About Hyde De Villaine
Hyde de Villaine is a joint venture between Larry Hyde and Aubert de Villaine. Aubert is one of Burgundy’s most recognised individuals, as co-director of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and director of his own wine company, A. & P. de Villaine. Larry comes from one of oldest farming families around Napa and brings to the partnership more than 30 years’ experience in California . Together with winemaker Stéphane Vivier they apply the traditions of the Côte d’Or to the fruit of the Napa, thus producing wines of regional character with the minerality that is so dear to the Burgundian palate.
