Guests are received by appointment only. To arrange a visit please phone 707.996.3860 or email us. We offer two levels of visits to introduce individual guests and small groups to the Hanzell Estate.
Heritage Winery & Estate Vineyards
Hosted by one of our knowledgeable Estate Educators, we lead you through the original Ambassador’s 1953 Vineyard, the 1976 de Brye Vineyard and the more recently planted 2001 Ramos Vineyard. A discussion of our Grand Cru farming practices and the contribution terroir makes to our wine quality is followed by a walk through the historic heritage winery building, new state-of-the-art winery and barrel-aging cave. A seated tasting of our current release wines, Hanzell “Sebella” Chardonnay, Hanzell Vineyards Chardonnay and Hanzell Vineyards Pinot Noir, will conclude the visit.
$45 per person for groups of ten or less. For groups of more than ten, please inquire. Please allow ninety minutes. (fee waived for two guests upon enrollment in our Ambassador's Circle)
Hanzell Vineyards Wine Library
This unique experience includes all that is detailed above plus a seated tasting in which our Estate Educator opens rare vintages from our Wine Library. Four wines will be tasted: the current release Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and one bottle of each variety from selected vintages. This visit provides the best experience Hanzell offers: Ambassador's 1953 Vineyard, the Heritage Winery, our barrel-aging cave and the profound pleasure of tasting well-cellared Hanzell wines.
$150 per person, $600 minimum. Please allow two and one-half hours.
