About Hamel Family Wines

Family winery focused on limited-production, estate-grown wines from our Sonoma Valley and Moon Mountain District vineyards. Farming with organic and biodynamic practices, we are dedicated to producing wines that reflect a true sense of place and time.

Thank you for considering Hamel Family Wines during your upcoming Sonoma visit. Each Experience is privately led by an Estate Ambassador, includes a tour, and wine tasting, and can include food pairings. In addition, a “dry” tasting is offered for non-wine drinkers who are enjoying the Experience with others. All tours are appointment only, and are available Thursday through Monday.


At Hamel Family Wines, we strive to make great wine and to have fun doing so. We value quality over quantity, enjoyment over tedium and fostering long-term recurring relationships with our guests. We work hard to produce the highest quality wines in limited quantities from grapes grown on our Sonoma Valley and Moon Mountain District estate vineyards. We farm our vineyards with organic and biodynamic practices, always mindful of our role as responsible stewards of the land. We remain grateful for our guests, respectful of our neighbors and appreciative of the fine work that our team performs daily.

We've been coming to Sonoma / Napa 12x a year, since moving to the bay area. We are members at 4 different wineries. This is without a doubt, the best, most personal, most informative, and most amazing Sonoma wine experience offered. Period. Wines were amazing. Food was amazing. Thanks Zach for a great tour, and answering all of our questions.

From the moment we stepped out of our car onto the Badger-shaped shoe mats, we knew we were in a special place! The Badger theme and family feeling continued throughout the entire visit, with warm and attentive hospitality from Nick and Dawn along with delicious wines and tasty food pairings as part of our 3-hour Estate Reserve Tasting experience. And we joined the Badger wine clan!

Following the breathtaking and insightful tour, we were seated in the main area on the couches overlooking the beautiful vinyard and were given the most amazing samplings of wine and a charcuterie plate.

We loved our visit. We had a three hour tasting on Sunday morning and had the property to ourselves. Marty, the estate ambassador, was a fabulous host and Clinton cooked us a 4 course meal for the tasting that was incredible. All for only $100 a piece - amazing and our best visit in all of Sonoma or Napa!

Our exclusive and private estate tour, which includes a 4-pairing chef's tasting, was impeccable. Our guide warm, knowledgeable, and hospitable. The environment was beautiful, and the private room in the caves just over the top in terms of making us feel impeccably special. Our family name on the menu was too fun. An expensive tour/tasting, but worth it.

We had an amazing time. Micah was our Wine Ambassador. She had such a warm personality. She even greeted us at our car! We got a tour of the estate and had a 4 glass tasting. During the tasting they also offer fresh ricotta and crackers, which was a nice touch. We relaxed outside after our tasting since it was a gorgeous day. Will definitely be back. Perfect for special occasions.

Was prepared to dislike this place, since it's considerably more expensive than other, comparable places. Didn't happen. Staff was friendly, down-to-earth, knowledgeable and totally unpretentious. The quality of the wines and gorgeous ambiance made the experience worthwhile, even noteworthy crackers and cheese spread - would still be hanging out by the fire looking at that view if I could.

If you want a really special outing - go here - go for the full Experience. To be able to hang in this STUNNING building is worth the price of admission alone, fascinating to learn what they're doing (biodynamics) and a true family business with incredible mentoring, but its really all about the wine and the exquisite pairings - (even gasp gluten free). Regrets: not buying enough bottles for later
