Tour was super with a unique drive thru the property. The only disappointing thing was the wine. Only one pinot to taste was surprising. I've learned a lesson...before signing up for an expensive tasting confirm how many and what wines will be poured. My fault, not the winery's fault. But a lesson learned. Since we're there mostly for the pinot, it was a wasted part of the day for us.

We drove up the paved road through the vinyard up to the top where we were immediately met with glasses of Sabella (was really good). We were driven by our tour guide across the vineyards and farm which were beautiful, told about the history, and shown the wine-making facilities. Hanzell was the best Vineyard we visited during our vacation!

Did the farm tour which was a fantastic experience. The pigs were the best part -- so cute. Nice to get up into the land a bit and see the tremendous views. My one callout is that frankly the wine tasting at the end almost felt like an afterthought. $65 for 3 tastings (plus the welcome sip at the beginning) was a little steep.

Spectacular views. Favorite part was how the animals are incorporated into the upkeep of the property, and specifically the vineyards. Have not seen anything like that. Would presume that animals are more a part of European winemaking. Tasting setup offered a grea view of the mountains. Can’t wait to receive the wine shipment that we purchased.
