Odette Estate Winery

5998 Silverado Trail, Napa, CA 94558

Napa Valley Winery

Odette Estate Winery is tucked under the dramatic palisades of the Stags Leap District, just east of Silverado Trail.

Partners Gavin Newson, Gordon Getty and John Conover, with their success at PlumpJack and CADE Estate Wineries, were open to the possibility of a third winery.  In the fall of 2011, an opportunity presented itself in the form of a historic property in the Stags Leap District.

History of Odette

The 45-acre estate, was originally purchased by the Steltzner family in 1964. After purchasing the property, Richard and Christine Steltzner converted the open land to vineyards in 1970 and sold the grapes on property. The Steltzner vineyard was the second in the district planted to cabernet sauvignon grapes. Following one planted in the 1960s by Nathan Fay, now owned by Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. It wasn’t until 1977 that the Steltzner’s realized the potential of their Stags Leap District property and decided to make their own wine.

In 1980, the first 500 cases of wine from the property were released under the Steltzner Vineyards label.  The brand produced a wide variety of wines, including Bordeaux varieties and Syrah. Over the years, the couple slowly expanded their winery to include a tasting room, underground tunnels and a cave.

The Steltzner’s would boost their annual production of their namesake label to 25,000 cases annually with an array of different varietals such as cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec, and cabernet franc.. But the time had come for them to pass the torch. And the Steltzner’s wanted to make sure their property was going to be in good hands.

In early 2012, the Steltzner’s sold the winery and surrounding vineyards to Newsom, Getty and Conover, making the trio just the second owners to farm the vineyard.
