Esteemed Napa Valley winemaker Chris Dearden has finally opened the doors to Sleeping Giant Winery in the Tuscan-like rolling hills of the Los Carneros AVA. Chris purchased this 12-acre estate in 2006, and recently constructed a spectacular winery designed for our guests to enjoy tasting with vineyard views at almost every angle. This is the culmination of an illustrious 30-year career as the winemaker behind many critically acclaimed Napa wines and consulting in the cellars of some of the most famed wineries in the world.
