STAGLIN FAMILY VINEYARD
Founded in 1985 by Shari, Garen, Brandon and Shannon, Staglin Family Vineyard takes pride in the tradition of family ownership and participation. With an uncompromising commitment to quality, our mission is to produce world class wines that reflect the distinctive character of this historic Rutherford Bench estate. As stewards of this land we farm the vineyard organically, tap in to our solar fields for power and produce the wines in a state of the art underground production facility.
We are passionate about this business, this land, our philanthropy and for the meaningful relationships we develop with each passing day. We hope this passion is evident when you enjoy our wines.

Shari was born in South Dakota and moved with her family at age 12 to Southern California. She met her husband Garen, on a blind date at UCLA, later visiting Napa Valley, and marrying in the 1960s. While working, she completed an M.P.A. at NYU. They purchased a Napa Valley vineyard in Rutherford in 1985, prompting her return to school to study viticulture and winemaking at UC Davis. At the same time, she began the Staglin winery and has led the wine/vineyard business since 1985. Their children, Brandon and Shannon, work in the wine business as well as the non-profit organizations which Shari and Garen began in 1995, supporting global innovation of brain health, raising over $225 million for brain health/mental health research.
