Spencer Hoopes founded his namesake winery in 1983 after a chance invitation to a wine tasting in San Francisco sparked a passion for winemaking. Having grown up on a farm in southeastern Arizona Spencer was well suited to make the transition to growing grapes, and he began his new venture by planting 10 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon vines in Oakville.

Today Hoopes Vineyard is a thriving family-owned Napa winery which is still run by Spencer along with his daughter, Lindsay. Their Napa Valley Cabernet is an authentic expression of the region’s diverse terroir, incorporating fruit from a variety of different microclimates and soil types to paint a complex picture of this exceptional winemaking land.

In The Vineyard
Our flagship wine is, and always has been, the soul of our farm. Crafted from our ten-acre vineyard in the heart of Oakville, planted in 1983, it was previously a fruit source for a number of famous estates until we started winemaking ourselves. The soil is dense in geologic composition, featuring four different types of soil. One, volcanic, is unheard of in the Oakville sub-appellation, with the exception of To Kalon, and is rarely, if ever present, in valley floor vineyards. We harvest this vineyard in fourteen small batches, despite the small size, to ensure the perfect balance of acid, flavor, and tannins.
Rich red cherries, blackberries and cassis immediately burst out of the glass while the first sip reveals a robust full body, firm tannins and a well-built structure which will respond well to additional time in the cellar. Fruit forward in character with plenty of cigar box spice, bitter chocolate and licorice notes on the long finish, this makes a great match for barbecued meats, steak, or a hearty bowl of fresh pasta served with a rich beef or game ragu sauce.
