It is with heavy hearts that we must announce that Frogtoberfest 2017 has been canceled.

As of Wednesday October 11th, the winery has not sustained any damage but Napa Valley is still in a state of emergency, and the wildfires are not yet contained in any way. We do not know what the coming days might bring, and we would never want to place any of you or our employees in harm’s way. And with the loss of so many homes and wineries and with the dense layer of smoke and ash that is covering the valley – and may yet for weeks to come – we simply can’t see a path forward that allows for us to have Frogtoberfest.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and share in your disappointment. During this time of uncertainty, we do not yet know if we will reschedule, but you will be refunded in full for your seats today. We will share our plan with you as soon as we have one.

The winery is currently operating at a very limited capacity, as many of our employees have been evacuated or have families who have lost homes. Due to current conditions, the winery is closed until further notice. Please visit our Facebook page for updates. 

We are deeply sorry and ask that you please join us in sending prayers for our family, friends, and neighbors who have been so greatly impacted by these wildfires.


5:00 P.M.

Toast to the 2017 harvest season from your seat at the 7th annual Frogtoberfest


This very special evening is not simply to pause, reflect and celebrate the conclusion of our harvest season. The true magic of Frogtoberfest is the gathering together of like-minded individuals from across the country to form new friendships over fine food and great wine.

Owner and Winemaker John Williams will welcome Frogtoberfest guests to the winery for a library tasting and retrospective review of his decades-long winemaking career. 

An intimate multi-course meal will follow in the Red Barn; revelers will dine together at a table stretching from one end of the barn to the other, illuminated only by candlelight.

The elegant multi-course banquet will be prepared by a special guest Chef and thoughtfully paired with Frog's Leap wines. 

Limited quantities of the rare library wines will be unearthed for this special occassion and available for purchase.
