Our family has been growing grapes in the Alexander Valley for over forty years. Back then, people didn’t think about world class Cabernet when they thought about Alexander Valley. Now things are a little different. We farm three estate Cabernet Vineyards and have supplied grapes for some of the most famous wines ever made in California. In 2002, we made the first vintage of wine under our own name Hawkes 100% estate Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley, grown and crushed and barreled and bottled by our family.
