Hartford Family Winery was founded in 1993 as a result of Don and Jennifer Hartford's appreciation for the wines, the people, and the unique vineyards near their Russian River Valley home. Located in the Sonoma County town of Forestville, the winery is about 15 miles from the cool Pacific Coast.
Making delicious wines of high personality is directly related to the difficult locations of the Hartford family's vineyard sources, the limited production of their bottlings and the varietals they use. "Character through adversity" is an expression that the Hartford family believes to apply to both people and grapevines, and they feel that surviving adversity builds character, and personality, in both.
The Hartford Family makes wines under two marks, one of which is Hartford Court. Hartford Court bottlings are small lots of high personality single vineyard Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that express the distinctive qualities inherent in each vineyard's terroir the interplay of soil, slope, exposure and climate. The fruit is sourced from the Russian River Valley, Green Valley and Sonoma Coast appellations.
TASTING NOTES: Our number one goal at Hartford Family Winery is to make intensely concentrated wines from small, low yielding, high risk high reward vineyards that express unique 'personality'. Hartford Court bottlings are delicious and flavorful Pinot Noirs and site expressive, cold climate Chardonnays. The Hartford label showcases the bold personalities of old vine Zinfandel vineyards (most over 90 years old) using identical artisan production techniques employed for most of our Pinot Noirs.
