The vines are starting to wake up. Our young Chardonnay block is in the "cotton swab" stage just before budbreak. Vineyard manager David expects to start seeing green leaves next week. Fingers crossed it doesn't get too cold! | 📷 by David this morning | #alexandervalley #sonomacounty #hafnervineyard #farmlife #familybusiness #vineyard

At our annual vertical tasting, we tasted eight vintages of main and Reserve Chardonnays. We are pleased at how the wines are aging and their consistency year over year. Check out our website to view the tasting notes in the coming weeks. #verticaltasting #chardonnay #hafnervineyard #alexandervalley #sonomacounty
We always enjoy receiving photos of you and your Hafner during the Holidays. What an honor for us! The Holidays often deplete cellars, so we went into our Wine Library and created some fun restocking Collections – ’10 Cabernet & ’10 Next Red, ’04 Cabernet in large formats or ’14 Chardonnay & ’11 Cabernet. To shop, see link in bio. #sharehafner
Meet Antonio! On our blog, he shares stories of his bountiful garden at Hafner Vineyard. A chef at heart, he uses the produce to make dinners for family and friends. The deal with his wife… he cooks and she cleans! He also reveals one of his fears when driving the tractor… spiders! Link in bio. #hafnervineyard #alexandervalley #sonomacounty
After the Holiday rush and excitement of gift giving, quiet descends on the vineyard and winery. Thanks to all who gave Hafner wine this Holiday Season. We hope everyone is enjoying time with friends and family this time of year.
Rise and shine.
