Lindsay has always been a wine enthusiast, due in large part to growing up on the vineyard. She grew up walking in the vineyards alongside her dad, Spencer Hoopes. Together the family spent many afternoons conversing about growing cycles and wine branding. This gave Lindsay a unique perspective.
Those afternoon conversations have served her very well in the wine business, where she is one of the youngest winery General Managers in Napa and one of a very small number of women who run wineries in the Napa Valley.
Lindsay has advanced degrees in business and law. She is a graduate of Phillips Academy, and Georgetown University. She has a Doctorate from Hastings College of the Law, and a LLM from Trinity College in Ireland. Before returning in 2013 to manage the family’s wine business, she completed the E&J Gallo Management Development Program, after which she was recruited by Williams-Sonoma to manage production and supply chain logistics for Pottery Barn throughout Asia, Europe and South America. Most recently she worked as an Assistant District Attorney in San Francisco.
An avid traveler, ski enthusiast, photographer, chef and lover of animals, Lindsay brings a genuine passion and spirit of adventure to the winery. Lindsay has been the General Manager of Hoopes Vineyard since March 2013.
