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. Hamel Family Wines focuses on limited-production Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc from their four estate vineyards located in the Sonoma Valley.

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.
Product Information: At Hamel Family Wines, we strive to make great wine and to have fun doing so. We value quality over quantity, enjoyment over tedium and fostering long-term recurring relationships with our guests. We work hard to produce the highest quality wines in limited quantities from grapes grown on our Sonoma Valley and Moon Mountain District estate vineyards. We farm our vineyards with organic and biodynamic practices, always mindful of our role as responsible stewards of the land. We remain grateful for our guests, respectful of our neighbors and appreciative of the fine work that our team performs daily.
