Ladera Vineyards - Napa Valley

Diamond Plus Selection 94 Points, Wine Spectator

The Ladera story is a tale of two vineyards, located almost at opposite ends of the Napa Valley that produce distinctive terroir-driven fruit, characteristic of their dramatic hillside and mountain ridge properties. From the Lone Canyon Vineyard on the flank of Mt. Veeder, to the Howell Mountain site high above the Napa Valley floor, the Ladera Vineyards are among the finest in the region with an unwavering reputation for stellar Bordeaux-style wines of incredible intensity. Owners Pat and Anne Stotesbery developed their hands-on style on their Montana ranch, a commercial cow/calf operation where they and their four children worked for many years. A serendipitous vacation to the Napa Valley changed everything though, as their interests in agriculture quickly shifted to the viticultural side of things and their ambition of starting a winery began to come full circle. The Stotesberys established Ladera Vineyards in 1996 and released their first wines in 2001 – met with instant critical acclaim and high scores by wine tabloids. Pat and Anne Stotesbery are joined by winemaker Karen Culler, who lends her incredible creativity and veteran winemaking talents to the Ladera wines – an exceptional portfolio that shows the potential of powerful, intense mountain fruit of the Napa Valley
