Pope Valley Winery Description

Ed Haus founded the Pope Valley Winery in 1897. The original farmhouse still graces the property, as well as a blacksmith’s workshop and the historic winery itself with a hand-dug cave. The Eakle family now runs the winery and lovingly produces 5,000 cases a year of some of the finest wines in the Napa Valley. All of their wines are from estate-grown fruit, with some from vines that are nearly seventy years old. Pope Valley Winery is noted for its Old Vine and Late Harvest Chenin Blancs and their Eakle Ranch Merlot. Both are artfully delicious fruit wines that compliment food beautifully. They also produce an award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Sangiovese, Sangiovese Rosé, Zinfandel, and Zinfandel Port. 

The Pope Valley Winery is along a winding country road, up an unpaved drive, and past Gus a big, friendly, chocolate lab. Here you will be treated less like a visitor and more like a friend. The winery is a bit of a drive to get up to, but that is all apart of the experience. The road allows visitors to wind through picturesque fields, undulating vineyards and oak-studded hills, so that one gets the feeling of being transported back in time. The pace here is slower, more peaceful than the flurry and commotion found along the main thoroughfares of the Napa Valley. Photo opportunities present themselves around every bend in the road. The bubbling sounds of Haus Creek can be heard as visitors roam the grounds of this historic winery, admiring the views and restored buildings. Pope Valley Winery offers picnic grounds, a bocce ball court, and a horseshoe pit for guest’s enjoyment. There are cheese baskets also available for purchase A visit to Pope Valley Winery allows wine lovers to step back in time and experience 40 acres of history.
