Clonal Vineyard Tour of Hallberg Ranch
Join Emeritus for a once-in-a-lifetime afternoon! Vineyard Manager Kirk and President of Fun Mari will take you on an in depth walking tour of the Hallberg Ranch estate vineyard (one of the largest dry-farmed vineyards in the state) to taste the difference in clones. Hallberg Ranch has eleven different clones of Pinot Noir planted. Clones are cuttings made from Pinot Noir vines that overtime have developed slight genetic differences. These differences are expressed by varying flavor profiles. Our wine is made by blending them together, but as we approach harvest and the fruit ripens the difference between these selections becomes most apparent. Kirk and Mari will take you through the vines to taste the grapes of many clones right at the cusp of harvest. This is a unique experience for the geekiest of wine geeks and novice drinkers alike.
After the vineyard tour you’ll be treated to a special tasting paired with local snacks on our terrace overlooking the vineyard.
Open to club members and their guests, please email or call for more information.
Experience fall in wine country! See the vines as they change colors and enjoy the bounty from the harvest. Follow our harvest trail through Hallberg Ranch on the same journey our grapes take from vine to crush pad. Along the way you’ll meet our Vineyard Manager Kirk, Winemaker Nicolas, Founder Brice and more of the team. Throughout the vineyard there will be stops for you to enjoy our newest releases paired with small bites. Your tour ends at the crush pad where your wine club shipment will be ready for pick up! You will leave as a wine expert and your taste buds will be satiated!
Tickets are $40/person and can be purchased here. Club members receive four complimentary tickets.
