This winery is in a beautiful location but has an odd entrance. There was nothing special about the visit. We felt rushed to finish because she had the next pour ready so fast. The wines are very pricey. Nice place to see though!

I wish I could say my wife and I experienced what others have experienced. We are frequent visitors to wine country, especially Sonoma County and particularly the Healdsburg area. On a visit to Healdsburg in early October and for our first time at Hartford we set up a wine and cheese pairing to enjoy a relaxed tasting. We arrived 10... More

Esposa and I came here on our first of three days of wine tasting in Sonoma. I picked Hartford Family Winery solely based on Wine Spectator's recommendations. Good choice! STAFF: 5 stars. We arrived a few minutes before out appointment and our hostess warmly greeted us, asking for a little time to finalize things. She sat us outside on the... More

We were at the tasting room in Healdsburg, just up the block from Stonestreet's tasting room which is also a Jess Jackson Family winery. Bekah was our tasting hostess and she knows the wine very well answering all our questions. The wines all average between $50 and $70 per bottle but are distinctive with intense flavor and characteristics. It's most... More

We've been going to Hartford for years and the wine is spectacular, as are the facilities. The staff is always very friendly and quite knowledgeable.

Already knew I loved their wines..Scenic location. Nice ladies hosting wine tasting.Grapes were being delivered from harvest so neat to see that..Forrestville 30 min from Healdsburg but nice scenic drive with lots of vineyards in between. I joined their wine club of course, I am excited for first delivery.

We visited the tasting room in Healdsburg. We have tasted the wines from Hartford Family Winery previously and we were excited to visit the tasting room in Healdsburg.

Went to the winery due to a strong recommend from a good friend who used to live in Santa Rosa and raved about their wines; and she really knows wine. We arrived at 4:20pm, and the man at the tasting room turned us away saying we "close at 4:30 and are about to close, could you come back tomorrow?" No,... More
