Survey Results

Marketing TeamWe love hearing from our patrons! It is not simply the pleasure of being in touch with thoughtful people who enjoy wine, but also it means we hear what patrons are thinking about and looking for. This Summer, we sent a survey to Annual Tasting Program patrons. We asked six to ten questions about the Program and our wines. The answers and the anecdotal feedback are invaluable and help us to make sure we’re satisfying our most important constituency...our patrons! We wanted to share some of the questions that were raised and our answers.

Update 2: 50 Years, 50 States & You

Hafner PatronsLast month we launched our “50 Years...50 States...and You” photo contest. Patrons have responded creatively and enthusiastically. It has been a treat for us here at the winery to be on the receiving end of the photos emailed or posted to social media sites. We almost feel like we’ve been on a cross-country trek ourselves! The goal of the photo contest is to have 50 photos, representing something iconic from each state and of course...Hafner wine!

Meet the Team - José Luis

Jose Luis"Meet the Team" is our blog series that introduces each of the Hafner Vineyard team members. We answer a series of questions about ourselves and our time at Hafner Vineyard. José Luis is celebrating his 25th year with Hafner Vineyard! He enjoys being part of the HV Team because his family has roots here. All four of his brothers and three of his cousins have worked here. In his spare time, José Luis is either tending to his numerous fruit trees or out at the local lakes fishing with his family. He's even teaching his grandson to fish!

Second Generation Interns

FrenchiesBack in 1981, the year before we built the winery, Sarah and I had the wonderful opportunity to be interns in Burgundy, France. There we learned new techniques and gained a new perspective that has greatly influenced the winemaking style of Hafner Vineyard. In 1985, we received a request from a young French enology student to work the harvest with us at Hafner Vineyard; thus began our internship program and friendships that now span generations. This year’s “internship” has been an exceptional one. Some would say that we’ve been invaded, but we consider ourselves lucky. Today, we have three (yes, three!) adorable, hard working and very hungry French kids living with us.

Summer Patron CollageTo add to the fun of our 50th Anniversary, we launched “50 Years, 50 States & You” photo contest.

People are showcasing their states in many different ways – with gorgeous scenery, delicious cuisine and even typical attire. Each state will have one winner. The winning photos will be the ones that are the most iconic to that state.
