Stag’s Leap Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Winemaking

By March 4, 2020Top News

Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, one of Napa Valley’s iconic producers of Cabernet Sauvignon, celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2020. Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars stunned the world in 1976 when its 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon bested some of Bordeaux’s first-growth wines in a famed tasting in Paris. It was the winery’s first commercial vintage, a wine produced from young three-year-old vines. Twenty years after the Judgment of Paris, in 1996, the Smithsonian Institution created a display documenting the event and the 1973 S.L.V is now part of the permanent collection in the National Museum of American History. Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars enters its golden anniversary year with a “renewed commitment to producing complex and age-worthy wines.” In celebration of the 50th anniversary, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars will be participating in consumer, trade and media events at the winery and around the world.
