Hartford

Winery in Russian River Valley

Surprisingly upscale for West County, Hartford sits in a pastoral valley surrounded by redwood-forested hills, on one of the area’s prettiest back roads. It specializes in fine single-vineyard Pinot (13 kinds), Chardonnay and Zinfandel from old-vine fruit. Umbrella-shaded picnic tables dot the garden. Bottles are $30 to $100; the tasting fee is waived with purchase.
