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.


Sustainable Gift Wrapping

Bottle Wrapping IdeasWith the Holidays approaching, Sarah wanted to share a few ways that we wrap wine bottles in sustainable, reusable way. As a family, we use kraft paper (even paper bags), old maps and newspaper. It is fun to get creative, finding just the right material for the gift recipient. Sarah also shares a DIY printable wrapping paper for bottles using her watercolor drawings. 


Gift Giving

Hafner Vineyard Team HolidaysDuring the Holidays, we are constantly moving fulfilling gift orders of wine destined to homes across the country. We are tickled by the sweet notes that arrive from gift givers sharing why they give Hafner wine. These are wonderful reminders to us! It brings us pleasure knowing that we are helping to make patrons’ Holidays more exciting and joyful. Here we share just a few of the reasons why people give Hafner wine. Thank you for your kindness. We are honored to help with patrons' Holiday gift giving.

Laura grew up in Healdsburg but also spent summers in Mexico helping on her family's avocado 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!
