Winemaker Notes

Our Estate Grown, handcrafted wines are sustainably farmed on our century-old family ranch. Located in the northern end of the Napa Valley, our ranch is situated on a bed of alluvial soil which creates fruit of unique character and elegance.

Our 2015 Calistoga, Napa Valley Charbono is Seductive. Black cherry, pomegranate, and dark plum. Heirloom romanticism & south of France allure. Transcendent.

Hand-picked & cold soaked while awaiting the fermentation start. Then gentle hand punch downs. After extended maceration and dryness we press directly to seasoned French oak barrels for native ML fermentation. These very traditional methods employed help capture the sense of place and time.

COMMENTARY: The Shypoke 2015 Le Corbeau Red Wine is all about quality. Winemakers Meg & Peter Heitz are serious in their endeavor to produce a bona fide, first-class Charbono. TASTING NOTES: This wine starts and ends with glorious purity. Its aromas and flavors of deep black fruits, earth, and mineral accents stay long and persistent on the palate. Pair it with savory, slowly-braised meat dishes accented with a side of wild mushrooms. (Tasted: March 21, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Shypoke, California
Shypoke calls the Calistoga AVA home. Our estate vineyard is located in the north-western corner of the world famous Napa Valley. Our dirt to bottle history began in 1904, when Peter Heitz' great grandparents immigrated from Alsace and literally planted roots and built bonded winery #130 for the production of fine wines. Through five generations of grape growers and winemakers, our family has continued the vision and efforts begun in 1904.
Each wine honors the traditions of a family working together, to farm heirloom vines and to hand craft the resulting fruit into uniquely elegant and honest wines of place and vintage.
Rooted in our family history, we craft wines that are both delicious and interesting. Above all, we work to make wines that we are proud to put on our table, as well as yours. The picking knife featured on our label signifies the harmony of Shypoke's farming and winemaking practices.

One of Napa Valley’s oldest wine growing subregions but last to gain appellation status, Calistoga occupies the northernmost section of the valley. Beginning at the foot of Mount St. Helena, its vineyards stretch over steep canyons and roll out onto the valley floor. The soils in Calistoga are volcanic, which means they are heavy in minerals, low in organic matter and allow good drainage for vine roots, creating less green growth and more concentration of flavor within the grape berries.

Summer days are very hot but most nights cool down with moist ocean breezes sneaking in over the Mayacamas Mountains or from Knights Valley to its northwest.

Cabernet Sauvignon is the area’s star variety with Zinfandel coming in a strong second, though the latter commands far less price per tonnage so continues to be outshined by Cabernet in vineyard acreage, save for some important exceptions.
