Quixote Winery

Quixote Winery is a boutique gem in the Stags Leap District, specializing in estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah. Producing just 3,000 cases annually, our small production wines can be found at our winery and at some of the top restaurants and hotels around the world.

Staying true to the vineyard, Winemakers Robert Smith and Philippe Melka let the wines express the true meaning of our Stags Leap Appellation terroir. Our unique estate vineyard has four distinct soil types with both east and west facing slopes, giving us wines of great balance and complexity. Our grapes are picked by hand into small picking bins and then sorted using an optical sorter to discard any grapes with flaws, ensuring the best quality and flavors. Ultimately, the legacy that is Quixote begins in the vineyards.

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 Americas, including the United States, Central and South America.
