We made great choices for wine tastings in Napa Valley but Stag’s Leap Cellars clearly stands out. Our charming and very witty host, Scott, reserved the best seats for us: our table was facing the hills and the winery, so he made us happy from the start. Then he proudly presented their four spectacular wines to us: two Cabernets and two Chardonnays. We booked their Napa Valley Collection Tasting Flight (cost $50 per person) and their 2019 Artemis Cab stole my heart forever. No surprise that Stag’s Leap Cabernet ranks among the finest Cabs in the world.

The interior of the winery is beautiful, the terrace for wine tasting faces gentle Napa hills, the service is impeccable - absolute perfection!

This was my second visit to this amazing wine maker. This time our host was Victor and he did an excellent job going through the different wines they offer and the history of the winery. I strongly recommend this visit so you can enjoy the great wines they produce. My favorite is the Cask23

Our first stop on Day 2 in Napa Valley - and one of our favorites! We sat on the patio but were able to explore inside for a bit as well and you just can't help but notice the floor to ceiling windows that would allow perfect views in the event you're sitting inside vs. out.

Kelsey was our tasting guide and she was absolutely wonderful. She explained the wines that were part of our tasting very well and shared some of the history behind Stag's Leap and the 1976 Judgment of Paris. On top of that, she was really enthusiastic about helping us discover our favorites wines, even bringing out a few extra tastings when she learned we hadn't tried many Sauvignon Blancs and that my husband wasn't a huge fan of white wine. And we loved them! It was a really fun tasting and a lot of that is because we had Kelsey as our guide.

Definitely recommend adding this to your list if ever in Napa!

Wineries in Napa have become very snobbish. Very few walk-ins available. Daou Winery was the worst! Extremely RUDE! You’re treated like a peon if you don’t have a reservation. If they do decide you’re worthy enough to enter the premises, you’re cast down to the gallows (dirt parking lot).

In general, the tastings at the majority of wineries are overpriced. The selections are not the best.

We found more welcoming wineries in Paso Robles. If Napa gets there head out of the clouds…we may return one day.

This was far and away the worst tasting experience we had during our trip to Napa. As I am a big fan of Stag's Leap wine, this was the first winery we had on our agenda and we came straight from the airport. We opted for the estate tasting and were brought to our table in the tasting room. Our host came over and asked us if we had any questions before giving us a brief description of the wine. He didn't delve into the history of Stag's Leap or offer any additional insight. He then came back every 10 minutes to ask if we had any more questions. At one point he didn't come back to our table for about 20 minutes so we just left as we had prepaid.

In fairness, we did notice that folks around us had hosts who were providing lots of information, brining out additional wines, bringing out grapes to show them differences, etc. - so maybe this was more of an issue with the specific host we had? The wine is good, but there are so many better tasting experiences in Napa - would not recommend coming here.

One of the worst wine clubs and the customer service is horrible. Never received anything on what they charged my credit card, and the wine was damaged in shipment and now have been waiting almost a month for my refund. Called every week and told every week it will be processed in a week.
Too bad cause the wine is great.

A friend recommended we visit Stags Leap but we inadvertently made a tasting reservation at the wrong winery not realizing that there are two Stags Leap wineries (under different ownership). The tasting experience was ok but nothing special and fell short of other wineries we visited. In order to have the tasting fee waived you had to buy a certain amount of wine (not unusual) so we did. Unfortunately one of the bottles of wine we received (and was charged for) was not the one we ordered and over $100 more for this one bottle. Once I realized what happened I responded to the customer survey they sent me and answered “yes” to the question about whether I wanted to be contacted. I also left a detailed message explaining the situation and asked for a return call. I have heard absolutely NOTHING and have to wonder how often these type of mistakes happen.

After many years of enjoying Stag’s Leap wine, we finally booked the cave tour when we visiting the Napa area recently. I highly suggest this tour, it’s truly incredible to see the caves, learn the history of Stag’s Leap and it’s founder, learn about the area, and ultimately enjoy some of their best wines!

Mark, our wine educator was incredible and very informative. We enjoyed everything he had to tell us, and you can tell he’s enthusiastic about wine. He did such a great job, that we ended up joining as members.

The grounds and caves are beautiful! The history is rich, especially since this is pretty much the winery that put American wine on the map.

Highly recommend stopping in and doing one of the cave tours!

My wife and I are members and wanted to visit the winery for a tasting and wine cave tour. Upon arrival we noticed that the tasting room was extremely crowded, so I encourage anyone thinking of visiting to make a reservation. After check in we were given a glass of white ( I forget the type) and out tour began. Our tour guide was Jo Jo (I believe I got his name correct and apologize if I did not). He was wonderfully friendly and knowledgeable about the history of Stags Leap and the wine they produce. You could clearly see the pride this man takes in being a part of the Stage Leap family! After our history lesson and tour in the barrel room we made our way into the tasting room. Jo Jo poured us several different wines including the Fay, SLV and Cask 23 ! All the while expertly walking us though the history of these wines and what we can expect to tase on our pallets. To make this even better we were seated in a room overlooking the beautiful vineyards and watched as the fog swirled down the mountain consuming the view. I cannot recommend visiting this winery enough. A small not of caution, Stags Leap is very pricey. If your on a budget you may want to pass.

We absolutely loved our tasting with Jo Jo, but the wines were incredibly expensive and there was absolutely no food or snacks available. Don’t get me wrong the views and the wines were outstanding, but we got a little hungry which took away from the experience. If you do go, ask for Jo Jo, he made the experience very memorable.
