The Vintner - Whether in California or Argentina, where he is the owner/winemaker at Paul Hobbs Winery and Viña Cobos respectively; or in New York’s Finger Lakes region, Chile, France, Canada and other countries where he is a leading consultant, Paul knows that the essence of profound wines can be traced back to meticulous care and expertise in the vineyard.

As a winemaker, Paul is highly regarded for his ability to identify exceptional vineyards, and for his pioneering spirit in working with new and historical sites and regions. His success has inspired a wealth of nicknames among the press, from quiet trendsetter to prospector to the Steve Jobs of winemaking. Hired by Robert Mondavi for his advanced understanding of oak aging, he went on to become winemaker for Opus One and Simi wineries, and then consultant to Peter Michael, Fisher, Lewis, Catena and others. He founded Paul Hobbs Winery in 1991 and Viña Cobos in 1999. Twice named Wine Personality of the Year by Robert Parker, Jr., he continues to be a leading consultant winemaker around the globe.
