Fodor's Expert Review Stags' Leap Winery

Napa Winery/Brewery/Distillery
A must for history buffs, this winery in a bowl-shaped micro valley at the base of the Stags Leap Palisades dates to 1893. Three years earlier, its original owners erected the Manor House, which reopened in 2016 after the restoration of its castlelike stone facade and redwood-paneled interior. The home, whose open-air porch seems out of a flapper-era movie set, hosts seated tastings of the refined wines of Bordeaux-born Christophe Paubert. Estate Cabernet Sauvignons, Merlot, and Petite Sirah, one bottling of the last varietal from vines planted in 1929, are the calling cards. Paubert also makes Malbec, along with Viognier, Chardonnay, and rosé. Some tastings take place on the porch, others inside; all require an appointment best made a day or more ahead.
