Owner description: The Hawkes Family has been growing grapes in the Alexander Valley for forty years. Today, the Hawkes family farms over eighty-five acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay vineyards in the southern half of Alexander Valley, all planted on sparsely-soiled hillsides, all yielding small amounts of intense fruit. In bottling small lots of Hawkes Wine, we aim to translate our extraordinary standards for the quality of our grapes into extraordinary wine, estate grown and produced in Alexander Valley, Sonoma County. You'll know if you've had our wines. We're here drinking wine every day, come join us!

We went to Hawkes because a friend of ours had left another winery and we found out that she went to work for Hawkes. We made an appointment and went. To see Mandy again was special, but the single vineyard cabs were to die for. The quality of the wines were exceptional. Not being big cab drinkers, we were amazed with these wines. Our wine cellars consist of several hundred bottles and several bottles of cab. Since visiting Hawkes, our cab collection has increased quite a bit. Thanks Mandy and Jake for a wonderful time.

We really liked the Cabernet Sauvignon and the people are friendly and not snooty like other wineries in Napa.

We visited several wineries over the weekend and this one had some of the most incredible wines I've ever had. We loved every wine! The Chardonnay was so buttery and ALL the cabs were delicious. The hostess was fun and accommodating. There isn't a vineyard to look at but it's right next to Jim town which is also yummy!

I had an incredibly enjoyable stop at the Sonoma tasting room. The woman that helped me was so friendly and welcoming. The chardonnay is delicious and I wish I could have bought a case! I am hoping to be able to return for one of the winemaker's dinner in the future! Thanks so much for making my day!

Had called ahead for a large party and were told to show up and tastings would not be a problem. We arrived and were greeted by Andrea who immediately told us that we needed an appointment and should just buy some bottles of wine and sit outside (there was an outdoor music event that had not yet started). We assured her that we had the appropriate arrangements, so she proceeded to ask the man we spoke to on the phone, came back to us and stated "He said he told you that you needed an appointment" at which point we were so turned off by her unprofessional manners and left to go to Medlock Ames - which I highly recommend.
