Paul Hobbs Winery sprouted from the passion of one man: Paul Hobbs. Paul wasn’t satisfied just becoming Head Enologist of Robert Mondavi’s Opus One in 1981, or becoming Vice-President/Winemaker of Simi Winery in 1989. No, he wanted to create his very own grapes, on his own land. This passion led to the creation of Paul Hobbs Winery in 1991. Focused in the Russian River Valley, each harvest is meticulously captured so as to extract the very best from each grape. This passion started with only three wines in the winery’s repertoire: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon, but the winery quickly grew to produce over a dozen wines. Today, Paul Hobbs still consults other wineries around the globe, including wineries in Chile, Argentina, and Hungary.

  • Paul Hobbs Pinot Noir Carneros Hyde Vineyard 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Almost a new car leather tone on the nose, as well as wild raspberry, anise and blackberry with spice and touches of mineral and sage. The palate is full of dark sage-laced fruit. Very nice herbaceousness to this wine.- Tasted at Marché bacchus 10/2/10 Read More

Sure there have been a number of very good, and occasionally great, bottles, but my experience has been about a 20% a... Read More
