Our Blog - The Press

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. 


Meet the Team - Laura

Laura Bucio"Meet the Team" is our blog series that introduces each of the Hafner Vineyard team members. We answer a series of questions about ourselves and our time at Hafner Vineyard. Laura Bucio is our newest voice on the phones, joining our sales team. No stranger to customer service having worked at a local bank, Laura is quick to help patrons. 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!


French Intern Edgar

Edgar and SallyThe end of September is here as is the departure of our intern, Edgar Guignard, on Monday. Edgar hails from Cognac, France where his family has a vineyard, winery and distillery. As many of you know, we have a longstanding internship program; it began in 1985 when a friend of a friend asked me if we would host a French enology student. As former interns in Burgundy, France, Sarah and I understood how an internship could inspire and influence young people, so it was easy for us to say “yes!”. Edgar is our 37th intern. 


"Summer Moments" Photos

Hollywood BowlThis Summer, we invited patrons to share their "Summer Moments" with us that included Hafner wine. We were treated to dozens of entries to the photo competition. Thank you! The pictures captured every point of the compass, stretching everywhere in the United States. Every Hafner wine added to the fun: Rosé, both Chardonnays, Cabernet Sauvignon and the Next Red. We hope you enjoy these award-winning photos as much as we did and our sincere thanks to all who sent photos.
