Tremani Vineyards is a partnership formed in 1997 by the Hansen family - sisters, Barbara and Diane and brother, Fred. For many decades our family has been an integral part of the agricultural community in Sonoma County. Our parents, Glenn and Elsie Hansen had a dairy in Petaluma and moved it to their Santa Rosa location in 1970. In 1989, Fred began broadening his agricultural interests with plantings of chardonnay, followed by pinot noir, and in 1997, Tremani Vineyards planted pinot gris and more chardonnay. Soon we were growing high quality grapes in the rich soils of the Russian River Valley appellation and selling them to area wineries.
In 2001, we decided to try our hand at making wine with our own grapes. Fred worked with local winemakers on our first vintage of pinot gris. It was such a success that we kept on going and have increased our production and sales each year since. We started making pinot noir in 2002 and are planning to make chardonnay in the near future.
Aside from growing grapes and making wine, we all lead busy lives. Fred owns Hansen Transport, Inc. and he and his wife Anna have a young and active family. Diane works for Fred and has a very busy family life with her husband Bill and their three children. Her sons Matt and Greg now operate the original dairy. Barbara is a teacher who has children and grandchildren who keep her occupied in her spare moments. Sadly, our mother passed away last October. Our father continues to live on the family ranch. We are grateful to our parents for their support of our Tremani endeavors.
