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. Farmed and picked by hand, the unique Hoopes fruit receives the highest attention throughout the entire grape growing process. The micro climate is very cool in the evening and mostly moderate heat throughout the day. The vineyard produces some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon in the valley due to the unique site, clone, and soil combination.
Suggested food and wine pairing: This wine pairs very well with a gourmet burger, eggplant Moussaka or a wild boar Ragu with Fettuccine and foraged mushrooms with shaved Reggiano Parmesan.
