September 1, 2021

Town & Country included Gary Farrell Hallberg Vineyard Pinot Noir in a roundup of the 10 best pinots to drink this fall. The writer explains there is good reason why this varietal is one of the most popular wine styles in the world. “Lighter in the mouth and more fruit-forward than bold reds like cabernet sauvignon, its body and complexity make it an especially food-friendly wine for pairing, while its natural juicy berry flavors make it excellent for all seasons…”

Writer Lauren Hubbard says, “Gary Farrell has made a name as one of the standout producers of pinot noir in the country, making this bottle a must for pinot lovers. The soft, bouncy wine will fill your mouth with notes of ruby red fruit accented by elegant warm spices that make it ideal for cool-weather sipping. ” Read the full story HERE

    Russian River Valley, California

    Named for its previous owners, the 100-acre Hallberg Vineyard is today owned and managed by wine industry veterans including vineyard manager Kirk Lokka. Nestled in the Green Valley sub-appellation, the site enjoys refreshing daytime breezes and cool nighttime temperatures. The strong marine influence means less severe daily temperature shifts so the vines never completely shut down, producing fruit with deep, dark color, great structure, silky tannins, darker fruit flavors and earthy characteristics. This blend is a composition of many of the best blocks on this cool, foggy vineyard site, which include clones 667, 777, 828, Pommard and a mysterious “suitcase” selection.
