PB Hein Vineyards: winery information
Winemaker: PB Hein
PB is a fifth generation Napan with roots into viticulture and wine making dating back 129 years to 1879 when his three times great grandfather, PJ Hein, had 29,000 vines on Mount Veeder.
Paul's approach to wine making is to produce an extremely small lot, 1 ton or so, as a test to prove out both the vineyard and the wine making method prior to releasing any wine for production.
Paul believes strongly in old world wine making: small lots, bin fermentation and as little mechanical intervention as is humanly possible. No huge stainless steel vats, no mechanical pump-overs. Being 'hands on' with each bin allows us to produce the highest quality wines possible, albeit in small quantities. The largest batch we have produced to date is only 400 cases.
Annual Production: 1,000 cases
47 acres in Deer Park, St. Helena.
