On a Thanksgiving weekend tour of high-end wineries in Sonoma and Napa valleys, Hartford Court was our second stop, and it set a high bar. The tasting room at the winery is relatively small and comfortable, warm and inviting. The wines are some of the better ones we tasted on our trip, beginning with the Chardonnay, progressing to about three of their Pinot Noirs, and finishing up with a Syrah, all of which were excellent, well-balanced, structured, age-worthy, and yet approachable. Their wines definitely have a place in our cellar.

Beautiful building and grounds. Recommended to us by the folks at Merry Edwards in Graton (north of Sebastopol). Excellent pinot noir, with a number of other good varietals. The owner is the daughter of the late Jess Jackson of Kendall-Jackson. Apparently he started what is now the Hartford Family Winery as a “high end” division of K-J but daughter took it over.

We spent three days in Sonoma and it is vastly superior there to Napa: fewer crowds, wine folks willing to spend more time with you -- and really, really good wine.

My wife and I booked a box lunch with our wine tasting. Great choice. Lunch was excellent with the wine tasting throughout the meal. Restful seating on their patio with fantastic views. They spent time telling us about their various viineyards. Sonoma wineries seem to have more time to spend on 1 on 1 discussions than Napa wineries. Great wine. Has even been served at the White House.
