Forbes magazine published an article in 2013 referring to Paul Hobbs as the "Steve Jobs of the wine world."|
Please join us to find out why!
Paul's brother Matt will be on hand to regale you with the history, and a glimpse into the future, of this extraordinary wine producer!
Twice named Wine Personality of the Year by Robert Parker, Hobbs was first hired by Robert Mondavi for his expertise in oak aging, he then moved on to Opus One and later Simi Winery. Hobbs is also credited with recognizing, despite the skeptics, the winemaking potential in Argentina, (while we were all distracted and busy swooning over California). His efforts helped bring that region into global focus. Now he's busy running Paul Hobbs Winery and Vina Cobos in Argentina. He's also consulting, sharing his knack for finding good dirt with winemakers across the globe.
