Paul Hobbs makes wines sourced from both Napa Valley and Sonoma…which may not be unusual, but the vineyards they make their wines from are quite exceptional.

During the Sonoma in the City event held in Chicago last March, we visited Paul Hobbs Winemaker Megan Baccitich and Marketing & Communications Manager Chris O’Gorman. We managed to sneek in a bit of time between the days activities to chat about these vineyards and the wines grown there.
