ABOUT THE WINERY
Borne on land being farmed for grapes since before prohibition, the Shafer Family acquired the land and opened a winery in 1972. His first Cabernet Sauvignon was planted just a few years later. A Napa Valley classic winery, in recent years Shafer has taken steps toward sustainable agriculture, planting cover crops and erecting hawk perches and owl nesting boxes (to encourage these raptors to lower the gopher population) in Stags Leap District and Carneros vineyards.
