Update 1: 50 Years, 50 States & You

Summer Patron CollageTo add to the fun of our 50th Anniversary, we launched “50 Years, 50 States & You” photo contest. We invite you to take a photo of Hafner wine and yourself with something iconic from the state where you are. We have received some great photos! People are showcasing their states in many different ways – with gorgeous scenery, delicious cuisine and even typical attire. Each state will have one winner. The winning photos will be the ones that are the most iconic to that state. 


50 Years, 50 States & You

Hafner Summer PhotoTo celebrate our 50th Anniversary and summer vacations, we have launched a photo contest: “50 Years...50 States...and You”. We thought this would be a fun opportunity to celebrate our patrons, our anniversary and our country. The goal is to take a photo that includes you and your friends, your state (or one you are visiting) and Hafner wine. The photo should capture something unique and iconic about the state. It could be a building or natural landmark, the state flower, a local cuisine or perhaps even a state personality. Be creative!


New Capsules

Hafner Reserve ChardonnayYou may have noticed a small change to the capsules on our Reserve Chardonnay. The capsule isn’t just to provide a clean, secure covering for the also provides the clue to what’s inside. Since our first bottling of the 1982 Chardonnay, we’ve printed the vintage year on the end of the capsule to help patrons identify the vintages in their cellar. Beginning with the 2014 Reserve Chardonnay, we’ve added another identifier to help patrons. 


50th Anniversary Lunch

Lunchtime at Hafner VineyardTo kick off our 50th Anniversary year, all of us who work in the vineyard and winery, gathered for a fun lunch on January 23rd, to toast and mark the occasion. It was a cold day, but thankfully without rain during lunch, and we gathered in the oldest building on the property, “The Shop”. At one long table, surrounded by farming equipment, warmed by a heater and lit by French bistro lights, we marked the occasion by opening a jeroboam of 1982 Cabernet Sauvignon – our first vintage.


Hafner Patrons' Holidays

Hafner PatronsNovember and December find us busily shipping gifts to patrons’ families, friends and colleagues across the country. And also to patrons themselves for special Holiday gatherings. Late December and early January always bring happy evidence of those earlier orders. The big winner this year? Hafner Cabernet and especially magnums! We received photos of wine lovers enjoying Hafner Cabernets from 1996, 2000, 2006 and 2011. Check them out!
