D.R. Stephens Estate
D.R. Stephens Estate is a family-owned and operated Napa Valley winery that specializes in producing site-expressive Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from singular vineyards recognized for growing exceptional wine grapes. Its physical and emotional heart is the Moose Valley Vineyard, a pastoral 7½ –acre vineyard located on the D. R. Stephens Estate in the rolling hills of Howell Mountain in the St. Helena AVA. This vineyard, planted in 1996, is the source for the original single vineyard wine, D. R. Stephens Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Moose Valley Vineyard.
D.R. Stephens Estate was founded by Donald R. Stephens and is co-owned and managed by Don’s son, Justin, who became managing partner in 2005. Born in San Francisco, Justin spent much of his formative years in Napa Valley and gained extensive experience in production, sales, operations, and management at several well-known Napa Valley wineries prior to being named D. R. Stephens Estate’s general manager.
