Discover the excitement and history of winemaking


Temperature is a crucial element to serving wine, protecting its flavors and even enhancing its aroma. For red wines, it’s recommended at a temperature that allows the acidity to be discerned, but not so cool as to overpower the effect. Red wines do best just under 70 degrees, while whites generally perform much better just below 50. A good rule of thumb is a cooler temp for more lighter-bodied wines. Comes discover the excitement and history of winemaking on the picturesque hills of Templeton, here at Hidden Oaks.

Grapes are between 18 to 22 Brix. We pick between 24.5 to 26. That means we are less than one month away. In the 17 years Hidden Oak Winery has been picking grapes at our location. It’s the earliest in our history. Why? The weather has been ideal. Warm days, cold nights. If you want to taste the grapes before they are picked, you have to come by and I will walk you through the vineyard where you can taste the four different varietals we grow here.
