The FAY vineyard is the land where the story of Stags Leap Wine Cellars began back in 1969 when Warren Winiarski tasted Nathan Fays 1968 homemade Cabernet. Warren knew, instantly, that he had found what he was searching forclassic elements of fruit and structure, suppleness and balance. It was a style that Warren refers to as "an iron fist in a velvet glove. As luck would have it, an adjoining prune orchard was for sale. The Winiarskis purchased the land and planted a vineyardnow known as S.L.V. and soon after, Stags Leap Wine Cellars was born. [+]
