Hatcher Winery

Open daily in downtown Murphys, Hatcher is very popular among locals and regulars. Its hidden location and underground tasting room coupled with their powerful, yet balanced and textured wines makes it a coveted stop.

Matthew Hatcher is owner and winemaker, and his wine making talents have put Hatcher on the don’t miss list of Foothill wineries.. He’s assisted by his brother/partner, Sewell Hatcher and assistant winemaker Scotty Hancock.

Matt’s commitment as an owner/winemaker is to work with the vineyard managers in growing premium fruit complimented by the best oak barrels to suit the wines. He manages the vineyard with the same level of integrity, producing the Estate Zinfandel that has been so well received.

Our wines cover a wide spectrum of tastes and are reasonably priced. Current production is from fruit grown in the Sierra Foothill region. Our commitment is to this region, but when necessary, we will seek the best fruit from other areas as well. Matt’s wine making style is still evolving as he learns new and innovative viticulture and wine making practices to yield powerful, yet balanced, red wines, and white wines with classic aromas, rich textures and lingering flavors of French oak.

We invite you to visit Matt and Sewell, and enjoy our wines in the historic cellar tasting room.
