A Culinary Collaboration of Stag-sized Proportions

The culture of Napa Valley is based on collaboration and it’s what makes this place so special. We are neighbors and friends who share ideas, knowledge, values, grapes, and even winery equipment. In the spirit of collaboration, Quixote, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, Pine Ridge and Steltzner Vineyards are coming together to create a culinary feast prepared by our very own winery chefs. Quixote Chef Aaron LeRoi, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Chef Travis Westrope, Pine Ridge Chef Susan Lassalette and Steltzner Vineyards Chef Gina Robertson will each prepare one course, expertly paired with the soft and graceful wines of the Stags Leap District.

The festivities will begin with valet parking and a reception at Quixote's famous Puddle House with stunning views set at the base of the majestic Stags Leap Cliffs. Guests will then be escorted to the surreal venue that is Quixote Winery, where dinner will be served, masterfully prepared by each of the acclaimed winery chefs. Guests will get to know each of the winemakers over dinner while they talk about their winemaking style and vineyards. You will leave with a true understanding of what makes the Stags Leap District such an incredible place for fine wine!
