A basement, in Humboldt County, outfitted with just two dairy tanks, was the humble beginning of our winery. Of this tiny, dug out space, Les assured Joe Bob that, “We have all the room we will ever need.” However, the roots of Behrens & Hitchcock are found in Folie Douce, the award-winning restaurant Lisa Drinkward and Les Behrens launched in 1991 in Arcata, California. While Lisa was developing an incredible, French-inspired menu, Les was busy cultivating a superb wine list and cellar which eventually received the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence. In the course of creating the wine list, Les met many winemakers and received encouragement from several to begin making his own wine. The idea, which seemed almost nonsensical at first, quickly began to take root in Les’ mind. – Description from Kursulla

  • Heavyweight Red Cabernet Sauvignon "Champ Big John" 2007

    Snoothrank:

    You know I love wines with fun labels or quirky names, so what better wine than the "Heavyweight Red"? This one is quirky and it has a fun label with the "champs" Giant Jess and Bob the Bruiser about to square off. This one bills itself as a "luscious, big-tasting red" and it lives up to the promise. A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% syr... Read More

  • Heavyweight Red ' 2008

    Snoothrank:

    I recently tried this Cab from a locally owned, small wine shop here in the metro Atlanta area and found it totally awesome! It has everything I like in a Cab - deep, chocolate, cherry and pepper. At a very reasonable price, it is worth trying, and a definite good buy. Read More

  • Behrens and Hitchcock Cabernet Sauvignon Left Blank Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

    Snoothrank:

    The 2004 Left Blank is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. With an alcohol content of 15.6%, this wine packs a punch of smoothness! it exhibits hints of minerals, new saddle leather, graphite, and smoke. Rich, full-bodied, and superbly concentrated with a seamless integration of wood, acidity, alcohol, and tannin. The mouthfeel is lush, yet bright and has ... Read More
