Hanzell Farm Tour and Tasting on 8/09/18 3:00 PM

It was easily in the top two of my favorite vineyards that we visited while in Sonoma and Napa. Both the tour and wine were well worth the money. The property was breathtaking, the staff was excellent (Whitney was our guide - she was beyond knowledgeable, friendly, and informative), and the wine was delicious. I have already recommended Hanzell to friends visiting the area in the fall.

The ambiance of the property is fabulous with gorgeous views. We loved the farm animals and learned so much about the winery's sustainable mission. The experience was wonderful.

Peter was an excellent host throughout the tour. My wife and I were a little surprised that both the farm and garden tour consisted of not stopping to see the garden . We were in a Range Rover and the guide said that's the garden over there and we were 30 yds away . Also there are a few farm animals which we never got out of the car. The price charged is too high for the experience

This was my second time visiting Hanzell Vineyards, and it was another great visit. I love seeing the progress they are making in their biofarming efforts, as well as the beautiful vistas. I liked their new tasting area, and of course the wine tasting. I really like that the tours are small and private, it's a nice change of pace from some of the larger and busier wineries.

Hanzell is my favorite winery in Sonoma! We live in Sonoma and recommend Hanzell to everyone who visits. They are friendly and knowledgable. There’s so much history and ambience. I love petting the animals. And the view of San Fran from the top of the vineyard is stunning. Last, but not least, the wines are fantastic!

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.
