Hamel was a really impressive winery. Beautiful and pristine. It is worth the trip alone to see the grounds and the building, so detail oriented-every aspect from the buildings to the wines. Caves were impressive. Marty guided us through the wines and the winery grounds....More

From the ultra modern tasting room, to the cool oak barrel storage facility, the monogrammed tasting menu to the flavorful rose and the delightful and knowledgeable tour guide.... it is just a wonderful wine tasting experience. Highly recommended.
