It all started with 12 acres in the Russian River Valley, purchased in the late 70s, where Dr. Hanna and his daughter, Christine Hanna, began making homemade wine. In 1985, the winery was officially launched, and new vineyards were acquired throughout the next decade. Now, the family’s holdings total 600 acres, 230 planted to vines.
Red Ranch Vineyard has 88 acres planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and St. Macaire. The red loam soils and warm climate in this area are ideal for red Bordeaux varieties.
Dry Creek Valley
Dry Creek Mountain Vineyard is home to Chris Hanna and her husband Jake Whiteley. The vineyard is positioned at 900 feet in elevation on Bradford Mountain in the Dry Creek Valley AVA. With ancient alluvial soil deposits rich in iron and high in acidity, the vines struggle just enough to create intensely flavored wines. 16 acres of terraced vineyard blocks are dedicated to mostly Italian varietals including Aglianico, Grillo, Nero d’Avola, Sangiovese, along with Bordeaux varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This property also features 60 olive trees used to produce HANNA’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Russian River Valley
Home Ranch Vineyards is the flagship vineyard with 25 acres of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and is home to the original winery production facility. Slusser Road Vineyard is in the heart of the Russian River Valley, with 50 acres of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
Bismark Mountain Vineyard is high in the Sonoma Mayacamas Mountains in the new Moon Mountain AVA. The high elevations and rocky volcanic soil bring out the character of the fruit in 67 planted acres, which are devoted to the Bordeaux varieties and Zinfandel.
