The Story: Shypoke calls the Calistoga, Napa Valley AVA home. Their Estate vineyard is sited in the North-Western corner of the world famous Napa Valley on a bed of alluvial soil. The dirt to bottle history in California began in 1904 when Winemaker Peter Heitz’ Great Grandparents immigrated from Alsace, France and literally planted roots and built bonded winery #130 for the production of fine wines. Through nine generations of Alsatian and now five generations of California Vignerons, the Heitz family has built upon and honored the craft of tending unique soils and fusing the resulting fruit into uniquely elegant and honest wines of place and vintage.

“The origin of the ‘Keep’ name stems from an embarrassment of stunning Grenache. So what to do these fantastic barrels of Grenache asked the winemaker? An infusion of Charbono for baritone tannins, a fist pump of Malbec juicy fruit and the blue persuasion of old vine Petite Sirah weave their tales so nicely, all while exhausting to the red wafts of that Grenache perfection. Shypoke Keep is both interesting and delicious. Enticing aromatics lead to savory, red fruit tones while remaining fresh and focused.”
Winemaker Notes: “Deep dense color. Dominant blackberry and cherry flavors, hint of tar on the finish. Intense. Picked and fermented together aiming toward the blend that we have been honing in on for the past decade. Our estate grown Grenache, century old Charbono, ‘back breaker’ Petite Sirah and a fist pump of Malbec juicy fruit. The blue persuasion of old vine Petite Sirah & Charbono weave their tales so nicely, all while exhausting to the red wafts of that Grenache perfection. The result is both interesting and delicious. Enticing aromatics lead to savory, red fruit tones while remaining fresh and focused. Only 6 barrels were produced. Our personal go-to wine from the cellar, always delicious and pairs perfectly with life.”
