Viņa Cobos: Bramare Appellation

Viña Cobos makes wines that are authentic expressions of the terroir from which they come. Paul Hobbs, founding partner and winemaker at Viña Cobos, has worked since 1988 in the exploration of the different terroirs of Mendoza, looking for the most distinguished regions in Luján de Cuyo and the Valle de Uco, to produce wines that uniquely express their origins.

Felino by Viņa Cobos

Viña Cobos is the inspired vision of Paul Hobbs, a pioneer who took on the challenge of crafting world-class wines on a level never before achieved in Argentina. Over the past twenty years, Hobbs and his team at Viña Cobos have dedicated themselves to seek out, study, and develop vineyard sites in the two premier growing regions of Mendoza: Luján de Cuyo and Valle de Uco. Through meticulous vineyard management and minimal intervention in the winemaking process, the Cobos, Bramare, and Felino lines express the true essence of their terroir with finesse, complexity, and authenticity.


We are thrilled to announce Paul's newest international partnership, Alvaredos-Hobbs, with the release of our inaugural vintages of 2018 Godello and 2019 Mencía, two indigenous varietals from the Ribeira Sacra D.O. in Galicia, Spain. The ancient winegrowing region of Ribeira Sacra, whose viticultural history traces back over two millenia to Roman times, and where vineyards still cover the steeply sloping hills along the winding Sil River, is where the town of Alvaredos is located. The godello & mencía grapes thrive in the incredibly rocky soils comprised of slate & granite. With vineyard slopes of more than 50%, each vine must be tended carefully by hand. Paul and his partner, Antonio López, have spent the last years working the vineyards, completing the winery, and building a local team, and today we are delighted to present you to this newest endeavor from this ancient and historic winegrowing region.


Founded in 2011 by acclaimed Malbec visionary, Paul Hobbs, and 4th generation Malbec de Cahors producer, Bertrand Gabriel Vigouroux, Crocus wines are a quest to redefine Malbec in its birthplace, combining old world, ancient terroirs with new world vision. Crocus takes its name from the famed Crocus Sativus flower, prized for producing the spice saffron. The Crocus flower has been grown and harvested in the Cahors region since the 14th century.


Internationally renowned winemaker Paul Hobbs, and the Yacoubian family journey to the Birthplace of Wine to craft modern, world class wines from the indigenous varieties found in the high altitude, mineral-rich soils of Vayots Dzor, Armenia. Their newly planted vineyards grow a stone's throw away from the Areni-1 cave, the oldest known winery dating from over 6,000 years ago. With their local team, Paul and the Yacoubian family are growing and crafting wines that confirm Armenia's part not only in the ancient history of winemaking, but its very relevant present and future amongst the great wine regions of the world.
