Austin Hope has a simple goal: to make spectacular, estate grown Syrah and Grenache.
Aiming that high requires a dedication to quality at every step in the winemaking process. From the care taken in planting the Hope Family Vineyard, to the choice of coopers for barrels. That goal is more than a marketing slogan: it flows directly from the natural advantages of a perfect growing location in the Templeton Gap district of Paso Robles; the intense, flavorful fruit that comes from hand-farming the vineyard; and the skills of a highly talented winemaking hand overseeing it all.
These are wines to be proud of, wines to be enjoyed, wines with the elegance of the Old World and the power of the New.
2012 Austin Hope Syrah
The Austin Hope Syrah is grown on the Hope Family Vineyard, which is located 20 miles east of the Pacific Ocean in the Templeton Gap region. The site’s rocky soils of clay and limestone make it ideal for the Rhône varietals to which it is planted. The vines are managed carefully to keep cluster counts low, resulting in fruit with great intensity and rich in berry flavors.More Details »
