The Hamel Family Wines Tasting Room and Winery is truly inspired by the magnificent 124-acre site it occupies along Highway 12 just 5 miles north of Sonoma Town Square. The new winery produces Bordeaux-style, terroir-driven wines from their four estate vineyards located in the Sonoma Valley.

Breaking ground the fall of 2012 with the grand opening in June of 2014, the winery is located deep into the site, nestled up against an existing slope of oak woodland and manzanita chaparral that reaches into the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains. The new facility has been devoted primarily to fermentation and support spaces for the vintner’s team. Barrel storage is within an adjacent wine cave east of the winery (into the slope), which will substantially reduce the overall footprint of the winery.

Located just west of the winery, the Estate House sits on a stone plinth, providing guests with dramatic views over the gently rolling vineyard that are typical of the Sonoma Valley floor. Surrounded by a protective rainscreen of recycled cedar siding and incorporating state-of-the-art mechanical systems to reduce energy usage, the project reflects the Hamel family’s intent to be exemplary stewards of the land by supporting their deep commitment to sustainable, organic farming.
