Stags Leap and Yountville AVAs are best known for producing more restrained Cabernets than their warmer microclimate neighbors. Both
regions benefit from western hills that funnel coastal breezes from nearby San Pablo Bay. In summer, this wind cools hanging fruit and reduces acidity in resulting wines. Wines from this region also benefit greatly from the rocky, volcanic soils. While Stags Leap enjoys the quiet serenity of wine tasting along the Silverado Trail, neighboring Yountville hosts the restaurants, hotels and upscale shopping. Its no wonder wine lovers from near and far flock to Stags Leap and Yountville regularly.
