About the Huber Cellars

Elvis Elvis

Norman and Traudl Huber established Huber Cellars in 1986. Along with Sanford Winery and the Babcock Family, they were viticultural pioneers in the Santa Rita Hills AVA. Prior to his vinous aspirations, Norman was a master woodworker. He crafted the tasting room bars at nearby Fiddlehead Cellars and Longoria Wines.

In 1987, the couple began planting their vineyard almost exclusively with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. A few years ago, they also planted a small amount of an obscure German red grape called Dornfelder. This is an inky, tannic varietal.

Until 2000, all of the grapes grown in the vineyards were sold to other wineries. In that year, the Huber’s released a small amount of their first commercial vintage. Grapes are still sold to a handful of local wineries.

About the Huber Cellars

Huber’s Estate Bottled Pinot Noir is well structured, nicely balanced and is full of flavor. They usually produce under 100 cases per year, so the attention to detail is evident. Norman Yost assists the Hubers in the wine production process. Mr. Yost owns Flying Goat Cellars and boasts an education from the UC Davis Enology and Viticulture Department.
