  • 2012 Fallstreak

    Seventeen vintages in and we’ve grown into the freedom to make a red blend our flagship for the 2012 vintage. Infusion of Charbono, Petite Sirah, Grenache & Malbec. Opulence. Lifted, Elegant & Spectacular. 2 barrels produced.

  • 2012 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.

  • 2012 Olivia’s Block
    Sangiovese

    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.

  • 2012
    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
    Charbono

    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.
