Hartford Family Winery
Hartford Family Winery was founded in 1994 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 vineyard sources, the limited production of their bottlings and the varietals. “Character through adversity” is an expression that they believe applies to people and grapevines and surviving adversity builds character, and personality, in both.
Hartford Family Winery specializes in making wines from single vineyard sites. Small and low-yielding vineyards deliver expressive and personality-rich wine. The Hartford Old Vine Zinfandels are produced in small quantities and are highly allocated. Our 80-100 year old Zinfandel vineyards are irreplaceable treasures. They source their vineyard-designated Russian River Valley Zinfandels (150-500 cases) from some of the oldest Zinfandel vineyards in California. The complexity and depth of flavors from these vineyards produce the most consistently bold and unctuous Zinfandels found anywhere.
