4 Course Dinner with Wine Pairings for 6 & Winery Tour at Hamel Family Vineyards. $7,500
Your experience will begin with a walking tour of the 124 acre vineyard located in Glen Ellen, California. The winery is located deep into the site, nestled up against an existing slope of oak woodland and manzanita chaparral that reaches into the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains. Barrel storage is within an adjacent wine cave east of the winery, into the slope.
Dinner for you and your guests will be held in the breathtaking Library Room. The Estate House sits on a stone plinth, providing guests with dramatic views over the gently rolling vineyard that are typical of the Sonoma Valley floor. Surrounded by a protective rainscreen of recycled cedar siding and incorporating state-of-the-art mechanical systems to reduce energy usage, the project reflects the Hamel family’s intent to be exemplary stewards of the land by supporting their deep commitment to sustainable, organic farming.
The interiors by Angela Free are equally stunning, as they’re laden with gorgeous expanses of wood, stone and metal punctuated by nature-inspired details. The LEED-certified structure also features an herb garden and living roof.
Hamel Family Wines focuses on limited-production Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Sauvignon blends, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc from their four certified biodynamic and organic estate vineyards located in the Sonoma Valley and Moon Mountain District AVAs. Three generations of the Hamel Family work in varying capacities for the operation.
To occur on a mutually agreed upon date prior to December 1, 2021.
