Frog's Leap was founded by the Williams Family in 1981 on a spot along Mill Creek known as the Frog Farm. An old ledger revealed that around the turn of the century, frogs were raised on the property then sold for $.33 a dozen, destined no doubt, for the tables of Victorian San Francisco gourmets.
Frog's Leap makes its home amongst 130 acres of vineyards in Rutherford at the historic Red Barn. This grand and welcoming building was built in 1884 as the Adamson Winery and renovated in 1994 as Frog's Leap's permanent home. Frog's Leap's annual production of almost 60,000 cases is comprised of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Rutherford.
Using the best of Napa Valley's organically grown grapes and the most traditional winemaking techniques, Frog's Leap strives to produce wines that deeply reflect the soils and climate from which they emanate. Frog's Leap produces some of Napa Valley's finest wines and, undoubtedly, has one of the wine worlds best mottos: Time's fun when you're having flies.
