Stags Leap District Winegrowers Association

Quixote Winery

Quixote is a boutique gem in the Stags Leap District, producing just 2,000 cases annually. Our small production of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah is only found at our winery and at some of the Napa Valley’s top restaurants and hotels around the world.

The legacy of Quixote and its sought-after wines are above all, how our Winemaking chief Philippe Melka and Estate Winemaker B.R. Smith looks to stay true to the vineyard and let the wines express the true meaning of our Stags Leap Appellation terroir. Our unique vineyard has four distinct soil types and both east and west facing slopes giving us wines of great balance and complexity.Our grapes are both picked and sorted by hand from small picking bins instead of large 1/2 tons bins that can crush the grapes under their own weight. Any grapes with flaws are discarded to ensure the best quality and flavors.

In 1989, Carl Doumani discovered the work of Friedensreich Hundertwasser, a Viennese painter, architect, ecologist and philosopher. Believing that the wine world had transformed a beverage of consummate pleasure into an absurdly serious pursuit, he commissioned Hundertwasser to design a winery to combat these notions. Noted for his extensive work in Austria and in his second home, New Zealand. Hundertwasser's architectural philosophy was devoted to elevating man's sense of himself . Our winery is the only building designed and built by Hundertwasser in the the Americas, including the United States, Central and South America.
