The building and setting help make California "our France". The wine is outstanding and the service on our visit was attentive and cheerful. Not inexpensive.

We were fortunate to arrive when they weren't too busy and enjoyed the wine, the surroundings and a delicious port. Having just been to Portugal, it was a pleasant surprise.

This winery is in a lovely setting and they have great wines. The wines are expensive but worth it if you like zins and pinots

I thought the wines here were good, but not the best. The tasting room and barrels are in a house type setting. Outside the patio is nice and clean and a great place to have some food and a bottle of wine. I enjoyed their Chard the most I think over the Pinots they were pouring.

We did a wine tasting at Hartford. Amazing time. We randomly tried one of their wines in a restaurant at Half Moon Bay a few days before getting to the wine country. We sought out the winery. It is off the beaten path but well worth the time. The staff was amazing, the grounds and winery are beautiful and the... More

Found this by chance on our way to Armstrong redwood preserve. It was before lunch and we had Tosha to ourselves. She was very friendly and informative. We only bought two bottles but in hindsight should have bought more. Love their Pinot noir! You can always order online. Will go again next time in the area. Very nice grounds.

Hartford Family Winery presents any number quality wines and considering the price point...well worth enjoying. Their Pinot Noir is my favorite and goes well with a meal or just enjoying company.

This was the worse tasting experience in our many years of wine tasting! The setting was beautiful and it stops here..... The staff was distant, cold and totally uninterested in offering a pleasant experience. They rushed us through the tasting giving barely a description of the wines they were pouring. The wines were over priced compared to other wineries in... More

We really enjoyed the wines at Hartford. They had been recommended by a wine merchants in SF and they did not disappoint. Big fruit forward wines the Pinot and Chardonnay was divine.
