Elkhorn Peak Cellars Gift Pack Leader Assistant

Elkhorn Peak Cellars is a small, family-owned vineyard and winery on the south end of the Napa Valley. Owned and operated by father/daughter duo Ken and Elise, Elkhorn Peak Cellars makes only 1,000 cases of wine annually. You won’t find their wines in any wine shops, so their fruit and wines continue to be one of Napa Valley’s best kept secrets.

Reach out to the amazing team at Elkhorn Peak today for your personal and corporate gifting wine needs at elkhornpeak.com/leaderassistant and let them know you heard about them on The Leader Assistant Podcast!
