Throughout this year, we have been quietly working with one of the world’s more renowned winemakers. And today, we are officially announcing that Paul Hobbs has joined Brave & Maiden Estate as Consulting Winemaker. Paul brings his expansive expertise in growing and crafting wines – from Cahors, France to Mendoza, Argentina – to Brave & Maiden. And we couldn’t be more thrilled.
Several years ago, my wife and I happened upon a truly stunning winery in the Luján de Cuyo region of Argentina, Viña Cobos. Captivated by Viña Cobos’ unforgettable Malbecs, we had scant notions of one day working with its legendary founder, Paul Hobbs.
We are honored to have the indelible fingerprint of a winemaker twice named “Wine Personality of the Year” by Robert Parker, Jr. on our upstart winery. Paul’s unmatched experience and global perspective brings a level of knowledge and focus into our wine production that ensures every bottle of Brave & Maiden will represent the finest expression of our estate’s potential.
“Brave & Maiden is an estate with the potential to produce tremendous wines, while allowing me to really delve into this region and explore its promise.” – Paul Hobbs
With Paul on the team, we’re one giant step closer to establishing one of the finest wine producing estates in Santa Barbara Wine Country. More importantly, you will be increasingly pleased with the balanced, consistent, and exceptional wines from Brave & Maiden year in and year out.
