EXPERIENCE THE SONOMA LIFESTYLE
Your wine tasting with Halleck does not take place in a traditional Sebastopol tasting room. This is our home, and inviting you in is a gesture of intimacy. This family-owned and friendly setting is what makes our wine tasting in Sonoma County so special.
BEST SMALL PRODUCTION SEBASTOPOL WINERY
The 1 acre estate vineyard that surrounds our house was the first in the Sebastopol region, and as pioneers in the area, we feel particularly qualified to share what makes our Sonoma wine tastings so special.
You'll learn about the magic of this wine growing region, from the famed morning fog that blankets our hills, to the soil content from the Sonoma Coast to the Russian River Valley that lends such diversity and character to our wine tastings.
BE A PART OF THE SONOMA DREAM
Our mission is Building Community Through Wine, employing these extraordinary fruits of the earth. So be prepared to discover, explore, and form meaningful connections with others through this very personal 90 minute Sebastopol wine tasting experience.
We believe in shared experiences, and in making the world a better place. We’ve raised over three quarters of a million dollars for the charities supported by our wine club members. Being able to make that difference is what gets us up in the morning.
Wine tasting is an inner journey, and we hope to guide you and join you on that journey – so you can determine for yourself which wines breathe magic into your glass and even your soul.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR VISIT
We want your wine tasting in Sonoma County to be a comfortable one. If you're looking for where to stay in Sonoma for wine tasting, ask about our soon to be opened, newly remodeled private suite.
Above all, come to Halleck Vineyard with curiosity and interest in Sonoma Wineries – and be prepared to thoroughly enjoy yourself.
WHAT TO WEAR
The coastal breeze and morning fog often give way to hot sunny afternoons in Sonoma County, which means you need to be prepared for any weather. That’s why we recommend you dress in layers on the day you join us – and bring sunscreen just in case.
When choosing your outfit, it’s often best to opt for darker colors or patterns that can help hide wine spills should they occur. It’s also best to wear comfortable shoes for your tour of our Sebastopol vineyard.
DELIGHT YOUR SENSES
Since smell is a huge part of the wine tasting experience, you don’t want any scents competing for your attention. So please skip the perfume or cologne. Lipstick or flavored lip balms can also interfere. You may also wish to avoid coffee, breath mints and smoking right before your tasting, as these can mask flavors as well.
DOG FRIENDLY WINE TASTING IN SONOMA COUNTY
Our African Basenji Franki is a nonshedding, hypoallergenic dog who enjoys hosting other pups on our estate, which is 100% fenced to prevent deer from eating our grapes. So if your dog is socialized, wants to run free and play with other dogs, this Sonoma wine tasting experience is going to be a lot of fun for you and your best friend. Our dog Franki is friendly, but also very independent. He does not beg or demand affection. Halleck Vineyard is a dog-friendly estate, and we tend to resonate with dog lovers. We even have a Halleck Vineyard Dog Club. So if you can’t bring your dog, bring a picture.
