Napa Valley | Atlas Peak | Pritchard Hill
The distinctive, breathtaking Stagecoach Vineyard is planted to more than 600 acres on top of the Vaca Mountain Range, with more than 150 individual blocks planted to a large number of varieties and clones. This extremely rocky site makes for very concentrated wines as the vines have to struggle to find water.
