Hughes Family Vineyards - Sonoma County

Platinum Plus! selection - Gold Medal - Best of Bay Zin Competition

Keith and Cherie Hughes shared a vision of owning property in California wine country where they could one day manage their own vineyards and grow high quality wine grapes. This dream came true in 2001 when the Hughes bought a home and two organic vineyards in Sonoma County, located 850 feet above sea level and just above the storied town of Glen Ellen. The vineyards were planted to Syrah and Zinfandel, and it wasn’t long before the goal of growing grapes evolved into making superb wines that reflected their unique piece of land.

Before coming to the Sonoma Valley, Keith and Cherie lived in Dallas, Texas, where they pursued individual careers – Keith in the investment business and Cherie as a clinical psychologist for children, adolescents, and their families. Cherie also acted as a consultant to schools, developing a school violence prevention program. While both were successful, the Hughes longed to build a business together and decided that growing wine grapes seemed like the ultimate dream job.

After managing their premium Sonoma Valley vineyard for a couple years, the Hughes teamed up with acclaimed winemaker Rolando Herrera to start producing small batches of estate wine. Hughes Family Vineyards saw the light of day in 2003 with the inaugural release of just over 100 cases of Zinfandel, and they haven’t looked back since. The winery has grown steadily and will produce
around 1,000 cases this year.

It would seem that Keith and Cherie Hughes have found the ideal pursuit for their energies. They work together and produce truly exceptional wines that continue to garner prestigious awards and international critical acclaim. It is our pleasure to present this eagerly anticipated release to our Platinum Series Plus! members.
