We are a small, husband-and-wife team, and Hibou—/ee-boo/—is our creative wine project. We are first-generation vintners, we are making wines without prescription or precedent, honored to guide excellent fruit into compelling wines. The portfolio comprises limited-production California Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon from “hidden gem” vineyards, wines intended to be as thrilling to drink as they are to make. Each bottle of Hibou is an act of discovery, the telling of a unique story, and a convivial experience to share.
This is our family’s lifework, as much a creative exploration as it is a wine business. Doing what we love and doing it together, Hibou is a hands-on journey every step of the way: Seeking out the most exceptional vineyards, forging meaningful relationships with our growers and our members, and making honest, expressive wines in an intimate, responsive way. We aspire for Hibou to be genuine and enduring, free of timelines and expectations.
