Hyde & de Villaine Families
HdV is a family venture between Hyde Vineyards of Napa Valley and Aubert & Pamela de Villaine of Burgundy - Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. The families, related by marriage, share long histories in French and Californian winemaking. Producing some of the most coveted grapes in Napa Valley, Hyde Vineyards has gained distinction for its single vineyard wines. The HdV wines are hand crafted in the vineyard using the strictest philosophies of French viticulture.

HdV is bottled under the label that bears the coat of arms of the historic de la Guerra family from which Pamela Fairbanks de Villaine and the Hydes descend. De la Guerra is one of the oldest families in California and can trace its winemaking back to a gold medal received at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Fair. The partnership feels that this coat of arms symbolizes the sense of tradition, family, and winemaking history that the new venture embodies in its philosophy.

HdV Wines are sourced exclusively from Hyde Vineyards. Originally purchased by the Hyde Family over twenty-five years ago, Larry Hyde has gained national recognition for his viticultural talents growing grapes for some of the best single vineyard wines in the country. Hyde Vineyard was recently honored at the White House when, for the first time ever, several different wines from a single vineyard were featured over the course of a dinner.

The winery was designed and developed in every aspect to respect the fruit once harvested.

"The secrets to the wines of HdV are found woven into the detritus of attributes that blend together in nature's chaotic order." - R. Hyde, HdV President.
