Staglin Family Vineyard

Shari and Garen Staglin

Staglin Family Vineyard began in 1985, when Garen and Shari Staglin purchased a unique 62-acre Rutherford Bench property with a 50-acre producing vineyard from Walter Sullivan and his wife Dagmar dePins, Georges de La Tour’s granddaughter. Originally planted under the guidance of the legendary André Tchelistcheff in 1965 (for BV Georges de La Tour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon), the vineyard has been sustainably farmed since 1990, and is organically certified.

Join us for a visit with Garen and Shari Staglin, along with their winemaker, Luc Morlet, as we talk with the Staglins about their many philanthropic activities, the Napa scene over the last two decades, what it takes to run a vineyard of this magnitude.

    Is there a way to view the video if you don’t have an ipod?

    You can play the video using iTunes or Windows Media Player. Just download the movie (right click on link, save target as) to your PC or MAC. Then play the movie with any media player – it’s just an .mp4 file.

    If you have any problems making it work let us know.
