2018 Hartford Court Hailey's Block Pinot Noir (120 Cases Made)

“Defined tones of red fruit and tangerine alongside bright acidity give the wine undeniable lift and life … it delights the mid-palate with length and energy. - VB Wine Enthusiast July 2020

Read more about Hailey's Block...

Hailey's Block Pinot Noir is located within the prestigious Arrendell Vineyard and is named after founders Don & Jenny Hartford's daughter Hailey. The block was planted over 20 years ago to Dijon clones 114 and 777 at a time when Hailey was just six years old. Over time, we have watched both Hailey and her namesake Pinot Noir mature into personalities of great strength, beauty and charm.

2018 Hartford Court Fog Dance Vineyard Chardonnay (274 Cases Made)

“From a far coastal site dipped in Goldridge soils at 700-feet elevation, this white is adorned in mineral-laden earth, stone and briny fog. Pear, vanilla and orange peel contrast a refined richness, buzzing in tension and acidity.” - VB Wine Enthusiast October 2020

Read more about Fog Dance Vineyard...

Our Fog Dance Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are from our organically farmed, estate-owned Pinot Noir vineyard on the rolling hills located just to the east of Green Valley Creek in the Russian River Valley. This gorgeous Pinot Noir vineyard was planted in 1996 upon Goldridge fine sandy loam soils to several Dijon clones: 667, 777 and 115.  The stunningly beautiful Chardonnay vineyard was planted in 1998 using Dijon Chardonnay Clone 96 and ENTAV 809.

The Fog Dance Vineyard is thus called because of the dance performed by the Pacific fog, drifting through the vineyards and back again to the sea each day.

About Hartford Family Winery

Family Owned

Hartford Family Winery is in Forestville in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County California owned by Jenny and Don Hartford and their children Hailey Hartford Murray and MacLean Hartford.

Small Single Vineyard Bottlings

We specialize in small bottlings of high personality single vineyard designated Hartford Court labeled Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays, and Hartford labeled Old Vine Zinfandels. Single Vineyard wines are typically less than 300 cases each and are highly allocated – most selling almost exclusively to Wine Club customers.   

High Risk High Reward Vineyard Sites

Beginning over 25 years ago, the winery planted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in cool, marginal areas in Northern California. The Winery thinks of its vineyards as unique, “high risk – high reward sites” where the site’s adversity works to build memorable characteristics in our wines.  

Old Vine Zinfandel Vineyard Treasures

The Winery’s Single Vineyard Zinfandel bottlings are from our Estate and neighbors 100+ year old heirloom Russian River Valley Vineyards.  In 2016 Hartford’s 2014 Russian River Valley Zinfandel was the Number 10 Wine on the Wine Spectator’s TOP 100 WINES OF THE YEAR.
