Hannah Nicole Vineyards

6700 Balfour Road Brentwood, CA 94513


For Hannah Nicole farming and winemaking go hand in hand. Good wine, we believe, starts with good fruit and a good vineyard. Our winemaking strives to maintain that quality throughout the process of winemaking, and to create wines that are authentic and interesting to drink for both connoisseurs and novices.


Hannah Nicole Vineyards & Winery is the first contemporary-era winery in the East Contra Costa region. Our winery is situated on an 80 acre estate with more than 50 acres planted in 10 varietals. In a casual yet elegant environment with plenty of outdoor and indoor space, our tasting room allows you to sip and enjoy our estate grown, made, and bottled wines. We also offer membership in the wine club which brings our wines to your door at a great discount. As an exclusive advantage of membership, Wine Club members receive invitations to private events throughout the year. We also organize private events such as weddings, anniversaries and corporate events, as well as public music events and functions.


Set in the lush green pastures of eastern Contra Costa County, Hannah Nicole Vineyards is a picturesque paradise for wine lovers and the creators Neil and Glenda Cohn dream-come-true. In 1999 the couple first bought ten acres of land there planning to plant apple trees. Yet apple prices plunged, and they quickly switched gears to Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines beautifully took root, showing the history of winemaking in the region that started over a century ago. Maybe that legacy helped the Cohns accomplish so much in 12 short years. Hannah Nicole Vineyards currently comprises 80 hectares planted on Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Viognier and Zinfandel. The grounds are now being graced by a new state-of - the-art 18,000-square-foot winery, tasting room and event center and the winery's collection has grown to more than a dozen outstanding wines. Having a great winemaker certainly helps too. Back in 2002, the Cohns first encountered Winemaker John Soteloat in Madera, a custom crush center. We were impressed with John's extensive knowledge and unique experience, which included working with Native American wine grapes such as Lemberger, Chancellor, and Vidal Blanc in Rhode Island. John joined Hannah Nicole Vineyards in 2003, and continues to manage the journey of the grapes from vineyard to glass with mastery. Next to all the grapes used in Hannah Nicole wines are grown in the ranch. The 2011 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition recently awarded the 2009 Hannah Nicole Le Mélange Blanc with a gold medal, along with four silver medals and eight bronze medals, to other launches by Hannah Nicole.


Hannah Nicole Vineyards is a stunning destination for wine tourers looking for elegance, serenity and exclusive wines. The generous grounds enjoy a stunning view of Mount Diablo, breathtaking in their own right. The winery is home to many weddings and special events, and it even hosts a number of popular summer concerts and movie nights outdoors. Thanks to wineries like Hannah Nicole Vineyards, Contra Costa wine country is fresh again.
