About Us

Guided for more than two decades by the Stotesbery family, Ladera has earned a reputation for making some of Napa Valley’s most extraordinary mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignons, along with acclaimed Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from their Pillow Road Estate Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Along the way, Ladera has helped to champion a beautifully balanced expression of winemaking, with smoothly structured tannins, energetic natural acidity and soaring flavors.

With deep agricultural roots, and decades of experience as ranchers, Pat and Anne Stotesbery acquired their first Napa Valley mountain vineyard in 1996. They quickly fell under the spell of growing wine grapes, and the following year, they purchased their second vineyard—Lone Canyon—embracing life as full-time winegrowers and vintners. In 1999, guided by a vision of crafting a balanced and sophisticated style of mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, they founded Ladera, which means “hillside” in Spanish and Italian, and made their debut vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Ladera quickly earned acclaim as a rising star with a reputation for making some of Napa Valley’s most exciting high-elevation wines—a reputation that was solidified when renowned Winemaker Jade Barrett joined Ladera in 2012. An internationally trained winemaker, and a veteran of Napa Valley’s Lewis Cellars, Jade’s thoughtful, vineyard-driven approach has only reinforced the remarkable quality of Ladera’s wines. At the same time, he has remained true to Pat and Anne’s belief in making elegant and balanced wines that possess structure and nuance.

As Ladera has evolved, it has moved away from owning vineyards and instead focused on partnering with several of Napa Valley’s most respected growers, to source fruit from acclaimed sites. “Over the course of our first 20 years, our love of mountain vineyards took us from Mount Veeder to Lone Canyon to Howell Mountain and beyond,” says Pat. “From each location we learned a great deal, which made our wines better and better. Today, this knowledge and experience, along with the freedom and ability to work with Napa Valley’s greatest vineyards, is resulting in our finest wines ever.”

Winery Features

Tasting Experience

In June 2020, Ladera unveiled its new forever home in Napa Valley. Our small, family owned and operated winery is situated amongst the most prestigious wineries in St. Helena, and our idyllic location makes us one of the most sought-after wineries on the Silverado Trail. The property, which is situated on several acres that rise into the hills above the Silverado Trail, offers idyllic views of the Western Mayacamas Mountains. The opening of our interim tasting room represents the first phase of a multi-year project that will ultimately include an 8,600 square foot cave winery, vineyards and new hospitality facility. While many wineries are known for their indiscriminate and excessive visitation practices, at Ladera you’ll find an inviting and intimate tasting environment that is focused on allowing us to connect with our guests and offer them the highest quality tasting experience possible.
