In addition to their accolades for their wines, Frog's Leap is also noted for its humorous approach to winemaking, down to their "Ribbit" corks. The winery got its name by combining "Frog Farm" (where its first wines were made) with "Stag's Leap" (where John Williams had his first winemaking job).

Great time with a wonderful host. She was very informative and knowledgeable. Great wines for their price range and all organic. Definitely worth doing a tasting and tour! We ended up signing up for their Frog Fellow group. Make sure to try out some of their hot sauce as well!
We took the guided tour here and were really glad that we did. The vines, grounds and all the local produce and flowers were beautiful. Our guide did a nice job teaching us about how Frog's Leap came to be. We had some nice wines along the tour. It was really hot out that day and our guide did a really nice job keeping us in the shade. The barn was so cool to see with all the stills and barrels. It finished with a nice seated tasting and some light bites. We really enjoyed the wine as well as some of the preserves so we purchased several to ship home. Pro-tip: Make sure to tip your guide. They just spent 1.5 hours walking you through the winery and teaching about the wine. They deserve a tip.
