The Stags Leap District Winegrowers is a non-profit association of neighboring vintners and growers whose mission is to work together to grow the reputation of the appellation and its wines and share its quality with the wine loving world. Committed to educating the wine trade and enthusiasts alike about the appellation's unique conditions of soil, climate and exposure that are reflected in the excellence of its wines, the SDLW aims to increase awareness about the importance of "sense of place" evident in the Stags Leap District.
Comprised of only 2,700 acres, with approximately 1,200 planted, the Stags Leap District is known worldwide for its Cabernet Sauvignon. In fact, the District is comprised of over 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and upwards of 90% with red Bordeaux blending varietals included. Benefiting from cool Pacific breezes, long, dry summer days and unique volcanic soils with overlays of bale loam, the Stags Leap District produces wines critically acclaimed for their power and grace, lush fruit and soft tannins with complex layers of flavor.
