STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Frog’s Leap is one of the legendary Napa Valley wineries . Here under the careful stewardship of John Williams some of the most exciting wines of the valley are crafted. Serious wine presented with a warm sense of humour subtly sums up the wines of this winery where terroir and elegance are king. These are best in class and attract our top recommendation . John worked at Stags Leap when the 1973 vintage won the Paris Judgement!. The Zinfandel grapes for this wine are grown at the winemakers vineyards in St. Helena, just five miles north of Rutherford, where Zinfandel thrives in the gravel soils found there and where the winemakers at Frog’s Leap believe provide no better grounding for the elegant style of Zinfandel they love to produce.
