Black Stallion Winery

Looking for the most captivating winery in Napa Valley?  You’ll find it here at Black Stallion Winery on the lower Silverado Trail, a few miles north of Napa. Black Stallion, which opened in  June 2007, has it all: beautiful grounds, a historic building, elegant wines, and a knowledgeable and friendly staff. Black Stallion is a true architectural showpiece, recalling an era in early California when the Napa Valley was all ranchland. Paying homage to that history, you’ll be greeted by a dramatic 10-foot bucking black stallion sculpture set atop a softly flowing fountain as you approach the impressive stone-faced winery.

The Black Stallion property was originally home to a 32-acre equestrian center, a theme the owners have carried on with the winery’s name. The winery’s main building is 20,000 square feet, and behind it is another 22,000 square foot stone building that was once the original riding track for the equestrian center and soon will be home to the winery’s main production facility. The property also currently has 11 acres planted to vineyards. Inside, it’s both the impeccable detailing and the total experience that draw you in. All the finishes were specially selected and sourced, from the stone fireplace to the mahogany woodwork and the long center tasting bar framed above by Douglas Fir trellising. It’s a bar all the way around, with ample space for small or large groups to enjoy front and center hospitality. Black Stallion has set aside plenty of space for its wine club, including a club lounge with beautiful leather furnishings where wine club members can taste wines in Riedel stemware. There is a tasting room available for seated tastings.  The Barrel Room provides the winery ambience for private dining, with a ceiling designed like the inside of a barrel, rustic alderwood furniture and a view of the barrel room. Black Stallion’s terrace provides the relaxing outdoor tasting experience, with a permanent tasting bar and seating for 30, all under umbrellas. Skirting the tasting terrace is the winery’s educational vineyard, where you can learn about the different varietals. Black Stallion’s current production is a mere 3,800 cases. Go early. You may end up staying all day.
