Hoopes Family Wines are classic Cabernet Sauvignons that capture the pure relationship between grape-grower and winemaker with an old-world-meets-new-world style profile.The philosophy is simple: minimize after-harvest manipulation of the grape so that you can enjoy the most important ingredient in its true form. This is true grower-made wine.
Hoopes Vineyard is located in the southernmost part of Oakville, where Yount Mill Road divides the Oakville and Yountville sub-appellations of Napa Valley. The vineyard grows vigorously. Nestled against a hill, and sitting firmly in the flood zone of the Napa River, the vineyard has uniquely diverse and fertile alluvial soils despite the 10-acre size. Farmed and picked by hand, the unique Hoopes fruit receives the highest attention throughout the entire grape growing process. The micro-climate is very cool in the evening and enjoys mostly moderate heat throughout the day.
