has been lost to the ravages of time. Gaps in history leave wine culture open to interpretation, but with the dawn of modern media things have changed. Whether we like it or not, modern media will help us ... Read More

  • The only one I've been lucky enough to have enjoyed was the '82 Petrus in the early 90's - a gift for our successful move to Wisconsin.  I really don't think the giver knew what he was doing, but he'd been out to Stag's Leap Wine Cellars with me and we went on the Silverado Trail together for a long weekend.So I didn't say anything until we pour...

  • Removed from a professional's wine storage facility.  As the Stag's Leap guys know, apostrophes and possessives can make a very big difference. Actually, GdPs cellars are, he tells me, both fully underground and stay cool all summer.  I've got a pretty good idea where each one is.  He stored a few bottles that I shipped to NY for a tasting, and ...

  • EMARK - I'd been drinking wine for 5-6 years by then so it wasn't immediate.  Wines weren't what they are now.  Like you things accelerated rapidly, 2 years later I was at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars learning the effects of the Judgement of Paris from WW himself.  I bought my 1st  Cask 123 that year.It will be interesting to read the other replies....

  • I remember mine completely, just  like it was yesterday, all except for the producer which I think was Tyrrell, but after 40+ yrs the name has faded.  What remains vivid is the experience.  The place was in Freemantle, just outside Perth, in 1976.  Hungry for a good meal, myself and 2 friends chanced upon this spot.  It was owned by a WW2 refuge...

Goyt to talk with him on 2 or 3 different occasions. His memories of the "Judgement of Paris"  sti... Read More

  • 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
