Description

Hoopes Vineyard is operated by Spencer Hoopes who has owned a 10-acre vineyard in the Oakville appellation since 1984. After a law and entrepreneurial career, wine is now Spencer's full time gig. He was originally introduced to Napa during a visit many years ago, fell in love with the area and purchased property. He has been a long time collector of fine wine for many years however his original intention was never to get into the wine business; today he owns three different labels - one of which he purchased in 2006. Initially he sold all the fruit from this vineyard to an area winery for a number of years. In 1999 his friend Mitch Cosentino of Cosentino Winery helped him make a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon which was his first commercial release." -Winery
