Wine - Cabernet Sauvignon - Bench Vineyards
Bench Vineyards is decades in the making, combining some of the most distinctive vineyards in Stags Leap with the most distinguished and dynamic individuals in the Napa Valley. Viticulturist Jim Barbour, winemakers Mike Smith and Bob Pepi, alongside founders Allison Steltzner and Sam Sharp.
Tucked at the base of the Stags Leap Palisades, Bench Vineyards was inspired by the unique geography. Surrounded by a ring of hills and mountains, the unique orography in the Stags Leap District defines our wines and the famed appellation. Orographic influences are climatic influences, it is where the ground meets the air.
