Stag's Leap Wine Cellars
Decades after winning first place at the 1976 Judgment of Paris wine tasting, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars is still highly respected for its Cabernet Sauvignons. Located just off the Silverado Trail, the winery has two adjoining vineyards as well as a $5 million cave system that houses operations. Given the winery’s illustrious history, guests may be surprised by the modest tasting room—a starkly lit area with a small wooden bar—although the property also includes mosaic-like quartzite floors, copper wall sconces, and 17th-century engravings of celestial maps. Tastings can be followed by a one-hour tour of the entire facility.
