Hartford Court is a family-run estate based in Russian River, California. They specialize in single-vineyard expressions of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and old-vine Zinfandel. All bottlings are made in minute quantities, with some vineyards producing less than 93 cases. The estate has received numerous accolades since its inception, including landing on the Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of the Year a handful of times over. Many of the single vineyards produced lie within mere miles of the cool Pacific Ocean breeze, so expect a more vibrant, lifted style of wine than the typical notion of Californian Chardonnay, for example.
