Paul Hobbs, Napa Valley

'Truffle Hunter' Paul Hobbs was named most influential winemaker in California.

Named most influential winemaker in California and receiving the magical 100 point score from Robert Parker, Paul Hobbs has shot to fame for crafting small production, vineyard designate wines that are truly remarkable for their balance, intensity and sense of place.

Terroir-driven Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon are the focus at Paul Hobbs Winery, and the wines on offer this year deliver the exceptional levels of finesse and personality we have come to expect from the 'truffle hunting dog.'

Produced from fruit from carefully selected vineyards in prime appellations in the Napa Valley and on Sonoma Coast, yields are carefully managed for maximum ripeness and concentration and the harvest is carried out by hand to ensure that the fruit is in immaculate condition when it arrives at the winery.

The epitome of style, Paul Hobbs wines embrace the ripe, forward expression to which the landscape and culture of California naturally lends itself. The temperate, sun-drenched valleys, rolling hills and coastal slopes offer seemingly endless winegrowing potential.

Meticulous vineyard management followed by minimally-invasive winemaking techniques allows the wines to express their vineyard origins with finesse, complexity and authenticity. Paul Hobbs wines are fermented with native yeasts, aged in French oak, and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
