Margo Culcasi-Slaby & David Slaby chose to call their wine Slaughterhouse Cellars because of the dilapidated slaughterhouse that was located between the two 130 year old olive trees on the property. The slaughterhouse operated from 1884 until 1925 when the owners Salvatore and Rosi Curtoni ceased its operation, although Rosi continued to make her famous sausage to go along with her even more famous ravioli.

The true gem here is Petra. She's a great conversationist and has remembered me and my friends every time we come. This one is WAY out of the way, but a completely unique experience in Napa. The basic tasting was free, and the reserve tasting was $15. The wine was pretty good and the bocce court outside was a nice distraction. The place is like a deserted farm with dogs wandering around and unfinished road through the vineyard. It is NOT fancy, but it is often deserted and gives you the feel that you are in your own country vineyard.

On a hillside overlooking Stags Leap District of Napa Valley in 1997, the Husic Family set out to realize a lifelong dream. Moving endless rocks and sculpting narrow terraces that cling to the mountain's edge, we planted three small vineyards which peacefully coexist with the region's wildlife. These rugged, rocky growing conditions, combined with careful farming methods, have yielded a limited amount of magnificent fruit.
