Vintner's Luncheon at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars

It’s not every day you get to linger on the grounds of a legendary, award-winning winery—and this afternoon at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars is just such a rare occasion. Recognized for its historic role in shaping Napa Valley’s reputation as a world-class wine region, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars is a singular presence.

This farm-to-table luncheon will be paired with Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars’ exclusive Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Guests will dine in the wine cave, an awe-inspiring place that features hammered copper sconces, shimmering quartzite floors, and a rare Foucault pendulum. One of only about fifty in the world, the pendulum suspends dramatically from the ceiling, marking the passing of time, and the aging of wine. Complementing it will be a stunning display of classic timepieces by Panerai, one of the world’s most coveted watch brands.

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars

Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, notably known for being the winery that won the Cabernet Sauvignon competition in the 1976 Judgment of Paris, was founded in 1970, and is considered a Napa Valley first-growth estate. The winery's scenic FAY Lake will be the site of the festival's Vintner's Luncheon. The  area around the lake has recently been replanted with native plants and luncheon guests will be among an exclusive group to experience this beautiful, private part of the estate while tasting a selection of Stag's Leap Wine Cellars' iconic wines.
