Paul Hobbs is one of California’s top winemakers—Forbes Magazine called him “the Steve Jobs of wine.” Hobbs’ credo: “Meticulous vineyard management, followed by minimally invasive winemaking techniques, allows us to produce wines . . . with finesse, complexity and authenticity.” His wines are fermented with native yeasts, aged in French oak, and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
