Hartford Family Winery
An incredibly beautiful approach through softy rolling hills of vineyards lashed lushly with towering redwoods, about 15 miles from the cool coast and smack dab under the awesome, coveted influences of the Pacific Ocean, Martinelli Road wends its way to Hartford Family Winery, across a bridge to estate vines warmly encircling the lovely winery building and tasting room, home to exceptional pinot noir, chardonnay and old vine zinfandel, delicious wines of high personality, small-production, sourced from vineyards with adverse conditions that make the vines struggle to produce intense berries and wines with “character through adversity.” Hartford Court produces pinot noir and chardonnay; Hartford Family, zinfandel. Small lots of estate grown RRV pinot, chardonnay and zinfandel are offered as well as wines sourced from other Wine Road AVA’s and environs. The winery lends itself to providing warm hospitality and hosts its Wine Club members often during the year. Gardens, lush lawns and graceful fountains, abundant flowers and vineyard vistas tempt the eye, while the interiors of this elegant winery make it a must see.
Here’s looking at you, kids.
