If you could dream up the perfect holiday gift for Napa wine lovers, what might it be? How about a collection of high-end Napa Valley wines, all drawn from the prestigious Stags Leap District?
The Stags Leap District Winegrowers Association has released its limited Appellation Collection, featuring one bottle of 2013 Stags Leap District-designated Cabernet Sauvignon from each of the Association’s 20 association member wineries. Only 200 sets are available, offered through December 15th, 2016.
To make the gift even more memorable, you can include a gift certificate for a winery tour after the holidays. Many Stags Leap District wineries are closed to the public or by appointment only, but a professional concierge company such as Napa Wine Tours can help you gain access.
Either way, the Appellation Collection is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to savor the signature Cabernet Sauvignons of the region, and explore the many varied characteristics of this notable grape.
