Back in February, OWC was invited and attended Premiere Napa Valley as we've done for the last 20 years. We stumbled upon a winery that we hadn't heard of and decided to try the wine. Wow!
Located in the northeastern hills just beyond Howell Mountain in Napa Valley, Pope Valley is owned by the brother-sister team of David Eakle and Diana Hawkins. Their amazing wines are made by Jean Hoefliger (of the Debate, SVV, Alpha Omega, V Vineyards, etc) and Greg Fitzgerald. The wines are fruit-forward, have great depth, are balanced and structured, and are simply pleasurable to drink!
