Charlie & Will Hoppes
1st and 2nd generation winemakers, Fidelitas | Wine Boss
This episode is Part 2 about the heralded Red Mountain AVA and the generational stories that carry these wines into the future.
2019 marked Charlie Hoppes’ 32nd vintage in Washington State—and a wine making enterprise he and his son, Will Hoppes, now share together. Charlie has a storied journey having worked with Mike Januik, Waterbrook Winery, Chateau Ste. Michelle, Col Solare, and Three Rivers Winery before founding Fidelitas on Red Mountain.
Will heads up the Woodinville tasting room and he joined his father this year in the vineyards and cellar. Together, they are building a multi-generational team whose best vintages are yet to come.
