Notable for being the winery that won the Cabernet Sauvignon competition in the 1976 Judgment of Paris, Stags’ Leap was founded in 1970 on Napa Valley's eastern side. The 240-acre estate features 90 acres of vineyards among the watershed of the Stags Leap Palisades where wine grapes have grown continuously since the 1880s. Considered one of California’s earliest wine estates, Stags’ Leap is a place of natural beauty, storied buildings and gardens, a lively history, and a reputation for elegant wines showing finesse and intensity.
This sumptuous culinary experience will feature a delightful 4-course menu paired with exclusive selection of reds and whites from one of Napa Valley’s finest wine making estates that you won't want to miss!
