800 feet high in the Mayacamas Mountains, north of the picturesque town of Sonoma, Hanzell Vineyards was founded in 1953 with a vision of making great Californian wine of intensity, grace and longevity. Today, as yesterday, Hanzell Vineyards grows and makes chardonnay and pinot noir from their estate vineyards that drape the hillsides next to the narrow, winding drive up to the classic 1950s winery. Adhering to the traditions of artisan winemaking, Hanzell Vineyards hand-crafts its wines as few still do today.

Hanzell Vineyards continues the Zellerbach vision with wines of intensity, grace and longevity prized by collectors and connoisseurs from around the planet.
