Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Introduces Cellarfest & CASK 23 Premiere Weekend


Stag's Leap Wine Cellars is a name etched in the annals of California winemaking, distinguished for producing some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon in the world. The journey to legendary CASK 23 began during the 1974 harvest with one remarkable lot from Stag's Leap Vineyards. It was so extraordinary, that it was bottled separately, and CASK 23 was born—named after the large wooden cask in which it was aged.

Today, the celebrated wine artfully blends the finest fruit from the S.L.V. and FAY estate vineyards, resulting in a wine of outstanding depth and richness balanced by restraint. Over the years, CASK 23 has become one of the most highly regarded and collected wines worldwide.
