In 1971, Doug Stanton’s father, John Stanton, planted grapes on this 33 acre property in Oakville on valley floor land that has gravelly, sandy clay and loam soils producing grapes of rich suppleness and texture. This vineyard produces three varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah and Merlot. Stanton Vineyard’s Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from this Oakville property.
Oakville’s unique topography, soil and climate blend together to make this appellation a viticultural treasure that is home to many of the most renowned wineries in the world including Screaming Eagle, Joseph Phelps and Stanton Vineyards.
Out of this 33 acre property, only 2 acres (approximately 8 tons) of the grapes are dedicated to the Stanton Vineyard label. The rest is sold to premium wineries including Stags Leap, Merryvale, Raymond, Orin Swift, Groth and more.
