What starts in the vineyard comes to fruition in the winery. Winemaker Elizabeth Vianna is deeply cognizant and intimately familiar with the estate's vineyards and she fully captures the estate's unique terroir through meticulous vineyard management and careful, artistically minimal winemaking principles. This “non-interventionist” style of winemaking allows the winemaker to fully utilize that which this wonderful and unique Stags Leap soil is capable of delivering. The end result offers wines that are pristine and authentic in terms of varietal character, accompanied by a velvety taste in the mouth and astounding softness, balance, and cohesion.
“Behind the Scenes” Tour and Barrel Tasting
11am daily / Limited to 8 guests / Approximately 1.5 hours
About: An in-depth experience perfectly suited for collectors and enthusiasts! You’ll be warmly welcomed by one of our senior wine educators. With glass in hand, we’ll tour the grounds of the estate, imparting the importance and impact of our unique setting and history, our diverse vineyards, and our extensive processes employed in crafting our celebrated wines. While in the cellars, we will sample wines directly from the barrels that house them as they continue to evolve and develop. We next move to a formal, seated tasting of the current releases of the wines tasted in the cellars. Select artisan cheeses accompany the tasting in one of our private tasting salons.
$85 per person / $70 per Wine Club Member (and up to 3 guests) Advance reservations required. Rates include tax.
