Overview of the Wine
Hoopes Vineyard is a small, family-owned winegrower and producer with deep roots in Napa Valley. First vineyard was planted in 1981 and first vintage was in 1984. The first vintage under Hoopes Vineyard was 1999.

The estate is now run by second-generation proprietor, Lindsay Hoopes. Raised on the farm by her wine-loving family, Lindsay learned how to cultivate grapes and promote Napa’s sense of place and terroir through her father, Spencer Hoopes. Spencer Hoopes loved farming, and developed a passion for wine as the wine industry in Napa blossomed right around him.

Hoopes cares deeply about sustainability efforts, and intend to shepherd the land for multiple generations to come. All of their vineyards are Certified Organic or are undergoing certification. The vineyards are working, regenerative farms complete with animals, water recycling systems, and bio-diversity practices aimed at enhancing the overall health of their vineyard ecosystem.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Welcoming you with the scent of warm toasted hazelnuts and crème brulée straight from the oven this wine is a perfect expres- sion of a warm weather Chardonnay. As the wine opens up in the glass, your first sip will greet you with juicy cantaloupe and just a hint of lime with a long-lasting finish of rich supple pears, toasted almonds, and bright citrus fruits.

96 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
I was blown away by the 2020 Chardonnay, a clean, crisp, vibrant expression of Chardonnay that has medium to full-bodied richness, wonderfully integrated acidity, and a distinct sense of minerality in its citrus, stone fruit, and white flower-driven aromatics. It's shockingly good and tastes like it cost 3-4 times its price.
