Each year, member wineries of the Stags Leap District Winegrowers open their doors for one weekend to give visitors exclusive access to their wines, their vineyards and the people behind this iconic wine region. âVineyard to Vintner' is a weekend of intimate opportunities to taste world renowned Cabernets while mingling with winery owners and winemakers. Visitors are given personal and backstage access to private homes and historic wineries alike, with private tours, barrel tastings and food pairings, all set amongst the glorious vineyards and billowing Palisades of the Stags Leap District. Vineyard to Vintner commences Friday night with four distinct dinners. Each 45-person dinner is co-hosted by several vintners and is prepared by a famed Napa Valley culinary talent. On Saturday, individual Winery Open Houses provide the ultimate back-stage pass to the Associationâs member wineries. Guests spend the day âup close and personalâ with vintners, visiting private homes and historic wineries alike, while enjoying special access to wines and food pairings that are not available to the general public. The Vineyard to Vintner weekend concludes Sunday with a fabulous, vintner-hosted farm-to-table buffet lunch and a âsneak previewâ of the not-yet-released 2014 Stags Leap District Appellation Collection. Vineyard to Vintner hosts include: Baldacci Family Vineyards, Chimney Rock Winery, Cliff Lede Vineyards, Clos Du Val, Ilsley Vineyards, Lindstrom Wines, Malk Family Vineyards, Odette Estate, Pine Ridge Vineyards, Quixote Winery, Regusci Winery, Shafer Vineyards, Silverado Vineyards, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, Stags' Leap Winery, Steltzner Vineyards, and Taylor Family Vineyards. Packages are available for one, two or three days allowing guests to revel the entire weekend or to enjoy one glorious day.
