Best American Wineries: Hobo Wine

“We love Hobo Wine, a company based in Central Coast California. They are a 1% for the Planet member with a major focus on organic, sustainable, low-intervention wines. Some of what they produce are straightforward crowd-pleaser wines (like the Ghostwriter Pinot Noir); others are more of a hand sell (like the White Light, a blend of Tocai Friulano, Riesling, Verdelho, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gewurztraminer). Also, the labels are insane.” —Kylie Monagan, Partner/Wine Director, Civetta Hospitality (Amali, Calissa, Bar Marseille), NYC and Water Mill, N.Y.
