If you are looking for Paul Hobbs, you will most likely find him in a vineyard…  Growing up on a working farm in upstate New York, Paul experienced first‐hand the influence of terroir on the character of fruit when his father had him taste apples of the same variety grown in different orchards several miles apart from one another.  The diversity of flavors and textures made an impression on him and would later influence his approach to winemaking.

Paul is known for his keen ability to identify exceptional vineyards.  He is a quality fanatic - and this comes through in every wine that he produces. He crafts small-production wines from distinctive growing sites. Known for their meticulous vineyard management and minimally-invasive winemaking techniques, Paul Hobbs Winery has received numerous accolades since its founding in 1991.
