Popie Wines

Popie WinesPopie Wines is a hand crafted boutique winery producing award winning wines.

Since 1922, three generations of the Duarte family have worked in the Napa Valley growing high quality grapes that have produced award winning wines. I am the fourth generation Duarte continuing the family growing tradition, here in Placer County, my father (Richard "Popie" Duarte) has taught me.

2006 found me completing the cycle, "from soil to bottle", not just as a grower, but now as a winemaker as well. Over the years I have learned that "wine is truly made in the vineyard". Our vineyard is family managed, maintained and sustainably grown allowing us the control to produce exceptional wines. I am now taking my family heritage to the next step in producing what I hope to be well made enjoyable wines from our Duarte Family Vineyards.
