Hanzell “Sebella” is crafted predominately from the younger vines on our estate along with fruit from select growers in the cooler regions of Sonoma County. Fermented in stainless steel and aged in neutral French oak barrels. Aromas of dried apple, citrus, flint and lemon grass follow through to a full body with tangy and tight acidity and a lively finish. Impressive minerality and verve here. Sophisticated and steely, it has a light grip of tannin and oak, with balanced acidity and fruitiness.

About Hanzell Sebella Winery
Ambassador James D. Zellerbach founded Hanzell Vineyards in 1953 with a vision to create wines that could compete on the world stage. Named after his wife Hana, Hanzell sits at the southern toe of the Mayacamas mountain range overlooking the south-western end of Sonoma Valley and San Pablo Bay. After extensive time spent in Burgundy, Zellerbach returned inspired and educated by the region’s wines and grapes—Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. He then planted these two varieties at a time when there were less than a few hundred acres of each planted in North America. Since 1975, Hanzell has been solely owned by the de Brye family, who is dedicated to the preservation of tradition with a progressive and holistic approach which will ensure the sustainability for generations to come.
