Judged # 1 Pinot Noir in North America in the 2019 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competiton, TWICE. Two Halleck Vineyard wines owned the Pinot Noir category. 7200 wines competed.
A family one-acre site, Halleck Vineyard is perched above the Russian River Valley and flanked on the west by the slopes to the Pacific Ocean. A passion for Pinot leads the charge. Our Estate Pinot Noir was judged #1 Pinot Noir in the U.S. in 2003.
Enjoy the afternoon learning, tasting and enjoying. This is a seminar that touches all the senses. In an idyllic West Sonoma County setting at the home of Halleck Vineyard, savor the wines that continue to draw accolades paired with local organic artisan cheeses, handmade chocolates of Pinot Noir, and organic delectables from Sebastopol. As you sit by the fire pit next to the vineyard or on the deck overlooking all of Sonoma County, you will drink in the good life that Ross and Jennifer love to share with their guests. Of course, you will be hosted by the vintners, regarded as pioneers in the high reaches of this Sonoma Coast vineyard. It will be memorable. Join them in celebrating community with their extraordinary fruits of the earth.
We use a variety of farming techniques to achieve extraordinary fruit, one in an infinite number of secrets to creating great wine. We choose specific clones, site location and flavor profiles. We consistently walk the rows, paying attention to the subtleties of the vines, the architecture of the clusters, the diurnal fluctuation of the leaves, the texture and flavor development of the seeds.
Farming grapes is both science and art. Our role is to shepherd the fruit to its greatest expression using guidance and inspiration of both.
