Hill of Tara Cabernet Sauvignon

Hill of Tara Wines began in 2015 shortly after we first started dating. Danny was offered to farm Nicholas Vineyard; an old, shanty property with a million dollar view in Sonoma Valley. It was this fortuitous opportunity to farm and rebuild this vineyard that significantly grew his appreciation and love for organic farming. We created such special memories at Nicholas Vineyard. It was where we had our first date - Danny taught me how to prune my very first vine and carved my initials in its stake. It was where we'd spend most summer evenings with a pizza and a bottle of wine watching the sunset. It was where Danny proposed to me, right in front of the vine that I pruned with his initials added to the stake. For us as a brand, it is where the seed for Hill of Tara Wines was planted and our foundation was formed. Our wine adventure began.

We dove head first into building our dream, together. In 2015, while continuing to rebuild Nicholas Vineyard, we purchased one-ton of Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from MoonRidge Vineyard, a striking property sitting at 2,300 ft. elevation within the Moon Mountain District of Sonoma Valley. After four years of patience, commitment, pure passion, and guidance from our mentors, our first vintage came to life.

These two barrels have rewarded us with a wine we are beyond excited to share with our closest friends and newest followers. We feel very humbled for this moment and can't wait to release our 2015 Hill of Tara Cabernet Sauvignon into the wild! We thank each and every one of you for your support on our journey.
