About Hope Family Wines

Hope Family Wines is a family-owned and operated winery in Paso Robles, CA, encompassing five brands: Liberty School, Treana, Candor, Austin Hope and Troublemaker wines. The Hope family arrived in Paso Robles in 1978 and began planting wine grapes. Over time it became clear to the Hopes that Paso Robles was capable of producing world-class wines. They were among a handful of pioneering families who helped to shape and gain recognition for this distinctive winegrowing region. After growing grapes and developing vineyards throughout the eighties and early nineties, they began producing estate wines under the Hope Farms label. The Hopes established Treana Winery in 1996, to focus on regional blends from Paso Robles and the Central Coast. This same year, they incorporated Liberty School into their winery. In 2008, Hope Family Wines became an umbrella moniker to encompass the brands, which now includes Austin Hope, Candor and Troublemaker wines. To learn more, go to www.hopefamilywines.com.
