Bob Cabral has been involved in growing and making wine since his childhood helping his grandfather make wine. A fourth generation farmer and grape grower, he took all he learned at the family farm near Escalon, California and applied it to his degrees at Fresno State University.
A fan of Game of Thrones, Bob was challenged to craft wines to match the strength the characters and the terrain of their kingdoms. Bob's meticulousness and patience has yielded wine that embody the spirit of the HBO® series.
While Bob has made wine professionally for over 30 years, he believes he has not made his best wine yet. This coming from someone who planted and produced the first 100-point California Pinot Noir from the Williams Selyem Estate Vineyard where he worked for over 16 years, and has crafted more than 100 wines ranked in the 95 to 100 point category. In 2011, he was honored with the Wine Star Award from the Wine Enthusiast Magazine as Winemaker of the Year.
