Charles W. Hendricks
Over the years Charles has worked in both Napa and Sonoma Counties, gaining hands on experience in all aspects of winemaking. He has built a strong reputation for the passion of excellence throughout the industry. As a consulting winemaker for many exclusive wineries over the years, such as Viader, Barnett Vineyards, Paoletti Vineyards, Kuleto, and and Tamayo Family Vineyard, Charles has had the great fortune to develop relationships with some of the foremost producers in the industry. With these resources Charles is able to secure the finest fruit for his personal project hope & grace wines.
Today, Charles continues to consult for several clients, but is making more time to focus on hope & grace wines and his Yountville tasting room. While his daughters Grace and Hope, have both grown and lead their own lives, Charles has made Yountville his home. His passions for travel, fitness, music, and winemaking remain his hobbies.
Derived from a dream over a decade ago to a thriving artisan winery and Yountville tasting room in Napa Valley hope & grace began its journey as a winery in 2001 with a small production of Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands. Today we are a modest producer of 3,000 cases annually; focusing on limited production, single vineyard, 100% varietal Pinot Noirs, Cabernet Sauvignons, Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay & Dry Riesling.
With the passion, talent and expertise of 30 years of winemaking, Charles hand selects the finest grapes, combined with premium French Oak barrels to craft balanced, elegant, cellar worthy wines. Charles and business partner Tiffani opened their tasting room in the charming town of Yountville, in 2006, creating a beautiful and warm atmosphere for guests to visit and enjoy the hope & grace wine collection.
