Hyde de Villaine | Napa Valley, USA
Hyde de Villaine (HdV) is an inspired venture between two families; the de Villaine family from Burgundy and the Hyde family of Carneros, California.
The project, based in Carneros Napa Valley between Larry Hyde and Aubert de Villaine, owner of Burgundy's legendary Domaine de la Romanee Conti, who is married to Hyde's cousin Pamela, was launched in the UK in 2010 and brings together a combined viticultural history spanning some 400 years.
This unique partnership of skills and cultures, have resulted in the production of some extraordinary Californian wines. They combine the finesse, elegance and refinement - commonly associated with European wines - with a balance of richness and vitality afforded by the relatively cool, windy climate of the Carneros region.
