Pope Valley Winery was founded in 1897 by Ed Haus. His original farm house still graces the property, as well as a blacksmith shop, complete with the tools of the trade. The winery itself is housed in an historic building that was designed to utilize the slope of a hill to move the grapes through the process of becoming fine wine, long before electricity was brought to the site.

Now operated by the Eakle family, Pope Valley Winery produces 5,000 cases of some of the finest wines in the Napa Valley, all of which are from estate grown fruit, with some from vines that are nearly 70 years old.
