Three Hammers Winery provides an exceptional selection of refreshing, handcrafted, small-batch, and classically-styled wines. We pride ourselves on impeccable service and a commitment to quality from the farms and vineyards all the way to our tasting room. We secure outstanding grapes that produce wines of character and expression from vineyards in varied U.S. renowned appellations proven to grow. It is an approach that captures the “best fruit to make a great wine” and provides our winemakers with an unparalleled palette from which to blend each wine and vintage. Through these diverse sites and regions, we explore the differences between East Coast and West Coast appellations as well as the ways in which they complement one another.
The following wines reflect our current releases, available as tastings or for purchase by the glass or bottle:

2018 Pinot Noir

Paying homage to the brothers who started it all, this semi-sweet red blend has a hint of oak on the nose with highlights of bright, jammy flavors on the palate.
