Our winemaking goal is to allow the power and the beauty of the Hossfeld site to continue through to the wine. We strive for full extraction from the grapes and along with the vineyard's natural retention of acidity, we are able to achieve ripeness without extended hangtime. With a limitation of sulfur and an intention towards aging, our wines are composed of mountain tannin, robust fruit and a meditative finish.
We are a certified organic vineyard and the only ingredient in our estate wines is organic grapes.
We produce ultra premium, small production Napa Valley wines. With production under 400 cases a year, we sell a selection of Hossfeld wines on our website and share new releases with our Mailing List.
Spices, Rose Bud and Graphite.
This wine has a core of black cherry and graphite, lifted by the natural acidity of this exceptional site. Projecting its hillside structure from the mid-palate to the signature long finish, this wine is a perfect example of a confident hillside Napa Cabernet. Youthful and seductive now, it will bring much reward to the patient collector.
Sold as a trio.

Pomegranate, Bouquet Garni, Leather.
This blend of Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon is a fruity, finessed expression of the Hossfeld Estate. A rich, velvety purple in the glass, this mountain blend delivers the intoxicating flowery perfume of Malbec wedded with the sumptuous decadence of Cabernet Sauvignon. Finely woven tannins, the pertness of pomegranate and the structure of mountain fruit, this compelling wine shows the synergy of hillside varietals.
Acaí, Cedar Wood, Hillside Tannin.
The 2018 Hossfeld Malbec opens with a dense nose of French plum and splintered cedar. Red currant and dried bramble give way to graphite and hillside tannin. Young with volcanic vibrancy, this Malbec will cellar well for the next decade and beyond.
