Nestled in the hills on the Northwest side of the Stags Leap District, Silverado Vineyards has become an iconic estate and home to some of Napa Valley's most-recognized wines for almost forty years. Established in 1981, by Ron and Diane Miller and her mother, Lillian Disney, the winery was named in honor of the Silverado Vineyard. Today, Silverado sustainably farms 360 acres across six estate vineyards in five sub appellations of Napa Valley.
The Silverado vineyard was first planted to vine in 1884. In 1968, it became the fourth planted to Cabernet Sauvignon in the Stags Leap District. Over the next two decades, through meticulous field selection, an entirely new clone of Cabernet Sauvignon emerged here. The vines had adapted to Silverado Vineyard's steep, shale soils to produce fruit with the character and structure for which the Stags Leap District came to be known. The University of California, Davis designated this unique vine as the Disney-Silverado Heritage Clone. It is one of only three Cabernet Sauvignons to attain this status — and the only one from Stags Leap District. Each year, Silverado honors this select clone with SOLO.
