Winery Visit: Hartford Family Winery – 9.0 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

This winery feels like you are entering someone’s Russian River Valley house (and where there is a winery out back).  This is a beautiful enclave in the Russian River Valley tucked away—not seen from a distance.  This wine house specializes in Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel—I was fortunate enough to get two bottles of their Arrendell Vineyard Pinot Noir for my birthday.  And I enjoyed one bottle while I was in London—I probably had the only Arrendell Pinot Noir in the City.  I look forward to each visit Hartford Family and enjoying their Pinot Noirs—when you visit ask for the Arrendell Vineyard Pinot Noir.  A very nice experience in all aspects.

About James Melendez

I have two blogs on this descriptor page--I use to be able to make separate. My fragrance blog is to express my thoughts on fragrance. A passion in addition to wine. I think it is a stellar component to the senses and that which I am in love with. I hope you like both blogs. My "wine" blog also incorporates those categories intimately involved - wine, food, travel and lifestyle. We all need food and water to survive but we need wine to nourish our soul. My favourite varietals are Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo, Grenache, Syrah-Shiraz.. for my red wines. And I often circle back to these varieties and sometimes they are my home varieties. The journey of wine is an historical footnote also marked by viti-viniculture and artistry that makes this beverage a living one. I have worked professionally in the wine trade and have loved all aspects; marketing, history, science and art of wine. © 2014 James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy— All Rights Reserved – for my original Content, logo, brand name, rating, rating graphic and award and designs of James the Wine Guy.
