"Ultimately, of course, it is human intervention that turns a landscape into a vinescape. Selection of plant material, methods of cultivation and, perhaps most important, timing of the harvest have everything to do with how the land is expressed in wines."

Terlato Family Vineyards
With Terlato Family Vineyards the Terlato family continues their tradition of quality, bringing their commitment and passion to crafting world-class wine to their namesake label. Assembling an elite wine-producing team who share in their vision of handcrafting quality wines, the Terlatos set out to produce wines from the most esteemed California appellations. The Terlato Family Vineyards Cabernet is produced to best represent the prestigious terroir of Stags Leap.
"The concept I have developed for Terlato Family Vineyards is to produce varietals in the place and appellations that have proven most successful for that varietal, in order to give the wines originality, identity, honesty and authenticity."
— Anthony Terlato
