  • The Hamel Family Wines Estate House 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 and Cabernet Sauvignon blends, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc from their four certified biodynamic and organic estate vineyards located in the Sonoma Valley and Moon Mountain District AVAs.

    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. We invite you to experience Hamel Family Wines seven days a week by appointment only.
