“Liberty School represents our version of the American dream”

Live Your Roots

Made by and for those who carve their own path, Liberty School represents our version of the American Dream. It awakens the spirit in all of us to be and do better, not because we have to, but because we want to. It is this spirit of independence and innovation that led generations that came before us to farm grapes in the once-unknown region of Paso Robles, laying the groundwork for what would become a world-class wine region.

Liberty School honors our family’s roots with an undying dedication to making quality wines. Wines that are made to be shared and enjoyed with the family we are born with and the family we choose. We make wines for those who stay true to their roots and embrace the journey in life.

While our techniques have evolved and refined over the years, some things have remained very much the same: Austin Hope’s commitment to success, aversion to failure, and stewardship of the land are the same principles that his grandfather instilled into the family business four decades and three generations ago.

Vineyard Notes

Like the iconic label itself, we source from iconic vineyards in Paso Robles for our Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon. Known and established, these vineyards have always grown good Cabernet. It’s what they do. It’s a perfect fit.

These vineyards were growing long before Paso Robles had sub districts in the appellation but now reside in the Geneseo District, Pomar District and Estrella District.

In particular, one vineyard sits within two district boundaries and overlooks the Huer Huero Creek. The Huer Huero creek is an ephemeral underground stream which flows directly to the Salinas River and its Spanish name, Huer Huero, translates to “rotten”, specifically rotten eggs which refers to the odor in the sulfur water. Ephemeral streams flow only for a short time, usually after a large storm when there is an increase in water runoff. As for the sulfur water, it, too, is an iconic symbol of Paso Robles once known for its Hot Springs Spas and Retreats.
