Embrace the Unexpected. Ignite Curiosity.

That’s the philosophy of Lions Head Collection.

In the hands of our winemaker Stephanie Pope, the dynamics of Napa and Sonoma are captured in Lion Tamer and Panthera — wines made to evolve what defines a great Cabernet or Chardonnay. They’re captivating, perfect for connecting over a glass or two.

What To Pour

Panthera Chardonnay, Russian River Valley 2021

Poise and grace, in a glass. Sonoma fruit, vibrant and pure. Fresh lemon curd over brioche toast. A confident edge of French vanilla and oak.

The 2021 Panthera Chardonnay has been released.

More From Our Cellar

Lion Tamer Napa Valley

Our cellar door overlooks some of the best spots to grow Cabernet on Mount Veeder. But we’ve found over the years that there are microclimates and certain vineyard sites that are not the right environment for Cabernet. They are right for Malbec.

The Malbec we grow in Napa forms the backbone of our coveted Cabernet Sauvignon and Red Blend.

Lion Tamer is about finding new ways to capture Napa in a bottle. To ultimately make amazing wine, by and for the next generation.

The Panthera Story


We created Panthera to capture the dynamic beauty of Sonoma.

Because there’s something special in the delicate balance between elegance and boldness.
