Laurence (Larry) W. Hyde
Born into one of the oldest farming families in California, Larry Hyde came to the Napa Valley over thirty years ago with a great love of wine and the soil. In 1977, Larry left his job as an apprentice at some of Napa's finest wineries to purchase and transform the Carneros soils into what is now known as Hyde Vineyards.
With a family history in California wines dating back to the early 1800's, Larry brings to the partnership not only a long and rich tradition of viticulture, but also the cooperative spirit and integrity of the Napa viticulturists. For many years now, all who claim his acquaintance have enjoyed his relentless desire to share and exchange information learned in his vineyards in order to advance the quality of wines throughout the valley.
