Quality Family Time

Calm down back there or I'll turn this bottle around!

You have to appreciate a vineyard like Hughes Family Vineyards. It’s a family operation! It makes you think of family every time you tip back a glass from this Zinfandel Vertical 3-pack.

Your eyes close and your mind goes towards that particular gathering when Uncle Art asked if you were gay, since you never brought a date. Or that time your brother convinced you to try to do an atomic pushup. Or that time your sister’s boyfriend got into an intense political argument with your grandma that devolved into furious, obscenity-laced tirades about the state of the country and whose generation was at fault for the chaos.

Come to think of it, maybe you shouldn’t think of family. Maybe focus on the deep fruit flavors and aromas of butterscotch and white chocolate mousse.

Winegrowing: Hughes Family Vineyards are certified organic and have been sustainably farmed since they were first planted. Our vineyards are managed by Phil Coturri, the north coast’s preeminent organic viticulturalist. As such, no synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides or pesticides are ever employed. Weeds and pests are controlled with integrated cover crops that attract beneficial insects and bring unwanted populations into balance. The result is healthy soils, today and for generations to come.

Winemaking: We are fortunate to have as our consulting winemaker Rolando Herrera, a veteran of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, Chateau Potelle, Vine Cliff, Paul Hobbs and his own label, Mi Sueño. An avowed non-interventionist, Rolando’s aim is to respect the characteristics of each vintage, and never manipulate a wine into something it is not. If his countless awards and accolades are any measure, it’s a philosophy that has served him well.

Winery Details

Hughes Family Vineyards

Owner:
Keith & Cherie Hughes
Founded:
2001
Location:
Glen Ellen, CA

Hughes Family Vineyards is a boutique winery producing premium Zinfandel, Syrah, Rose' and Chardonnay wines. Our Zindfandel and Syrah varietals are made exclusively from the grapes grown in our certified organic vineyards in Glen Ellen, California.

Keith and Cherie Hughes pursued a shared vision in 2001 with the purchase of two organic vineyards in Glen Ellen, California. Initially, their intention was to grow exceptional fruit, a goal that evolved into making superb wines that reflect the unique terroir of their land.

Before coming to the Sonoma Valley, Keith and Cherie made their home and pursued individual careers in Dallas, Texas. Keith was Chairman and CEO of Associates First Capital. A Ph.D. clinical psychologist, Cherie worked with children, adolescents and their families in her private practice and also acted as a consultant to schools, developing a school violence prevention program.

Today, Cherie and Keith work together to manage Hughes Family Vineyards. "It is extremely important to us to be involved every step of the way - from the flowering of buds in the spring, to harvest in the fall, to enjoying our great wines with our friends and family."
