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.
