Walter Hansel Winery is located in Sonoma County at the southern tip of the Russian River Valley near the Sebastopol hills. It is bordered to the north by the Santa Rosa Creek and to the west by a tributary of the Russian River known as the Laguna de Santa Rosa. This location is ideal for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as the nights and mornings are cooled by coastal fog yet the mid-days warm up to perfect grape ripening temperatures. Temperature swings of 40 degrees are very common. – Description from JelaDragoljevic

    Big and lovely Russian River Pinot. Layers of dark fruit, allspice, stewed prunes, lively mouth watering acidity, a touch of smoke on the nose, chewy fine grained tannins and a fairly long finish. Read More

  • I have a question. Why is it that with the holidays, people start stocking up on Pinot Noirs? Was there someone who said that one has to pair holiday food (turkey, stuffings, ham etc) with Pinot Noir? I ask because local wine stores have been big on promoting Pinot Noirs! and I keep hearing about it.. I havent noticed it in the past years since ... Read More

  •  Dmcker asked for a guided tour of the "True" Sonoma Coast wineries. That can be a handful since many wineries source fruit from the "True" but don't necessarily make their homes there. The tour could start in Freestone or Cazadero and end up on Howell Mountain in the Napa Valley. With that in mind I'll try to break the tour up into parts that c... Read More

    Wine review by solargecko


  • Being a fan of Pinot Noir from Burgundy, Cabernet and Merlot from the left and right banks of Bordeaux and Rhone varietals from, you guessed it, the Rhone valley, I've had trouble finding wines that I really like from California. Sure there have been a number of very good, and occasionally great, bottles, but my experience has been about a 20% a... Read More
