Black Stallion Winery

4089 Silverado Trail, Napa, CA 94558

Wineries in Napa Valley

The name Black Stallion Estate Winery celebrates the property’s rich equestrian history. Additionally, it was once home to the Silverado Horseman’s Center; a place with ambling riding trails, stables and the area’s only indoor arena.

Black Stallion Estate Winery showcases the best of Napa Valley’s diverse winegrowing appellations. We carefully select grapes from a multitude of vineyards, individual vineyard blocks and often rows within a block. By combining the strengths of each lot, our Winemaker crafts world-class wines brimming with bold, rich flavors and gracious mouthfilling textures. Each wine reflects Napa Valley sophistication, finesse and harmony.

THE MANY FACES OF NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Taste the differences in Napa Valley terroir. This tasting explores the incredible diversity of soils and microclimates in this world-class region.  It also shows how those differences express themselves through Black Stallion Estate Winery’s Cabernet Sauvignons. We welcome you with a taste of one of our rare Limited Release wines and an overview of the Napa Valley wine region to set the stage. Then you’ll see how we craft Cabernet at Black Stallion, with a tour of our estate, setting the stage for a seated, semi-private tasting of four hand-crafted Cabernet Sauvignon wines from different Napa Valley appellations. You’ll taste them blind, and apply your new knowledge to try your hand at guessing which sub-region each Cabernet comes from.

Please allow 90 minutes. Advanced booking required. Per person cost $85 inclusive of tax, charged at time of registration.
