Wappo Hill Vineyard is located on 400 acres in the Stags Leap District of Napa below the steep jagged cliffs of the Stags Leap palisades. Our Wappo Hill Vineyard was acquired in 1969 and is planted primarily to Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is also where we source the Muscat Canelli for our Moscato D’Oro.
The Stags Leap District growing region has distinctive gravelly and clay loam soils, which retain less water, gently stressing the grapevines, resulting in small berries and intensely flavored fruit. The steep, eastern cliffs retain and reflect the afternoon sun, while breezes from the nearby San Pablo Bay maintain cool morning and evening temperatures. The vines thrive in this unique environment and give us wines with balanced acidity, velvety texture and ripe fruit flavors.
