Stage Left Cellars Description

Stage Left Cellars has a passion for wine...collecting, drinking, studying and experimenting. More importantly, Stage Left grew from the thread of experiences and adventures that came with that passion for wine. They believe great fruit equals great wine. While they are fans of new winemaking technology, for all intents and purposes, they like to stay old school.

Everything at Stage Left is done by hand, in small lots. They hand-pick and hand-sort every last cluster of fruit, and only the best raw material makes it through to production. For the most part, they simply smooth things along so Mother Nature can do her thing and with that, they try all kinds of crazy experiments on micro lots to see if they can outdo her. Best known for "The Day Job and The Breadwinner" wines.

Located right off the 880 and easy to get to, you just wouldn't expect a winery to be located there.
