Randy and Krys Wolff have been farming grapes in the Napa Valley for over a decade under the Wulff Vineyards name. They have three vineyards - two in the Oak Knoll appellation (one planted with Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon), and one in the Atlas Peak appellation. For several years, the Pinot Noir was sold to Mumm. In 2007, a Lobo label was launched with the release of a 2007 PInot Noir and now also produce Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines are made at Judd's Hill MicroCrush.
Lobo is the Spanish word for "wolf," which honors the heritage of this farming family. The vineyard manager is Mario Bazan and the winemaking team includes Kenn Vigoda of Judd's Hill (Pinot Noir), Randy Lewis (Chardonnay) and Victoria Coleman (Cabernet Sauvignon).
The wines are sold online. 707-224-8322.
