Happy Mother’s Day

We know how hard all of the mothers in our lives work and we’re positive that the mothers in your lives work just as hard. We would like to recognize these special women with a treat just for them!

The Greatest Treasure – A Poem For Moms

The greatest treasure in the world

is not found beneath the earth…

Its bounty has been with me all my life

from the very moment of my birth…

When opened there is no gold or silver,

and it isn’t hard to find…

It comes with unconditional love

and gives me peace of mind…

When times are tough and I get down,

it’s the treasure I was given…

That gently smiles and always says

“I love you and you’re forgiven.”

I wonder how she always knew

what I was feeling everyday…

And when she held me in her arms

knowing just the right words to say…

Yes, the greatest treasure in the world

could only come from God above.

It is the tender, gentle heart

that is my mother’s love…

~ Ron Hatcher

March, 2015

May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back.

And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

 

Please plan your next visit to Hansen Vineyards
so that we can all catch up  this year.

YOUR SPRING 2015 WINE CLUB SHIPMENT IS READY

lucky you!


What’s Been Happening Over At Hansen Vineyards…

Since our last shipment, there have been a lot of things going on! We hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season and celebrated the New Year off right, with a few bottles of Hansen Cabernet of course. In case you have not had a chance to visit us for a while, we are in the process of expanding our tasting room to accommodate more guests at the tasting bar. Bruce has done this by relocating the restroom just outside of the wall of where it was originally. As soon as the final inspections are completed, he will be able to finish the new restroom, remove the plumbing out of the original, and that space will accommodate the tasting bar expansion. We hope to have this project finished by May, just in time for Wine Festival Weekend, if not before then.

 

Later this year we are hoping to add an e-commerce area so that our club members may purchase wine online. Since our Wine Club Cook Book idea didn’t really take off like we were hoping to, we will instead be posting a Recipe of the Month on the new website homepage. So if you have any favorite recipes that pair particularly well with any of Bruce’s wines, please send them to wineclub@hansenwines.com.

 

 By now, most of you know that Bruce does not like to have idle hands and has to have at least two or more projects going at any given time. As if managing the vineyard during the winter and doing construction in the tasting room weren’t enough, he’s been spending the last few months playing with wine that he had in the barrels. In the past, Bruce has usually aged his Cabernet Sauvignon for at least three years to make sure they are perfect before bottling. He also has a preference for French Oak with a medium toast on the barrel. However, sometimes he is moved to change his ways when the weather and the grapes produce an amazing product.  He has been experimenting with a few new barrels lately and has found that a few Bulgarian Oak barrels are adding a very unique quality to his Cabs that he’s liking quite well , in combination with the French Oak.

 

In 2012 and 2013, we had some pretty incredibly crop yields in the vineyard which produced an extraordinary amount of wine. After going through and tasting a few of the barrels on a regular basis in the last several months, Bruce has decided to go ahead and bottle TWO Cabernet Sauvignons from the 2012 Vintage along with a 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon. Yes you read that correctly. We are bottling THREE brand new, spectacular Cabernet Sauvignons March 21, 2015. What is even more exciting is that we will be bottling even more in the fall!

 

So we hope that you enjoy the new wines as much as we do. We plan to send our 2010 Limited, 2011 Limited, 2012 Estate, 2012 Vinter’s Private Selection, and 2013 Estate Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon to a few competitions this year to see how they stand up to our current Double Gold Medal winning Cabs.

 As always, thank you for your love of our wines and for supporting our business. We would be nothing without our club members.

 Cheers,

The Hansen Vineyards Crew

October, 2014

Greetings friends!

 

This has been an absolutely busy and productive season! Bruce has been working diligently to make sure there is enough wine for our upcoming shipments and has bottled all of his new vintages. So far the ratings are overwhelmingly fantastic! If you haven’t had a chance to stop by the tasting room, please do so that you have a chance to try the 2013 Viognier, 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Limited, and the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Limited at their low introductory pricing before we send them off to competition! Bruce also had some Syrah aging in the barrels that he decided to go ahead and bottle, because it tasted SO good in the tank. Unfortunately, the Syrah suffered from extreme bottle shock so it will have to rest for quite some time before Bruce will allow anyone to try it. Trust us, it’s for the best!!

Please enjoy our quarterly newsletters. If you are a club member, you will receive a copy in your e-mail prior to any bottling, wine club shipments, events, or big news at Hansen Vineyards & Winery. This is a way for guests to keep up-to-date with everything happening here at the winery.

Since you are familiar with Bruce’s Gold and Double Gold premium Estate Cabs, you know how critical he is of his wines. With that being said, he thinks that the 10 and 11 Limited Cabernets are some of the best he’s ever made… We are very excited to send them to competition, once they’ve had a chance to relax a while in the bottle, to see what the judges think.

Upcoming Events at Hansen Vineyards:

 ld Medal

2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Limited Release, NEW

2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Limited Release, NEW

2010 Marquis Zinfandel, Gold Medal 

Please specify either Classic Shipment or Gold Medal Shipment by replying to this email.

Bruce is sending his 2010 Rose and 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve to The Library and once they are there they will no longer be for purchase!! This is the last chance that Club Members will have an opportunity on these incredible wines. Let us know if you’d like us to include a bottle or two of these in your shipment before you can no longer get them!

Thank you for your interest in Hansen Vineyards!

Hello Hansen Vineyards Fans,

Thank you for enjoying our wines and supporting our local family owned and operated production! We couldn’t do what we do without your love and support.
Spring 2014

 

What’s happening at Hansen Vineyards…

With Harvest officially upon us, things are moving along fast! Bruce has been checking the Brix levels on the grapes frequently and with all of this hot weather we have been having, the grapes matured quickly and are ready to harvest. The Viognier grapes were ready to go in early August, so that wine is already aging in the barrels as we speak. On Sunday September 14th, the Estate and Marquis Zinfandel was harvested and the Estate Cabernet will be harvested shortly after. Bruce crushed the Zins immediately because he wanted to start the fermentation process. Once fermentation is complete, he will press, move the Zinfandels into 100% French Oak barrels and turn around to pick and crush our Cabernet, which will fill up those tanks again! We are hoping for a light break to celebrate the following events and wines with you because we are ready for a good time!!

Bruce’s Corner:
CIMG0955[2]

The weather in 2014 has been absolutely frightening in the majority of the country. First, there was the ‘Polar Vortex’ overtaking the majority of the Midwest and East Coast. That was followed by extreme heat and thunderstorms causing massive flooding in those same states. Good thing we don’t live there! Here in California, we’ve just been battling the heat and a severe drought… like usual. If you’d like to keep more up-to-date on the state drought and the water reservoir conditions, I advise you to read The California Weather Blog. Daniel Swain does a pretty nice job of keeping track of the state’s weather. He thinks that the water levels will continue to drop over the next couple of months. With the winter rainy season coming up, we were hoping to have an El Nino year. Earlier in the year, experts who were monitoring the temperatures of the ocean were calling for a monster of an El Nino, but now it’s just not looking like that’s the case. We are hoping and praying to have at least a decent rainy winter which we desperately need, especially with all of the new vineyards going in on the Central Coast. Unfortunately it looks as though we may end up having yet another dry year, so buckle it up kids; it may be a bumpy road for our local wineries. Many of our neighbors have suffered from their wells drying up. So far, we seem to be ok, but if we don’t get rain again this year, we may be in trouble.

 

Wines moving to The Library…
Because they were so popular and yummy, I’ve moved the 2006 3 Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon and “The Graduate” 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon to my Library of wines because there is less than a case of each! So they are no longer available for purchase. The 2010 Cabernet Rosé and the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve and running low, so get them while you can before they enter the Library too! The holidays are coming quickly, and Hansen Wines make the perfect gift!! Purchase in the tasting room, by e-mail, or call us!
