Exclusive Friday Dinners

Friday Dinners

Hosted at Baldacci Family Vineyards with Shafer Vineyards, Steltzner Vineyards and Taylor Family Vineyards

Family Style at the Red Barn

V2V is all about full access to the renowned Stags Leap vintners and our dinner features the owners of four family owned, limited production wineries in the district: Baldacci Family Vineyards, Shafer Vineyards, Steltzner Vineyards and Taylor Family Vineyards. Each family has successfully passed the baton on to the next generation and the wines reflect both the history and the passion for the future of the Stags Leap District.

Our historic Red Barn, with its rustic charm and vines of the western hills, inspires nostalgia for the quiet pace of our agricultural lifestyle. Chef Pete Coleman has created a menu to match our collective wines with farm-to-table cuisine that is locally grown. Each course is lovingly paired with a cherished vintage from the cellar to bring forth storytelling from each of the winery owners and tales from past harvests. We look forward to celebrating another glorious Napa Valley evening with you.
