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, Hoopes Vineyard has uniquely diverse and fertile alluvial soils despite the small ten-acre size. Farmed and picked by hand, the unique Hoopes fruit receives the highest attention throughout the entire grapegrowing process. The microclimate is very cool in the evening and mostly moderate heat throughout the day. The vineyard produces some of the best Cabernet in the valley due to the unique site, clone, and soil combination.
Please note that until further notice, due to the heat across the country, any order without an appropriate temperature control shipping method will be placed on heat hold for shipping release on October 7th. If you think it's safe to ship in your area, for example, San Francisco Bay Area, please drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will release the wine. Hoopes Vineyard does not accept liability for wine damaged by heat shipped contrary to this advisement. Stay cool!
