Ed and Jeannine Embly
Owners, Hungry Hawk Vineyards & Winery
Ed and Jeannine Embly are the owners and proprietors of Hungry Hawk Vineyards and Winery, located in the northern San Diego town of Escondido, California. Their winery today is the result of a family farming background that goes back many generations. The hilltop, boutique winery started from scratch 12 years ago, with our son, Mike Embly as the winemaker and vineyard manager. Today Hungry Hawk Vineyards is one of San Diego County’s most acclaimed wineries.
“At Hungry Hawk vineyard management and winemaking stem from simple and basic principles. We apply minimalistic practices to all of our vineyard and winemaking processes, producing superb wines with little intervention” says Ed.
Today, Hungry Hawk Vineyards and Winery grows 15 varietals on their 10-acre estate. We’ve relied on a cohesive team, from vineyard to tasting patio, garnering numerous accolades along the way. Each year, up to 30 vineyard and vintage expressive wines are produced, ranging from Methode Champenoise Bubbly to Port Style wines. Each is artfully crafted to accentuate the soul and experience of the vintage, from vine to bottle.
