About Hahn Family Wines

Hahn Family Wines was established by Nicolaus (“Nicky”) and Gaby Hahn in the late 1970’s when they purchased land in Monterey County. In 1988, sensing the potential of the region, Nicky Hahn became a catalyst for the Santa Lucia Highlands (SLH) appellation by spearheading efforts to establish an American Viticulture Area (AVA) for this wine growing region. Today Hahn Family Wines owns one of the largest shares of planted vines in the region with more than 650 SLH vineyard acres that range in elevation from 200 to 1,200 feet and offer a diverse selection of terroir for producing Pinot Noir and other varietals. These wines are made to fit any occasion or celebration, from everyday wines for dinner to a complex, elegant vineyard-designate Pinot Noir perfect for cellaring or toasting some of life’s biggest milestones. Hahn Family Wines includes Hahn Winery, Hahn SLH Estate, and Lucienne.

In addition to their Hahn Estate property and winery facility, the company also produced several brands out of their winery facility and visitor’s center near Lodi, including Cycles Gladiator and Boneshaker.
