In 1981, Ron and Diane Miller established Silverado Vineyards in the heart of Stags Leap District. They had purchased the vineyard several years earlier from Harry See who identified and propagated a special field selection of Cabernet which UC Davis has designated as a "Heritage" clone, one of only three Cabernets in California to be given this distinction.
Over the years Silverado Vineyards expanded to include six distinctive vineyards in the Napa Valley and Carneros. The beautiful fruit from these ranches is the exclusive source of Silverado Vineyards' Estate and Single Vineyard wines. 100% of the estate is sustainably farmed, 15% is farmed organically, 70% is Certified Napa Green, and 50% is preserved in the Land Trust exclusively for open space and agricultural use. 25% of the winery is powered by solar panels.
While the Millers now care for nearly 400 acres in 5 sub-appellations of Napa, Stags Leap remains the winery's home and the origin of our flagship Cabernet, SOLO, which honors this historic vineyard and the unique Heritage vines that were born here.
