Hector Lopez has a family history of farming in the Napa Valley going back generations, so his interests naturally turned toward viticulture and the creation of Lopez Vineyard Management Company, where he oversees the care of the Padis vineyards in Oak Knoll.

Lopez’s career began at Caymus Vineyards, where he focused on hillside farming.  In 2003, he began specializing in boutique wineries, farming estates for such highly-regarded names as Switchback Ridge, Gargiulo Vineyards, and Robert Foley Vineyards. His long-time professional collaboration with winemaker Robert Foley has led to a point where Foley describes Lopez as “an extension of himself.”
