Immortal Estate Wines

Can anything else taste as sweet as immortality? Of all earth’s creatures, only the immortal jellyfish lives on forever. As winemakers, we can aspire to create a wine that will stand the test of time. By dedicating ourselves to excellence in our pursuit of a wine that pairs infinitely well with life’s finest moments, we hope to create memories that will last forever. 

July 5 – 11

Hafner Vineyard

In 1967 Dick and Mary Hafner purchased 250 acres in Alexander Valley. 100 of those acres are vineyards; the rest are oak woodlands that are left for the flora and fauna.​ In September 1982 they were ready for their first crush with Parke at the helm. Now three generations of Harfners work together producing Chardonnay, Cabernet, a Malbec blend and Rose. Perfectly quoted by Parke, “if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.”

A true partnership forms from a connection but also the deeper set of values. Living a simple and balanced life of family, friends, nature and adventure couldn’t be anymore apparent in these wines and with this team.

July 12 – 18

Halleck Vineyard

“Building Community Through Wine.” The logo represents an H for Halleck. More importantly, it expresses “one-to-one”, depicted as Roman numerals. Fostering a personal connection with everyone who enjoys their wine. Viewing the dot as a grape, it has served as a plant of power for over 8,000 years, as wine is viewed as sacred in almost all the major religions…and for good reason. It has the unique ability to connect us, elevating a conversation and building community. Which the circle represents our community. True to their word and mission, Halleck Vineyard has been devoted to our world from day one and has raised over $750,000 for charities all over the world for causes dearest to the hearts of their Inner Circle members by creating experiences for auction.

July 26 – August 1

Front Porch Farm

In 2010 Peter and Mimi began to build a farm guided by the principle that diversity is nature’s basic pattern. They view farming as a symphony of life-affirming patterns; learning how to take care of the biotic community resident in their soils; orchestrating the succession of crops, each benefitting from its predecessor and using diversity as their guiding principle.

Meticulously farmed and certified organic, they aren’t just growing plants, they are supporting a whole ecosystem which takes time, experience and dedication – a true inspiration. Every bottle we’ve ever had from Front Porch Farm has carried through the astounding qualities it takes to make it – appreciating every glass and the team creating it.

August 2 – 8

Young Hagen Wines

From Minnesota to Southern California to Napa and Sonoma, with prestigious professional golf tours in between, Tim and Ali Beranek brought Young Hagen to life in 2013. Combined with a passion for wine and experience from Kosta Browne and Outpost Wines Tim brings his own unique style and approach to these wines, just as he did on the golf course.​ 

With the hand-dipped waxed tops (with help of their kids) to starkly beautiful labels and defined character Tim brings us stand out wines you will cherish.

August 9 – 16

Scherrer Winery

A simple philosophy – make a good tasting wine that will age well. Since their first vintage in 1991, Fred & Judi Scherrer have been creating handcrafted, full-flavored wines that express the personality of the unique Sonoma County vineyards where they are grown.

From their hands on, honest winemaking approach to the vast knowledge and shared love for this craft, Scherrer Winery brings the consistent balance of simplicity and approachability to Region throughout their unique varietals.
