Our estate grown, hand crafted 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.

Meg & Peter Heitz

  • 2013 Quilie’s

    Planted in 1950 in green serpentine soil. Organically dry farmed. Delicate with compelling balance. Lifted red fruit, spice box and intensity while detailing restraint.

  • 2013 Twin Rock

    Planted in 1945 at 1700 feet in red volcanic clay. Grown without irrigation, these old vines struggle. The result is gorgeous. Not to be missed. Seriously.

  • 2013 Amelia’s Block
    Petite Sirah

    named after our daughter, Amelia Heitz who helps craft this wine. In the vineyard she helps her grandfather ‘Nonno’ tend to the vines. Opaque & rich in color. Aromas and flavors of ripe huckleberry, boysenberry and brown sugar. Magnificently judged ripeness, seemingly on the cusp of end-season richness, yet still married to early season freshness. Remarkable. 4 barrels produced.

  • 2013 Olivia’s Block

    Sourced exclusively from our estate block of Sangiovese, named in honor of our niece, Olivia Meyer, great, great granddaughter of Michael and Louise Heitz who planted roots in this soil in 1904. Crushed Raspberries. Toasted vanilla. Fresh, bright, elegant. Nearly perfect.  4 barrels produced.

  • 2013
    Cabernet Sauvignon

    these vines prove why the Napa Valley is known for some fantastic Cabernets. Aromatic. Powerful, yet elegant. Dusted summer blackberries and creme de cassis. Fine-tuned French Oak is in perfect balance, creating a stage that this amazing fruit plays upon. Silky tannins detail the singularity of Napa Valley Cabernet. 6 barrels produced.

  • 2012

    2012 Napa Valley, Calistoga, Charbono  So tasty we can’t write an expansive note about it or you might want some and there isn’t enough to go around. Seductive. Black cherry, pomegranate, and dark plum. Heirloom romanticism & south of France allure. Transcendent. 12 barrels produced.

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 below belonged to Peter's grandfather.  It is featured on our label to signify the harmony of Shypoke's farming and winemaking practices.
