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.

Current Wine Selections

  • Quilie’s

    Mendocino — Poor Ranch
    Planted in 1950 and farmed organically, without irrigation ever since. Delicate with compelling balance. Lifted red fruit, spice box and intensity while detailing restraint.

  • Olivia’s Block

    Napa Valley, Calistoga
    Sourced from our famous 1/2 acre Sangiovese block, where old school farming and porous soils create magic.  Muddled strawberries & dusted raspberries dance themselves clean.

  • Twin Rock

    Mendocino – Poor Ranch
    Organically grown on a ridge line of red volcanic soil and rock that was planted in 1945. These dry farmed, old girls create stunning aromatics of white pepper, red fruit and pretty lift in the wine. Gorgeous.


    Napa Valley, Calistoga
    The heirloom Charbono variety, hailing from the Savoie and grown with pride on our Calistoga ranch since 1904.  Pomegranate and dark plum cut a groove amongst tart cherries and roasted sage

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    Napa Valley, Calistoga
    Lifted, pure aromatics. Powerful, yet elegant. Dusted summer blackberries and creme de cassis. Silky tannins detail the singularity of Napa Valley Cabernet. Impeccable.

  • Amelia’s Block
    Petite Sirah

    Napa Valley, Calistoga
    Aromas and flavors of ripe huckleberry and boysenberry go for broke. Magnificently judged ripeness, seemingly on the cusp of end-season richness, yet still married to early season freshness. Remarkable

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.
