Hamby Cellars is family-owned and operated, crafting small-lot, sustainably farmed, and premier wines in Sonoma County.
Born from a culmination of passion and entrepreneurial spirit, Hamby Cellars was created by childhood sweethearts Branden and Sydnie Hamby. Our vision is to craft classic varietals with a fresh and modern approach that we'd enjoy at our own table.
Branden Hamby is a millennial winemaker who was pre-med at UC Santa Barbara before he discovered his dream of winemaking. Since then, he has worked for small-lot wineries, as well as some of the largest wine companies in the world, cultivating his well-rounded winemaking style.
Wine is meant to be shared and enjoyed. Our goal with Hamby Cellars is to make wine that brings people together to cherish the small moments.
At Hamby Cellars, we focus on using low-intervention winemaking techniques to showcase the varietal and thoughtfully craft balanced wines. This means using all native yeast fermentation and meticulously monitoring all aspects of the wine throughout its cycle from berry to bottle. These wines are meant to highlight their origins and elicit a sense of place.
We age the wines in all French oak barrels with low to no amount of new oak, allowing these handcrafted wines to bring out the truest expression of the grapes, soil, and overall terroir.
