Baldacci Family Vineyards is a California winery located in the Stags Leap District AVA of Napa Valley. Founded in 1998, Thomas and Brenda Baldacci were entranced by the beauty of the Napa Valley and the timeless heritage of the Stags Leap District. The generations before had left a deep and abiding affinity for the land from which came not only their livelihood, but their legacy. For the Baldacci’s, family is everything. When they purchased the Stags Leap property, over 18 years ago, Thomas and Brenda knew that they had found a place for their clan to stay connected through the generations. As each new vintage unfolds, they look forward to sharing their wines and their story, with you.

Second generation vintner Michael Baldacci, along with winemaker Ricardo Herrera, create limited production wines from three distinct estate vineyards located in the nested AVA’s of Calistoga, Stags Leap District and Los Carneros. The portfolio reflects the diversity of each estate vineyard with a focus on small lot, premium Cabernet Sauvignon wines. The wines have been favorably reviewed by both Robert Parker (The Wine Advocate) and the Wine Enthusiast over the past 15 years.

Ricardo Herrera has been the full time winemaker at Baldacci since 2015 and he has worked throughout the years at such iconic wineries as Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, Dominus and Screaming Eagle. Older brother and Consulting Winemaker, Rolando Herrera who used to be cellar master of Stag's Leap Wine Cellars and has worked at Napa Valley wineries Chateau Potelle, Vine Cliffe Winery and Paul Hobbes Wines still provides a guiding hand.

Along with Stags' Leap Winery and others, Baldacci Family Vineyards is a member of the Stags Leap District Winery Association.

  • This was an unreal tasting and one of the best we’ve ever experienced. The wines were amazing and only made better by our time with Quinn who thoroughly explained the differences between the varietals. He was personable, knowledgeable, warm and welcoming, and made the experience what we wanted. So enthralled we forgot to take a picture, but we didn’t forget to join the club so we can grab some bottles of the Brenda - twist my arm.... Highly recommend for a great tasting.
  • The tasting was an experience. The wines are excellent and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend visiting Baldacci! The new tasting room is under construction and looks amazing!
