It was our founder Nicky Hahn who suggested that the Santa Lucia Highlands be deemed a unique winegrowing district. In 1991, three years after he and fellow vintners made their appeal, the federal government approved the Highlands as an official American Viticultural Area (AVA).
Today, we produce our Hahn SLH Pinot Noir and Chardonnay entirely from our estate, in this breathtakingly beautiful region of Monterey County. The fruit grows in our family-owned vineyards and the wine is barrel-aged in the winery’s cellar.
When it’s time to blend the wine and get it in the bottle, our winemaker Paul Clifton chooses the barrels that he feels epitomize the aromas, flavors and structure of Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highland. We deem only a very limited number of barrels worthy to carry the SLH label.
