Chardonnay Harvest Video

Chardonnay Harvest at HafnerHarvest is always an exciting time here. It means early mornings for the vineyard and cellar teams, the smell of fermentation throughout the winery and the prospect of another vintage. We wanted to take people behind the scenes of the Chardonnay Harvest and give you an insider’s look at how the grapes are picked by machine, processed and made into wine. Check out the video here.

DIY Gift Tags

Hafner Gift TagsThe Holiday Season is always filled with fun festivities: decorations, twinkling lights, dinners, and of course, gift wrapping. Gift tags put the finishing touch on a present and I always save mine year to year. I also enjoy creating new ones each year from the watercolors I've painted. For me, the gift tag enhances the wrapping and makes the gift more enticing. We thought it would be fun to share one of my gift tags templates that you can print and use this Holiday Season.

Race Against the Rain

Hafner Vineyard Oct. 20, 2021In farming, we generally have a plan, but that is often dictated by weather. That was certainly the case last week as we started seeding our cover crop. We've been in a drought and were pleased to see the forecast for rain. However, that meant consolidating five days worth of work into hopefully two! This type of situation is one I thrive in. For me, work is a lifestyle and farming is about dedication, determination and focus. We knew what needed to be done and we did our best. We hope you enjoy reading about our two days of race against the rain and a wonderful surprise of dinner delivery on the tractor.

Fall Releases When we released our 2019 Chardonnay and 2017 Next Red, we invited patrons to join us for a virtual tasting of these two wines as well as a few Library vintages. We tasted the wines and looked at how the wines age and develop over time. We also shared how Winemaker Parke Hafner determines when to harvest and some scenes from our Chardonnay Harvest. We hope you enjoy the recording.
