Stags' Leap Winery

Located at 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. The original Stags' Leap Winery (established in 1893) 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, 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. We invite you to make a reservation and visit this magical place with its beautiful grounds and stylish wines, including the award-winning field blend, Ne Cede Malis, and opulent “The Leap” and “Audentia” Cabernet Sauvignons. We are open by appointment only and are unable to accommodate drop in guests due to traffic restrictions on our private road.

Private Estate Experience
$125-$150 per guest

Horace and Minnie Mizner Chase, the founders of Stags’ Leap Winery, were renowned for their lavish hospitality. Being at the epicenter of nineteenth-century San Francisco society during an era of great wealth, they hosted such important guests as the king and queen of Portugal. In their tradition of grand hospitality, we offer a signature seasonal Private Estate Experience (pricing varies) lasting 90-120 minutes.
