Dick Steltzner established his Stags Leap District vineyard in 1965 and concurrently engaged in vineyard management. In 1983 Steltzner Vineyards established their own modest 3,000 case capacity facility at the vineyard. In 1991 Dick and Christine Steltzner expanded the winery with completion of a new underground storage tunnel. This facility has allowed increased volume as well as enhanced quality characteristic of underground storage. Construction of a new winery building was completed in 1995.
