“By the early 1960s ... a revolution in winemaking was starting. Its birthplace was in Sonoma County at Hanzell.”
Ambassador Zellerbach told people his goal was to make California wine
as good as the best of Europe.

“Continuity is one of the things that sets us apart from other California wineries.We inherited a set of values and a standard of behavior. Hanzell means the world to me. We’re sort of intertwined. I don't know where Hanzell begins and I end.”
“Being part of the Hanzell Vineyards team requires conscious commitment to joining an exquisite list of visionaries, scientists, executives, winemakers, viticulturalists, vineyard and cellar workers, artists, craftsmen, and gardeners. One must be called to the work here. Our reward for this commitment is in becoming a part of the Hanzell Way and its history.”
“I see the winery as part of my family for generations to come. It is my honor and responsibility to support this estate as Hanzell is special to me personally and privately but also has great significance in the history of California winemaking.”
