OUR WINE

Debuting in 2012, Hanatoro made the first wine entirely of fruit from the Octave Vineyard. Winemaker and owner of Va Piano Winery, Justin Wylie, stewards our wines through their gentle 20 to 22-month oak aging regimens in the very finest French Oak barrels to our specifications. We handle our wines in barrel with absolute minimal intervention, and we work hands on with Justin to carefully blend and craft 150-250 cases of our wines each year.
