Hickman Family VineyardsTod and Alyse, owners.
Our love affair with wine began in the late 90ís. We could not get enough of the wine tasting experience in our native Sonoma County.
Before we knew it Alyse was working for a small start up winery owned by Korbel. This afforded us insight and access to the production side of the wine world and before long we were
cultivating our own ideas for a start up winery. One of the defining features of this industry is the willingness of everyone to share their knowledge. We are very appreciative of
those accomplished individuals that helped us along the way.
Our dream soon led us to the foothills and the former gold rush town of Bangor.
This is the second time Tod has lived in Bangor. The first time was Submarine Base Bangor, Washington.
The oak studded foothills and terroir reminded us of the eastern side of Sonoma County. Affordable land and a favorable business and regulatory climate completed the package,
making Bangor, California our new home.
We started developing the winery property in January 2002. The first acre of zinfandel was planted in the spring of 2005. We officially opened the winery doors to the public on Motherís Day 2011.
We personally do all aspects of the wine production and management with much needed and appreciated help from our children, family, and awesome wine club..

On this day it was the annual North Sierra Wine Trail and Hickman's had quite a line of eager tasters.
Bocce ball court and nice shaded area to enjoy the beautiful weather.

One of the few wineries that have room for a limo full of anxious tasters.
