Virtual Tasting Options

Our Tasting Room is right inside our working winery in the middle of our iconic Hallberg Ranch Vineyard. You can see the whole operation from grape to glass from the tasting room, or on a tour of the vineyard and winery!

Located just two miles north of Sebastopol, in the heart of Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley, the space opened in 2015. All tastings are seated and personalized, with knowledgeable hosts prepared to educate or casually chat about our winery and wines! The atmosphere is open and elegantly rustic, with a streamlined contemporary flair—a style reflective of our unique Pinot Noirs.

Wall-to-wall glass doors open onto a wide terrace, enabling the former apple barn to showcase breathtaking views of one of California’s most distinguished dry-farmed vineyards. Inside, the barrel stave wall inside was designed and installed by our very own vineyard workers Mark, Cristino, and Emiliano.
