Watch Our Cabernet Grow:
Meet Us at the Fence

For over six decades Cabernet Sauvignon has been growing in the Stags Leap District. With our cool nights and warm days weather, and our combination of loam and volcanic soils, the SLD appellation is perfectly suited for cabernet to thrive. And thrive we have! While the iconic appellation's reputation was built on the backs of our early pioneers, the region continues to leap into the future with new farming techniques, sustainable practices and engaged stewardship.

Meet Us at the Fence brings two vintners/winemakers from contiguous properties together virtually over the growing season in Napa Valley's smallest sub-appellation for an intimate inside look at what's happening in our vineyards at a given point in time and how our grapes will ultimately yield the famed, richly textured, soft tannin, hand-crafted bottles of cabernet sauvignon coveted around the globe.
