Walter Hansel Winery Pinot Noir Cahill Lane 2018 750ml



My father, Walter, loved to grow everything from kiwi to oriental pears and more. In the 1970's he enlisted my help to plant 257 chardonnay vines. Throughout the 1980's our entire family would harvest the half acre of grapes and my father and I would make the wine; filling two barrels, which equaled 50 cases of wine.

Initially these wines were hard to drink, but with the help of my friend, Tom Rochioli, I developed a passion to understand everything about the vineyards and the process of making wine. This passion influenced my quest for growing World-class wines.

Since our first commercial vintage in 1996, I have learned with every harvest that you must listen to vine; react to Mother Nature and ALWAYS compromise quantity for quality.

Our people

One of the most unique aspects of Walter Hansel Winery is that no one works full time in the Winery. When I need various tasks to be completed, whether during harvest or during the year, I have Jesse, the vineyard manager and some of his crew work along side of me to accomplish our tasks.

The team works the winery; the bottling line; and also fill and ship your orders to your home or office. The significance of this is that when they are working the vineyard, which requires many tedious and boring tasks, they understand how these vineyard jobs translate into world-class quality wines. By working the winery and shipping the wines, they take ownership and pride in every bottle.
