Hafner Vineyard

Our Blog - The Press

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. 


Rainy January

Rain at HafnerIn the past few weeks, California has experienced a series of rain storms, which has brought much needed precipitation to our dry (and thirsty!) state after years of drought. Here in Alexander Valley, the rainfall has been consistent with about one inch per day – some days heavier and some days lighter. Here is an interview with Winemaker Parke Hafner and Vineyard Manager Dave Huebel with their perspectives on the impact of the rain on our vineyards and ranch.


Hafner Next GenOn Saturday, we had our annual Next Generation Harvest Party. Since we sell all our wine direct to people at home, this is one way that we introduce the next generation to Hafner Vineyard. We welcomed 120 guests to the winery where people tasted wine, nibbled on snacks, joined mini wine classes, shared their Hafner stories, added descriptors to the wine wheel and more. It was a perfect Fall day and a great way to toast the end of Harvest. Thanks to all who joined us!
