Stag’s Leap – the winery whose name has an apostrophe before the S – is the famous Napa winery known for producing the Cabernet that bested the top Bordeaux at the 1976 Judgement of Paris. Thanks to this event, both Napa and the winery became famous internationally, becoming high-end names that many people the world over have come to recognize. There’s just one problem: another winery exists in Napa named Stags’ Leap – apostrophe after the S – and it causes consumers a ton of confusion. The debate between the two even eventually led to a lawsuit that went all the way to the California Supreme Court.
Though the two wineries have since settled, and have even become amicable with one another, the confusion between the two still exists, and we want to help clear it up. And so we invite you to join us as we taste through a few of each winery's portfolio with side-by-side comparisons of some of their greatest hits!
