ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Hoopla Yountville Napa Valley Chardonnay
Hoopla Yountville Napa Valley Chardonnay shows classic notes of fresh pineapple, ripe pear, and Fuji apple with a lovely warmth and creaminess in the mouth from aging sur-lie in tank without the introduction of oak. This mid-palate breadth yields to an open, clean, and refreshing finish.
This wine is delicious with roast chicken and buttery mashed potatoes, fish tacos, Chinese chicken salad, lobster mac and cheese, triple crème Brie slathered on French baguette and salt & pepper flavored kettle-cooked potato chips.
About Hoopla Wines
Hoopes Vineyard is a small, family-owned winegrower and producer with deep roots in Napa Valley. The estate is now run by the second-generation proprietor, Lindsay Hoopes. Raised on the farm by her wine-loving family, Lindsay learned how to cultivate grapes and promote Napa’s sense of place and terroir through her father, Spencer Hoopes. Spencer Hoopes loved farming and developed a passion for wine as the wine industry in Napa blossomed right around him.
Hoopes’ vineyards are heritage vineyards, mostly from the 1980s and 1990s and grafted from “suitcase” clones of unknown origin. They are very unique to Napa’s early heritage. Indeed, Hoopes has the oldest pre-phylloxera vineyard in Oakville. That site in particular remains a sought-out destination by wine educators and enthusiasts alike because it is a telescope into some older farming techniques and Napa’s agricultural history. This vineyard is Hoopes’ flagship vineyard and was the fruit source for the first vintage of Hoopes Family Vineyard wine. They still farm and produce from this vineyard today.
Hoopes cares deeply about sustainability efforts and intends to shepherd the land for multiple generations to come. All of their vineyards are Certified Organic or are undergoing certification. The vineyards are working, regenerative farms complete with animals, water recycling systems, and bio-diversity practices aimed at enhancing the overall health of their vineyard ecosystem.
Yountville is an AVA (American Viticultural Area) in California’s world-famous Napa Valley. It enjoys an enviable location at the very heart of the Napa Valley, halfway between the northern shores of San Pablo Bay and the southern slopes of Mount St Helena. Yountville’s top wines, made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, are some of the most sought-after in California.
The AVA surrounds the town of Yountville that lies partway between Napa town and the village of St Helena. Most of the vineyards are situated on the Napa Valley floor, although in the western part of the AVA, vines are planted on rocky, undulating slopes in the foothills of the Mayacamas mountains. Yountville is surrounded by some of Napa’s most famous subregions: to the north lies Oakville, to the west Mount Veeder, and to the east Stags Leap.
Yountville is named after George C. Yount, the settler who planted Napa’s very first vineyard at Rancho Caymus in the 1830s. Yount’s land holdings grew to encompass what is now one of the most valuable stretches of viticultural real estate in the Americas. Rancho Caymus (from which the modern-day Caymus Vineyard in Rutherford takes its name) covered the land now divided into Rutherford, Oakville, and Yountville. A later acquisition, Rancho La Jota, was situated on the eastern slopes of Howell Mountain. The modern-day La Jota winery was founded there in 1898.
