If you haven’t met Andy Mitchell, he is a tremendous human and amazing steward of the vineyards at Hahn Vineyards. Officially, he is the Director of Vineyard Operations. He is the reason the vineyards are SIP Certified. Andy is also the photographer of these amazing photos. You’ll see some of them on the new Hahn Family Wines web site when we go live in May. Here’s a sneak peek:
The Malbec goes into our Meritage. Sometime’s there is even a Wine Club Only 100% Malbec…it is delicious!
You might recognize “Doctor’s Vineyard” from the Lucienne single vineyard pinot noir Hahn makes.
The Salinas Valley and Santa Lucia Highlands is known for the fog and their cool climate grapes; especially syrah, chardonnay and pinot noir.
Another paradise, just 2 hours south of San Francisco.
And my personal favorite.
Photos courtesy of Andy Mitchell. You can see more on flickr.

If you’re a winery or have anything to do with selling wine, you had better know about the web. And I mean more than just e-mail. Because right now, there are hoards of tech-savvy 20 & 30 somethings who LOVE wine almost as much as they love technology.
So if you’re not optimizing, twittering & friend-ing people on LinkedIn, FaceBook or Wine 2.0, AND following TTL (aka Twitter Taste Live …for wine & tech geeks alike), you may as well be…under a rock. But I suppose if you’re reading this, you’ve been acquainted with the Social Media platform. It is here to stay in a BIG way.
Find out more NOW.
