Thank you for considering Hamel Family Wines during your upcoming Sonoma visit. Each Experience is privately led by an Estate Ambassador, includes a tour, and wine tasting, and can include food pairings. In addition, a “dry” tasting is offered for non-wine drinkers who are enjoying the Experience with others. All tours are appointment only, and are available Thursday through Monday.

At Hamel Family Wines, we strive to make great wine and to have fun doing so. We value quality over quantity, enjoyment over tedium and fostering long-term recurring relationships with our guests. We work hard to produce the highest quality wines in limited quantities from grapes grown on our Sonoma Valley and Moon Mountain District estate vineyards. We farm our vineyards with organic and biodynamic practices, always mindful of our role as responsible stewards of the land. We remain grateful for our guests, respectful of our neighbors and appreciative of the fine work that our team performs daily.

Our wine guide was great. But the true winner is their wines. We were in Napa/Sonoma area for 4 days and my wife, my daughter and myself all agreed the this was the best winery of the 12 we visited.

The facilities were beautiful and the tour and wines were equally as excellent. Our guide Kirstin was extremely knowledgeable of the wine making process and the wines and made the tasting enjoyable. I had never heard of Hamel before, but this tasting was the hidden gem winner of the trip!

Off the beaten path near downtown Napa. This is a hidden gem. Beautiful new patio with a gorgeous view. We did the cheese pairing and it was a fantastic charcuterie board. Bought a few bottles here too. Great host. Horseback riding isn’t our thing, but they offer that here.

This property is a perfect combination of wine making, location, design and service! Matt Mills was very adept in telling me and my party the narrative of the property. We were in expert hands. Loved the wines I would recommend this to all my wine friends who travel back to wine country from the East Coast.

From the moment we walked up, we were welcomed and treated so well. Loved the family winery vibe, they truly care about their craft and the guest experience. We were nervous that this was our first stop and that the other wineries/tasting rooms wouldn’t even compare to Hamel. We were right! We chose the best first and everything after was compared to Hamel. They set a very high bar.

Beautiful interior design touches and lovely wine. Homemade ricotta added wonderful flavors to the wine tasting experience. Looking forward to inviting our BFF and having another wonderful day.

The private tour and tasting experience with Eric was such a great way to make a visit even more special. And your Isthmus is fantastic.

This is without a doubt, the best, most personal, most informative, and most amazing Sonoma wine experience offered. Period. Wines were amazing. Food was amazing. Thanks Zach for a great tour, and answering all of our questions.

The Badger theme and family feeling continued throughout the entire visit, with warm and attentive hospitality from Nick and Dawn along with delicious wines and tasty food pairings as part of our 3-hour Estate Reserve Tasting experience. And we joined the Badger wine clan!

Following the breathtaking and insightful tour, we were seated in the main area on the couches overlooking the beautiful vinyard and were given the most amazing samplings of wine and a charcuterie plate.

We loved our visit. We had a three hour tasting on Sunday morning and had the property to ourselves. Marty, the estate ambassador, was a fabulous host and Clinton cooked us a 4 course meal for the tasting that was incredible. All for only $100 a piece - amazing and our best visit in all of Sonoma or Napa!

Our exclusive and private estate tour, which includes a 4-pairing chef's tasting, was impeccable. Our guide warm, knowledgeable, and hospitable. The environment was beautiful, and the private room in the caves just over the top in terms of making us feel impeccably special. Our family name on the menu was too fun. An expensive tour/tasting, but worth it.
