A Decade of Fermentation

Bali's Hatten Wine Turns 10.

The pioneering winery owned by Balinese native, Ida Bagus Rai Budarsa, got its humble start in 1994 by breaking all the rules that govern wine making. Their first Rosé was made with the unconventional Alphonse-Lavalle table grapes endemic to Bali's north coast. Wine experts – usually between sips of Hatten's Rosé – will insist wine simply can't be made from this particular grape. Continually increasing sales of this popular wine suggest the contrary to be the case.

Located in the heart of Sanur, Hatten's Winery has been at work for a decade bringing Bali's hotels and restaurants a taste of Bali in its gradually increasing range of popular wines.

A visit to the coastal plains of North Bali will take you to vast planted areas where the grape vines are all trained into mile after mile of pergolas. In addition to providing shade to the vineyard's workers, this system also reduces the risk of diseases and sunburn on the grapes - all contributing to a better fruit quality and a better tasting wine. Bali's tropical climate makes for the unique character of local winemaking; grapes are continually harvested from evergreen vines and wine can be produced in several vintages all year long.

Since 1999, Hatten's have also produced wine from the Belgia White Grape, a member of the Muscat family.

Alphonse-Lavalle Grapes

Hatten's wine produced from Alphonse-Lavalle grapes consists of the delicate medium dry Rosé, Hatten's first product. Made from the same grape there's also Jepun - created methode champenoise - resulting in a Sparkling Rosé. The surprising Alphonse-Lavalle grapes also produce a young red wine, Hatten's AGA.

Belgia Grapes

In 2002, using Belgia white grapes, Hatten introduced AGA White – a fruity dry white wine together with Tunjung- a dry Sparkling White wine and Alexandria - a bronze medal winner in 2003 London Wine & Spirit competition in the category for semi-sweet wine. Hatten's also produces a limited edition of fortified wine using Methode Pineau des Charentes marketed under the label Pino Bali - available in Red and White versions.

Hatten's Wines 10th anniversary. Something worth popping a cork or two to celebrate!
