History

The story of the winery goes all the way back to 1912. Coming from Hamburg in Germany, Hans and Marie Fahden bought the property and transformed it into a vineyard. Throughout the years of Prohibition, they grew prunes and walnuts, keeping up with agricultural traditions. Their grandsons eventually turned back to their grape-growing roots and began growing produce for wine again. The first bottle of wine was crafted in 1987 and since the 90s they have hosted wine tastings on a regular basis.

Location

The vineyard is surrounded by the grandeur of nature. It is on the border between Napa and Sonoma County and the property features forests of Douglas Fir in addition to its gardens and ponds. The petite city of Calistoga, where this vineyard is located, is known for its wineries as well as hot springs and mud baths.

    Hans Fahden is a Magical Place

    From the moment that we set foot at Hans Fahden Winery, we knew it was the place that we wanted to get married at. The Staff (Aubrey & Karen) and the others make you feel like Hans Fahden is your Winery, and they are your family. The Winery has a list of vendors that they work with, and let me tell you they are TOP NOTCH! from planning to the day of our wedding; everything went without a hitch. The pictures do not do the grounds justice; go in and visit, and I can assure you it is like no place you have visited before.

    A magical night...

    Let me start by saying how much my guests are still talking about this venue. We opted for the all inclusive package at Hans and I could not recommend it enough. Aubrey is amazing and quick to respond. I had numerous questions during the entire process and she had the answers. The all inclusive package is nice because the vendors have all worked with each other and know how to work well together. It takes a lot of the planning stress off of the bride and groom. Even with the all inclusive package we were still able to pick from a list of vendors for most areas of the wedding giving us the option to not have a cookie cutter wedding like most would think with a package. Another beautiful feature of this venue is the wine cave where the reception is held. Thank you again to Hans Fahden and their amazing team!
