Want the dream getaway weekend in Napa? Drink some amazing wine, stay at an amazing boutique hotel, partake in an interactive cooking experience, dine with a winemaker, go on a hot air ballon ride and have luxury transportation!
Hesperian is a winery I recently learned about and was SO glad I did. The story and the passion behind the owner and winemaker, Philippe Langner, is incredible! He is passionate not only about wine but the farming behind the wine. Philippe grew up learning about farming from his family in Colombia and Zaire. So his passion for farming came at a very young age. Since then Philippe has lived all over the world and has been able to farm and experience many different terroir. (Of which he spent a very long stint in Bordeaux.) After traveling and living many different places, California is the place Philippe has decided to settle and now calls home!
Hesperian wine is low production because the vineyards yield only 2 tons per acre in a good year. This is where Philippe's passion really shows through. He believes if you truly know your terroir you are able to affect the quality of the wine. This really shows through in the most recent vintage I was able to try! The wines are AMAZING! Philippe is truly an amazing wine maker and his love for wine and the vineyard really shows through in his wines. Sign up for the mailing list and I promise you won't regret it! Also, with it being such low production, grab it while you can because I know once this word is out on Hesperian, the mailing list will turn into a waiting list to buy this wine!
