Owner description: Frog’s Leap was founded by John Williams in 1981. Started on a shoestring budget even the name itself was ‘borrowed’ by combining Stag’s Leap, where John started his Napa Valley winemaking career, and the Frog Farm, where the early vintages were made. The winery was relocated in 1994 when John and his family moved Frog’s Leap to the historic Red Barn in the heart of the Rutherford appellation. This grand and welcoming building was built in 1884 as the Adamson Winery and sits amongst some of our 200 acres of estate grown vineyards. Over the past 30 years Frog’s Leap has earned an enviable reputation with our unique combination of a whimsical label, sincere dedication to sustainable principles and our small, handcrafted production of wines. Over the years to come we look forward growing and learning more about ourselves, our wines and how we can share it all with honesty and genuine hospitality.

A highlight of our recent visit to wine country was doing a tasting at Frogs Leap. We were treated to tasting some exceptional wines that paired well with the local cheese and fresh peach conserve. Learning about the wines and sustainable/organic wine making process from our hostess, Claudia, helped to make our visit extra special. We stayed for a few hours enjoying the tasting and walking the grounds.

Nice little winery in the center valley. Very beautiful garden and enjoyed relaxing time there. You can find their wines in stores around the world but tasting in the winery is something special. Can make reservation thru Yelp so be sure to book before you visit.

We stopped here on our wine tour of Napa. They were super accommodating, despite us being a little late for our appointment. We were seated overlooking the grounds, which were part vineyard, part farm, part garden - very pretty! Our wine server was very friendly and knowledgeable, and even poured me a customized white tasting since I don't really drink reds. I bought a bottle of their rose to take with me on the rest of our trip. Highly recommend! Strolling the grounds after our tasting was an added bonus.
