Douglas & Tiffany Yarris

Proprietors, hope and grace wines

Dr. Doug Yarris and his wife Tiffani, natives of the wine country, are immersed in the winescape with their small vineyard in the Napa Valley.  The passion was realized almost a decade ago with the creation of hope & grace wines, with Tiffani and her business partner, winemaker, Charles W.  Hendricks. Today, their annual production is approximately 3,000 cases per year, which includes Pinot Noirs, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignons, and Chardonnay. The winery’s tasting salon is located in the charming town of Yountville, Napa Valley.  Their winery is committed to the future of the Napa Valley through the preservation and enhancement of its land, wine and community. Dr. Yarris, affectionately known as Dr. Doug throughout California’s Wine Country, operates a successful dentistry practice, specializing in cosmetic procedures. Dr. Yarris is a member of numerous boards, with a profound passion for education and philanthropy. Proud UCSD Parents, the Yarris’s greatly value the outstanding education their son Travis received from UCSD; a neurobiology major and recent graduate from UCSD Class of 2011. Today, Travis has joined the prestigious Trinchero Vineyards International wine lab while he contemplates a future career unfolding in medicine, viticulture or a combination of the two.
