Stags Leap District Winegrowers Association

Clos Du Val

In 1970 American businessman John Goelet sent off French-born winemaker Bernard Portet with a passport and a mission to find new territory with the potential to produce world-class wines. Two years and five continents later Portet landed in California. Struck by the cool evenings and idyllic terrain of the then-undiscovered Stags Leap District, he proposed the area to Goelet, who acquired 150 acres of land and founded Clos Du Val, a "small estate of a small valley," in 1972. Portet's old-world approach to winemaking combined with Napa Valley fruit established Clos Du Val's tradition of limited-release, handcrafted estate-style wines of balance, complexity and elegance.
