Dubbed the ‘Steve Jobs of wine’ by Forbes magazine, Paul Hobbs is a renowned winemaker and consultant. Highly regarded not only for his ability to identify exceptional vineyards, but also for his pioneering spirit in working innovatively with new and historical sites and regions.

Hired by Robert Mondavi for his advanced understanding of oak ageing, he went on to become winemaker for Opus One and Simi wineries. He founded Paul Hobbs Winery in 1991 and Viña Cobos in Argentina in 1999.

“Terroir-driven Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon are the focus at Paul Hobbs Winery.” Paul Hobbs

Paul Hobbs Winery bought its first estate property in the Russian River Valley naming it Lindsay Vineyard in honour of Paul’s great grandmother and planted it with five clones of Pinot Noir. Two neighbouring estate properties have since been planted with Chardonnay. The winery also works closely with growers of some of Napa and Sonoma’s most compelling and historical properties.

“I strive to create exuberant, intensely flavoured, richly textured wines of structure and balance that reflect the specific personality of each vineyard site. You might describe our winemaking as modern classic. Making wine, like living well, is a balance of experience and intuition, discipline and discovery. We believe we can make the best wines by keeping our roots firmly planted in traditional winemaking principles while availing ourselves of modern techniques. This approach allows us to constantly improve the quality of our wines.” Paul Hobbs
