Stags' Leap Winery

The winery is located near Yountville in the Stags Leap District AVA area of Napa Valley in California, It was founded by Horace Chase in 1913 and operated as a ranch and winery. Viticulture was however in the wake of the American prohibition (1920-1933) discontinued. In 1971, Carl Doumani acquired the business and reactivated winegrowing. The vineyards cover 97 hectares of vineyards with the red varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan Noir ( mazuelo ), Grenache Noir ( Garnacha Tinta ), Mourvèdre ( Monastrell ) peloursin, Petite Syrah ( Durif ) and Syrah such as Chardonnay are planted. After several changes of ownership in 2007, the Multi Treasury Wine Estates acquired.

As for the name, there was a legal dispute between Carl Doumani and Warren Winiarski, the owner of the confusing name-like one Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, Both claimed to have used the name for the first time. According to a judicial decision, it was decided in 1986 that both companies may bear the name of the region of origin (Stags Leap). As a distinction, the apostrophe is set differently, namely before or after the "s". After the verdict, the two owners reconciled.
