"Summer Moments" Photo Competition

Summer Moments Photo CompetitionSummer is generous with longer days, warmer weather, the chance to be out of doors, and more time with family and friends. We hope your Summer has moments that feel singular and sweet, where you are captivated by a good book or have the chance to catch up with old friends or find yourself on the beach or shore and time stands still, or enjoy the restorative quality of being in nature. And we hope that Hafner wine is a beneficial accompaniment. We’d love to see how you capture that special Summer moment! We have launched a photo competition that will run until September 6th. Check out the details and some fun examples!

A Photographer's Perspective

Wine PhotographyWe are lucky to be the experimentation ground for our friend and budding photographer Chris Bingham. Over the past years, Chris has been honing his photography skills here at Hafner Vineyard whether it be out in the vineyard during Harvest or in the cellar for bottling or on the hillsides in the midst of fires. Last Harvest, Chris took his photography experiment here to a new level by focusing on “stop motion photography” during the post-fermentation draining of Cabernet. The images are evocative and dramatic. We wanted to share the photos with you and give you a little peak into this artist’s life.

Bud Burst

Dave Huebel at Hafner VineyardWe are constantly reminded that farming has us at the will of Mother Nature and this year is no different. We thought it would be interesting to take you out into the vineyard and share with you what is happening now. Just a hint… we are anticipating early bud burst, one of the earliest I’ve ever seen, which means we are busy being strategic about pruning and mowing. I hope you enjoy this video.
