1970

Stag’s Leap Vineyard

As luck would have it, a ranch adjoining Nathan Fay’s vineyard was for sale.

The 44 acre property was primarily a prune orchard with a little of bit Alicante Bouschet that was planted in 1928 and Petite Sirah planted in 1935. It was replanted to Cabernet Sauvignon and a little Merlot…and Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars was born.
