Winemaking

The role of “winemaking” at Hanzell is to nurture the process from grapes to wine without compromising the distinct qualities Mother Nature has so generously given us.  We strive to capture and illuminate the personalities of our diverse bio farm, greater surroundings, and people through the wines with an emphasis on harmony, verve, freshness, and structure. In keeping with our time-honored traditions, our wines are produced in small lots using state-of-the-art technology to manage fermentation and aging, while still keeping with the natural rhythms of the fruit and the wine.  All production processes are viewed through the lens of the land, with thoughtful consideration of the unique qualities each vintage wishes to express.  We are known for the age-ability and continuity of our wines and this is the core tenet at the root of our philosophy.
