NAPA, Calif., May 30, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Stags' Leap Winery, one of the oldest and most storied wineries in Napa Valley, and Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group ("Cirque du Soleil" or "the company"), a world leader in artistic entertainment, announce an exclusive partnership that will see Stags' Leap Winery featured at Cirque du Soleil's United States Big Top Shows for one year beginning next month.

"Our stag is a symbol of courage and freedom, emboldening everyone to explore all that life has to offer in the pursuit of pleasure.
