First impression is one of age and beauty, and a then a magnificent view. Learning about the history of the winery and its original owner, then the passdown within the family, reminds us that the earliest Sonoma wineries were pioneers. If you love Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Hanzell hits the spot.

If you are looking for a great tour and tasting of chards and pinots, you have to visit Hanzell. The views are spectatcular, the hospitality is first class, and the wines are some of the best you will enjoy from Sonoma. Make sure you see the farm animals and how they help make the wine!! This is must see winery and vineyard and worth every moment.

Totally blown away by our January visit! On a whim, we choose to visit Hanzell while on a very short trip Sonoma. We chose VERY well! Best tasting & tour ever! This property is incredible. If you love, like, or even if you don't typically like Chardonnay - this is the place for you. No heavy buttery and oaky flavors here. Balanced. Same goes for Pinot Noir - get ready for some good s*it!

Beautiful location overlooking the vineyard. Informative guide gave us all the facts about the winery's history and philosophy over a glass of Chardonnay. The speech was a little over-prepared/memorized. Sit down tasting was fun, 4 wines including a brand new Cabernet. The Chardonnays were excellent, the Pinot Noir well made just not to my taste. Tasting fees (x4) waived with wine purchase!

The drive to Hanzell is an experience itself and just whets the appetite as to what to expect. When we arrived no one greeted us initially, but we were first in the morning and only waited about 5 minutes before being warmly welcomed by a human and a wine cat! The staff was generous with her time and patient with all our questions. Oh yea - the wine was great.

We drove up on a stormy day, which accentuated the fall colors of the vines and made the air smell so fresh and clean. Our first view overlooking the vineyards was from the upstairs area and I must say that this is probably THE most beautiful view from a vineyard that I have ever seen. I know, you must be thinking that I am exaggerating. My answer to that is go and see for yourself.

Although the Trade business has indeed dropped off after Thanksgiving, Pete at Hanzell treated us - and especially me, in the Trade - like royalty. He is thoroughly knowledgeable in all aspects of his business and certainly went to his boss later with a good (case-plus) sale for his efforts. Thank you, Pete and I look forward to returning the favour at Bremer Estate. Douglas ~~""
