Hafner Vineyard

Our Blog - The Press

Dream Job

People often say to all of us here: “You have my dream job!” They explain they would love to taste wines and walk the vineyard on a daily basis. Working close to the land in a beautiful agricultural setting strikes a chord with them. Being part of a small team that makes fine wine and gets it directly to patrons is a desirable occupation.

The most pleasurable part of the job for many of us, however, is our interaction with you, our patrons. And a great example of this are the delightful photos patrons send us and post online.

Recently patrons sent us photos of them enjoying….

  • Three generations of longtime patrons in the Sierra Foothills
  • Reserve Chardonnay to go with a salad of home grown arugula and tomatoes
