About The Vineyard
Hallberg Vineyard is highly sought after for its Goldridge soil and marine influence that comes from its proximity to the coast. It is now the largest dry farmed vineyard in Sonoma County. Hallberg Vineyard has a deposit of clay loam underneath its Goldridge soil that allows the vines to dig deep into the earth for the water stored in the clay.
Barrel Aging: 100% French Oak, 25% New French Oak
