- In 1996 Steven Hansel took his father's vision, 250 vines planted two decades previously, and produced (with the help of friend Tom Rochioli) super-low yield, vineyard-designate, Old World-styled Pinot Noir (and Chardonnay) out of his garage. Using only natural yeasts and eschewing filtering or fining, the wines that Walter Hansel dreamed of are today's reality.
