Steve Spadarotto joined Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars as Vice President and General Manager on July 5, 2011. Spadarotto has more than 20 years of winery management, operations and finance experience in the California wine industry, including general manager responsibilities for Napa Valley winery Clos Pegase and Cambria Winery & Vineyards in the Santa Maria Valley. He also has held executive-level operations roles for Jackson Family Farms and Diageo Chateau and Estate Wines. Most recently, he was Vice President of Operations and Supply for Treasury Wine Estates.
A joint venture partnership between Washington’s Ste. Michelle Wine Estates and Italy’s Marchesi Antinori acquired the legendary winery and S.L.V. and FAY estate vineyards in 2007. Spadarotto was attracted to Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars because it has a unique place in the history books for its role in building regard and prestige for the Napa Valley and his desire to build on the winery’s historic success.
In addition to earning a BS in Business Administration from the University of Missouri-Columbia, Spadarotto holds an MBA from the University of California-Davis. He presently serves on the Dean’s Advisory Council for the UC Davis Graduate School of Management.
