Family Residence & Winery
Napa Valley, California

Staglin Family Vineyards produces some of the finest Napa Valley Cabernet from the prized Rutherford Bench area.

The Staglin residence was romantically inspired by the clients' Italian heritage and is well suited to its surrounding sixty-two acres of vineyard. Garen and Shari Staglin expressed a desire for a causal ambiance that is more rustic than regal. The end result is an informal yet impressive look at palazzo living with high open spaces in the corridor, living room, and veranda and more personal enclosed space in the kitchen and bedrooms. All with careful details, exposed heavy timber ceilings, a natural palette of materials, and a few modern touches.

The program requirements visit a full array of needs, from accommodating a 40-piece orchestra, wine library, and a museum quality collection of contemporary art, to being able to create a home for a family with the rustic comfort of a Tuscan vineyard.
