The winery is located near Yountville in the AVA area Stags Leap District in the Napa Valley in California, It was founded in 1913 by Horace Chase and operated as a ranch and winery. The viticulture was however in the course of the American prohibition (1920-1933). In 1971, the company was acquired by Carl Doumani and the viticulture reactivated. The vineyards cover 97 hectares of vineyards, with the red wines 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 it became a multi Treasury Wine Estates acquired.

As for the name, there was a 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 court ruling, 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 and after the "s". After the verdict, the two owners reconciled.
