As Odette Estate winemaker, Jeff Owens guides the style behind our Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon estate wines as well as our Adaptation tier, sourced from top vineyards throughout Napa Valley. He firmly believes that the two most important elements behind these wines are distinctive terroirs and exceptional people involved at every step of the process, fromcultivating vineyard rows to determining the final blends.

“Wines from Stags Leap District develop remarkable power and fine, classic structure,” explains Jeff. “I’m looking forward to exploring every facet of our vineyard’s personality, and to helping design a new winemaking facility that enhances its unique expression.”Jeff has served as Assistant Winemaker at CADE and PlumpJack Wineries since 2008.
