Andreas Cellarius was a 17th Century German scholar and map maker. His 1661 text, the Harmonia Macrocosmica, illustrated the theories and philosophies on the science of stellar and planetary movement that were debated during the Renaissance period. Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars owns a set of nine of the engravings. Highly detailed, the artist created works that manage to be both precise in their presentation of the theories of the day, and strikingly beautiful. The Cellarius Series pays tribute to Andreas Cellarius by seeking to map Napa Valley throughout three unique perspectives on a winemaking theme, and features a different engraving each vintage.
In 2013, our winemaking team explored three different trellising systems in the FAY vineyard. These wines are 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the same vineyard, but demonstrate the differences in how the trellising system contributes to the flavor and textures of the wine. The 2013 labels feature Cellarius’ Plate 5, which illustrates scenography of the Copernican world system.
