Hahn Family Wines, formally known as Hahn Estates, produce a range of wines from five vineyards located in the Santa Lucia Highlands and Monterey County appellations. This region boasts the most varied climatic conditions of any region in California and produces fruit with exceptional varietal intensity, flavour, depth and structure.

The estate is owned and operated by Nicky Hahn and his wife Gaby who moved to Monterey in the mid 1970's. They now produce 400,000 cases of wine per year making them the fifth largest producer by volume amongst America's family owned private wineries. They purchased the Smith & Hook Winery in 1980, laying the groundwork for their long-term commitment to bring out the potential of Monterey. With their prime location in the Santa Lucia Highlands overlooking the Salinas Valley, these ranches turned vineyards presented ideal weather conditions for growing premium varietal fruit.

The spectacular beauty of California's central coast is probably the best-known region in all of California for its unique lifestyle. Monterey County's dramatic ocean scenery, historic communities, artistic culture, verdant pine forests, and bountiful agriculture have beckoned adventure-seekers, seafarers, artists, writers and vacationers for over 100 years. And the 99 miles of breathtaking Pacific coastline is something no other California county can boast.

With an inspiration to raise Monterey wines to the highest level, the wines of Hahn Winery are created with a philosophy that all great wines are special - akin to the region they were grown in. The Hahn wines celebrate everything that is Monterey - unique in thought, style and setting. Wines of Monterey Distinction.
