Founded in 1993 by Don and Jenny Jackson Hartford, Hartford Family Winery is known for handcrafting small bottlings of highly acclaimed, high personality, single-vineyard Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs, and Old Vine Zinfandels. Located in the picturesque town of Forestville in Sonoma County, California, Hartford Family Winery sits just 15 miles from the cool Pacific Coast. The location, possessing of its unique, challenging terrain, ideal lands and the cool Pacific winds that roll in nearly every day, encourages the creation of wines that each reflect the unique character of this beautiful place.
“Character through adversity” is an expression that the Hartfords believe applies to people and grapevines: surviving adversity builds character, and personality, in both. Hartford’s highly desired wines come from nearly two decades of dedication and perseverance to the land that this family loves. Handcrafting delicious wines of high personality is directly related to the difficult locations of Hartford’s vineyard sources, the limited production of bottlings and the varieties - carefully chosen for these magical California wines.
