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 Virtual Tasting

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.

We (Parke and Sarah) wanted to share a look back over the Harvests to share some stories, what has changed and what is the same. We also share some photos from the archives from the early 1980s. We hope you enjoy it, and we are excited what the next 40 Harvests hold.
