Larry Hyde founded Hyde Vineyards in the heart of the Carneros Napa Valley AVA in 1979. It consisted of 100 acres, but has grown in size over the years to 192 planted acres. Hyde Vineyards has been listed in the “top five California vineyards” and has long been hailed as a grand cru-caliber site, primarily known for its Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fruit, used by some of the most highly acclaimed wine producers in Napa and Sonoma Valley. In 2009, Larry debuted his own small production Pinot Noir program and the dream of owning his winery was born. Today, the Hyde’s own an estate winery showcasing several varieties from their unique terroir and Larry’s wine embodies the love and dedication to the land he so proudly farms.
