Stags Leap Wine Cellars

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. The four largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco. California is also the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars is a private Napa Valley estate that has been owned by my family since they established the winery in 1972 in what is now known as the Stags Leap District. They use the golden rectangle approach to winemaking, balancing opposing elements to create wines that are both dynamic and harmonious, and embody the classical ideals that define the world's greatest wines.
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars was known only in the Napa Valley but they are now famous in 1976 Paris Tasting, when Winiarski's 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon, the first wine produced at the new winery, bested four top-ranked Bordeaux entries, including first-growths Chateau Mouton-Rothschild and Chateau Haut-Brion. The tasting landed Stag's Leap Wine Cellars squarely among the ranks of the world's most noteworthy Cabernet producers and placed Winiarski among the ranks of world's most respected winemakers. It also fundamentally transformed how Californian wines were viewed worldwide.
Stag's Leap wine is known for fine quality and exceptional value, Hawk Crest wines have been handcrafted in the Napa Valley by Stag's Leap Wine Cellars since 1974. Hawk Crest consistently delivers distinctive, balanced and approachable wines that are ready to enjoy upon release and will continue to improve with age. Hawk Crest is the companion brand or house wine of Stag's Leap Wine Cellars.

The goal of Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Winery‘s winemaking program is to create wines of uncompromising quality with optimum flavor and aromatic components that reflect the unique characteristics of the vineyards from which they come.
