HRM Rex Goliath is named after a legendary 47 pound rooster that used to travel with a Texas Circus. “His Royal Majesty” (HRM) was advertised to visitors as the world’s largest rooster.
The Hahn Family was quite taken by this story, and in 2002, decided to name a line of wines after HRM. They have been making wine in Monterey County since 1980 and also own Hahn Estates and Smith & Hook. Shedding light on their fascination with HRM, Hahn translates to “rooster” in German.
Winemaker Mike Kafka crafts balanced wines that pair well with food. Kafka grew up in California’s Central Valley and has a deep appreciation for farming as well as fine wine and cuisine. He has a degree in Viticulture and Enology from Fresno St.
HRM Rex Goliath’s current releases include the 2005 California Chardonnay, 2006 California Pinot Grigio, California Merlot, California Pinot Noir, California Cabernet Sauvignon, and Central Coast Shiraz.
