Hatton Daniels

Santa Rosa, California

Hatton Daniels was founded in 2009 with the goal of allowing each vintage to speak for itself, without trying to force any style upon the wines. Over time as we have gotten more comfortable with our vineyards and added new wines, our philosophy has evolved to embrace the idea that the best way for a wine to express itself is to ensure that it is made from nothing but grapes, with no additions (other than a small sulfur addition to protect from oxidation in bottle). This means that the fruit needs to be picked early enough that it has plenty of natural acidity, and this leads to wines that are a bit lighter in style, but that are full of energy, and still have plenty of depth and complexity.
