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.

Booked by Jensen of Green Hills Wine Tours. Friendly reception staff and we were well looked after by Seth. On the back porch, with heaters and rugs. Treated with a very old wine to c/w the current releases. This is well worth a visit.

We did not have a reservation and decided to drop in. We were greeted by a friendly staff and were offered three different samples before deciding which to buy. The outdoor area is very nice.

This winery has been around for a long time, but you have to remember you can only get the tastings if you have a reservation.
A tasting with four different wines is about $20.00,the wines are pretty good but not stellar but again they are not that expensive.
Customer service is pretty good with plenty of knowledge, after the tasting you can wonder around the vegetable plot and their gardens, it’s worth a couple of hours a lot better than some other places.

Beautiful gardens, family friendly, and great wines. The grounds of this vineyard is just gorgeous and there are lots of room to roam around. The service was great as well and the wines were great. Their zinfandel and 2014 Cabernet savigon was just so great. We spent over 2 hours heres just enjoying our wines and the grounds. They do not sell wines by the glass. A tasting is about $20 per person and comes with 4 different wines to taste. There are complimentary juices and coloring books for kids. Great times. Also please buy a bottle of Cabernet here....I regret not doing so

Wonderful wine and lovely grounds to walk around. Be sure to walk out back towards the sounds of the chickens for another serving area with tables.
