Organic farming practices reach new heights at the Napa Valley Frog’s Leap
winery. Not only are all the grapes organically grown, but the Williams family
also plants a garden. Heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, beans, and herbs
can all be found growing in the Frog’s Leap garden. Not many wineries in Napa
Valley have a view of their own garden from the front porch, but this is the
case at Frog’s Leap.
During your seated tasting of four wines, you can gaze over at the garden and
wonder what is in season. In the summer you’ll find melons, nectarines, and
peaches. A variety of fragrant herbs available in Frog’s Leap garden include
parsley, thyme, sage, fennel, rosemary, basil and lavender.
Napa Valley Frog’s Leap is a great place to get some gardening tips. Learn how to tie tomatoes, check watering systems, and successfully fertilize your garden. Everything from squash to pumpkins and spinach to sunflowers will be seen in this sizable garden. The produce is enough to convince any skeptic of the quality of the terroir of Northern California, if for any reason the quality of the wines wasn't enough. A unique element to the wineries in Napa Valley, this garden is another personal element of an intimate tour offered by the Williams family at their Frog’s Leap winery.
