Wine for Wedding Gifts

Hafner Wine at WeddingsFinding the perfect gift for newlyweds can be daunting. Selecting off a registry is an obvious and safe choice but sometimes we find ourselves wanting to give something unique, something thoughtful, something we love, and something that they can enjoy to kickoff the new life together. Recently we’ve noticed Hafner patrons have found their solution to the perfect wedding gift… the Annual Tasting Program (our wine club). Wines come throughout the year, right to the newlyweds’ doorstep. It’s fun for the gift giver to give and the newlyweds to receive, giving them the opportunity to think back to their wedding.


Cork & Capsule Recycling Program

Cork and Capsule RecyclingHere at Hafner Vineyard, we are always looking at ways we can reduce our carbon footprint and create less waste. We try to look at each step in the process: growing grapes, making wine, bottling it and shipping it to you. Then we consider the final waste… the empty bottle which many people recycle, plus the capsule and the cork. We recycle those as well and we wanted to invite you to join us. Introducing our cork and capsule recycling program! All you need to do is follow a few steps in sorting your corks and capsules, box them up and ship or deliver them to us.


Next Gen Communal Table 2On Saturday, we hosted our 11th Next Generation Harvest Party. Since we sell all our wine direct to people at home, this is a fun way to introduce the next generation to Hafner wines. It was a perfect Fall day with Mother Nature tempting a sprinkle of rain but the sun peered through later in the day. Check out some highlights from the day. 


A View from Above

Hafner VineyardA few years ago, Uncle Scott encouraged me to become a “drone pilot”, so we could have some unique photos from above. This certainly pushed me out of my comfort zone, but the end result is always fun and dramatic. In my most recent flight, I took a number of photos, but one stood out to us. We work closely as a team between vineyard, cellar and sales. Everyone has a unique perspective given their role and experience, so we wanted to see what various team members thought of this photo and what they see. 


A Weekend in Mendocino

Mendocino TownThe charming coastal town of Mendocino was a favorite weekend getaway for my grandparents, Mary and Dick Hafner. They shared their love of the Mendocino coast with us, so my husband and I try to make an annual trip there. We've heard from patrons visiting us that they are often on their way up the coast to Mendocino, so we thought it would be fun to share some of our favorites with a Weekend Itinerary in Mendocino.
