Frog’s Leap was founded by John Williams in 1981. Started on a shoestring budget even the name itself was ‘borrowed’ by combining Stag’s Leap, where John started his Napa Valley winemaking career, and the Frog Farm, where the early vintages were made.

The winery was relocated in 1994 when John and his family moved Frog’s Leap to the historic Red Barn in the heart of the Rutherford appellation. This grand and welcoming building was built in 1884 as the Adamson Winery and sits amongst some of our 200 acres of estate grown vineyards.

Over the past 30 years Frog’s Leap has earned an enviable reputation with our unique combination of a whimsical label, sincere dedication to sustainable principles and our small, handcrafted production of wines. Over the years to come we look forward growing and learning more about ourselves, our wines and how we can share it all with honesty and genuine hospitality.

Our inn in napa booked us a reservation here, highly recommending as her favourite winery! Well what a treat!! We sat out in their patio and tasted 6 generous pours of wine each with cheese, soaking up the atmosphere and scenery. Chardonnay, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon were all wonderful. They have great grounds with lovely trees, a chicken coup and... More

Nice little winery, beautiful setting, very knowledgeable staff - what more could you ask. Truly enjoyed their wines, and walking around their grounds was a treat.

We cannot wait to come back. Everything about Frog's Leap is amazing - the unique porch setting for your tasting overlooks an incredible view which includes their garden. Frog's Leap is definitely unique and different from other wineries we have visited. Wine is tasty and staff is friendly - you won't be disappointed with this visit!

Up front, we did;t go for a tasting and hadn't reserved. However they did off us some tasters of the wines and we had a walk around the gardens. All really nice and very organic/relaxed. It was very busy and clearly popular as there was a sign saying they were full for tastings. We bought 3 bottles and a gift... More

Frog's leap was the first winery we visited on our trip to Napa. After 3 wine tastings in Napa we kept referring back to Frog's Leap. The scenery was beautiful, they actually explained about Rutherford wines, and allowed us to tour the winery holding a glass of our favorite pour. They served us cheese and crackers and the atmosphere was... More

I've now taken multiple trips to Napa Valley and still find Frog's Leap the best. It might be the sustainable philosophy that John Williams maintains, it might the the vibe that the staff gives it, or maybe it is just the great wine - whatever it is it is grand. Will continue to make sure to stop there on other... More

There are some really incredible wine spots to go to in the Napa and Sonoma area that it is almost hard to believe. I could probably list 20 spots to visit if one's time permitted, and I could probably list another 20 spots that I haven't visited that I would love to go to. Anyway, enough of my hyperbole. On...

This was our last winery to visit, and such a wonderful way to end our time in Napa Valley. We enjoyed four excellent wines, while seated on their back porch overlooking the beautiful gardens. They served a cheese plate with nuts, crackers, and peach jam as well. The staff was so friendly and knowledgable. We visited late in the afternoon... More

We visited last week, 12/3/2014, and loved it! Even with the rainy day, the place was gorgeous. We tasted a fabulous selection of wine while sitting on the heated back porch. So peaceful. Then Abbie took us for a tour around the property. Just heaven :)
