Stags Leap District Winegrowers Association

Stags Leap District

30th Anniversary Weekend

at Vineyard to Vintner

Celebrating 30 years of our AVA | April 26-28, 2019

An iconic American appellation. Legendary history. Vibrant future. Distinctive cabernet. Napa's neighborhood for world class wines. The weekend shares the best we have for an unparalleled experience. Owners and winemakers. Historic wineries, glorious vineyards and billowing Palisades. Join us in celebrating 30 years of our American Viticultural Area.

To honor our 30th Anniversary, the Stags Leap District Winegrowers will donate $50 of each ticket purchased to the UC Davis Nathan Fay Graduate Fellowship Fund. Each year a student is awarded this coveted scholarship for their studies and research in the School of Enology and Viticulture. The Association established this endowment in 2000 as a tribute to District pioneer Nathan Fay. It was his determined belief that Cabernet was ideally suited for this region, and Fay planted the first Cabernet vines in 1961 in what is now Stags Leap District. It is in the spirit of gratitude and ongoing learning that we aim to match our initial endowment of $10,000 as we welcome guests to this special Stags Leap District Anniversary Weekend.
