HdV Wines – Hyde de Villaine was founded in 2000 by the de Villaine family of Burgundy and the Hyde family of California. The families winemaking histories collectively span four centuries fusing the finesse and balance of the Old World with the exuberance of California fruit.

Trademark minerality and structure (natural acidity) combine with HdV’s practice of harvesting at lower brix to allow the wines to compliment food – not compete with it.

In 2008, San Francisco Chronicle dubbed HdV as “King of the Carneros.

From the very first vintage in 2000, Hyde de Villaine (HdV) wines have shown their pedigree, merging the finesse and balance of Old-World winemaking with the exuberance of California fruit from the renowned Hyde Vineyard. Aubert de Villaine brings the rich traditions of France’s winemaking techniques, driving Hyde de Villaine’s viticulture and winemaking philosophy — one that embraces minimal intervention by the winemaker in order to express the varietal, the vineyard, and the vintage. Larry Hyde brings a legacy of family farming in California and over four decades of experience growing premium wine grapes in Napa Valley.
