Many of you may not know Charles personally, but we are quite sure that you have tasted his wines…Over the past two decades Charles has consulted for many prestigious labels such as Barnett Vineyards, Regusci Winery, Bacio Divino, Viader, along with several others during the last twenty years. Crafting ones own wine is the dream of almost all winemakers... hope & grace is a personal project that began with the unexpected opportunity to purchase Pinot Noir grapes from the renowned, Robert Talbott, Sleepy Hollow Vineyards, back in 2001. Having to move quickly to secure these amazing grapes, Charles needed a place to crush and store his new found fortune, and his friend Jim Regusci graciously lent a hand in getting started. Realizing that this was really happening, Charles was in search of a label and a name…he thought of two attributes that he has in life, his daughters, Hope & Grace Hendricks. The label… Charles has had “Figure in Red” displayed in his private collection for the past 20 years, which he acquired by chance from the legendary Restaurateur Modesto Lanzone in San Francisco in the early 1990’s. In search of a label design, he felt this would be the perfect painting for the hope & grace label, to provoke emotion, opinion and conversation…Just as art and wine should, and it has. “Figure in Red” was painted by Artist Charles Eckart in the early eighties. Charles Eckart, was contemporary of Manuel Neri and Nathan Oliveira of the San Francisco Bay Area Figurative movement. Today, our production has grown to approximately 2,000 cases, and our portfolio has evolved to include Chardonnay, Pinot Noirs, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignons and a tasting room. For guests that visit our hope & grace Tasting Salon in the town of Yountville, Napa Valley we offer additional extremely limited production wines. Read less

Nose of stewed fruits and jam covered fresh brioche. Yeasty tones. Loads of deep, stewed berry fruit on the palate. The oak and fruit are a tad out of balance in my opinion. Perhaps more time in the bottle. It's heavy and dry and finishes on loads of plum. - Tasted at hope & grace 12/26/10
