A view of the vineyard's valley

Atlas Peak: home to Napa Valley’s most highly elevated, rugged and visually startling landscape. Not for the faint of heart, this immensely challenging and unadulterated region of Northern California Wine Country, has been producing fine wines since 1870. Fruit from the Atlas Peak Appellation is sold to some of the most prestigious wineries in Napa Valley, including Caymus, Cardinale, Cain, ZD, Stags’ Leap Winery, and Stags’ Leap Wine Cellars. Popular Atlas Peak wines include, to name a few, Pahlemeyer, Elan, Stagecoach, and Rivera Vineyards.


Your gift of wine, via Rivera Vineyards, was exceedingly generous and contributed much to the triumph of the evening.
