Ladera

Guided for more than two decades by renowned winegrowers and vintners Pat and Anne Stotesbery, Ladera has earned a reputation for making some of Napa Valley's greatest mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignons. At the same time, Ladera has helped to champion a balanced expression of mountain winemaking where smoothly structured tannins, excellent natural acidity and layered complexity add nuance and sophistication to the intensity of the mountain fruit. Made by gifted winemaker Jade Barrett using grapes from the finest mountain vineyards, Ladera's wines are recognized as benchmarks for their depth, elegance and aging potential.
