Beau Vigne

Producer website

Ed and Trish Snider are the owners of Beau Vigne. Born and raised in the Napa Valley, Ed was the head football coach for St. Helena High School located in the heart of the Napa Valley. Among the young men he coached at St. Helena, was the winemaker for Beau Vigne, Kirk Venge. He is a crafty winemaker who has been around vineyards and wineries his entire life. His father, Nils Venge, is an icon in the wine world who always had his son, Kirk, either in a winery or in a vineyard. To Kirk’s credit, he has polished his own skill set and reputation as one of the finest wine makers in the Napa Valley. Beau Vigne is very excited about its relationship with Kirk.

The Sniders bought the property in 2002 and named the ranch Stags Ridge Vineyard, a vista overlooking Stags Leap. Stags Ridge is now over eight acres of Cabernet, clone 337 and one acre of Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot (Trish's Garden). Stags Ridge Vineyard sits at about 1,350 feet altitude in the Atlas Peak appellation on the eastern edge of Napa. Stag’s Ridge has become known as a very unique vineyard recognized in the valley as a very special place.
