A California Wine Dinner

With Winemaker/Proprietor Paul Hobbs

Tuesday, August 18, 2020 • 6:30 pm

Join us Tuesday, August 18, 2020, for a very special wine dinner with the Iconic Winemaker Paul Hobbs. Paul is traveling through Ohio on a pilgrimage to his birthplace in upstate New York. We were honored to be asked to host a dinner featuring his Napa and Sonoma Valley wines as well as his Vina Cobas project in Argentina.

Paul Hobbs has built his winery’s portfolio from the ground up, on a foundation of strong, collaborative relationships with the growers of some of Napa’s and Sonoma’s most compelling and historical properties. Meticulous vineyard management followed by minimally-invasive winemaking techniques is Paul Hobbs’ approach for producing wines that express their vineyard origins with utmost finesse, complexity, and authenticity; in other words, wines with a sense of place. As a winemaker, Paul is highly regarded for his ability to identify exceptional vineyards along with his pioneering, innovative work with new and historical sites and regions. His success has inspired a wealth of nicknames among the press, from quiet trendsetter to truffle-hunting dog. He founded Paul Hobbs Winery in 1991, Vina Cobos in 1999 and is a leading consultant winemaker around the globe.
