Established in 1847, well before there was a Napa Valley wine industry, Stone Hill grew to be the second largest winery in the United States. Its wines were world renowned, winning gold medals in eight world’s fairs, including Vienna in 1873 and Philadelphia in 1876. By the 1870’s, the winery was shipping 1,250,000 gallons of wine per year. Stone Hill’s labyrinth of arched underground cellars are the largest in North America.
