lsley Vineyards is located in the Vaca Mountain foothills of Napa Valley’s Stags Leap District. For three generations our family has provided grapes for some of Napa Valley’s finest wines. Now after fifty years of farming, we have hand-selected grapes from our hillside vineyards to produce two limited production, estate wines, that we believe capture the essence of the Stags Leap District. Our Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon is a complex, fully textured, rich wine typical of our hand-farmed vineyard within the Stags Leap District. The “Seis Primas”, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Merlot, blends delicious fruit flavors with elegance and balance.
At Ilsley, the label of “family winery” isn’t a marketing strategy; it’s a way of life. The work is divided between three third-generation siblings- Janice, Ernie and David- and their spouses. Each has a full time job and works for the family business as a labor of love.
