THE PINOT PASSION AWARD FOR 2005

The Pinot Report, published by Greg Walter, former president of the Wine Spectator, recently won The James Beard Association Award for publishing. Each year The Pinot Report offers recognition to those who devote their lives and livelihoods to growing, making and enjoying great Pinot Noir. Greg’s fourth annual “Pinot Passion” Awards showcase the people and their very special wines that he believes makes Pinot Noir so different than other wines. Halleck Vineyard was among the 10 wineries selected for 2005 of over 400 considered.
