A Family With a Passion for Wine

Our roots run deep into the Stags Leap soil. We fell in love with our home ranch in 1998, and our fascination with Cabernet Sauvignon has never diminished. As stewards of the land and keepers of the grape, we can cultivate, shape, caress and coax cooperation from the vines, but ultimately, they are a wild thing, natural and independent and the joy comes from the awareness that we are beholden to nature’s timeless story. We thrive on diversity and our portfolio reflects this with wines from our three estate vineyards: Stella Knight in Calistoga, Brenda’s Vineyard in Stags Leap and Honey B in Carneros. Our curiosity drives us to explore new regions and each year we curate a selection of wines entitled The Thomas Collection produced from both estate and purchased fruit. Everything that we create comes from our singular desire to consume exceptional wines with friends and family. Wine summons us to gather together to share in the tradition of storytelling which we embrace as a method to pass on our customs, history, and heritage through the generations. The energy, the connection to one another, the desire to listen and then to retell the tale, creates the framework for an enduring legacy. We believe that within each of us lives a legacy, a story waiting to be told. We welcome the opportunity to share our picturesque Stags Leap property with others who seek a refuge from the hectic pace of everyday living because stories, like wine, are meant to be shared.

OUR TASTING ROOM

Within each of us lives a legacy, a story waiting to be told. Stories, like wine, are meant to be shared. The tradition of storytelling, as a method for passing down customs, history and heritage through the generations, is a uniquely human attempt to embrace eternity. The place where the storytelling occurs is almost as important as the story. The energy, the connection to one another, the desire to listen and then to retell the tale, creates the framework for an enduring legacy. Without a place, a space to commune, the legacy quickly becomes a faded memory. Read More

Inside the Wine

In 2013, the estate vineyard porfolio once again expanded with the purchase of the Stella Knight Vineyard. The 8.5 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are located in Calistoga, at the base of Diamond Mountain. The region is one of the hottest parts of the Napa Valley, with a soil series of volcanic bedrock and sediment - ideal growing conditions for premium wine grapes. Calistoga’s unique geology and climate offer another opportunity for Michael Baldacci to explore new personalities of Cabernet. We are pleased to offer two unique expressions of Cabernet from this nested AVA.
