Wine, Film and Earth-Lovers Enjoy Halter Ranch

Halter Ranch is a bit off the beaten path, but tasters who travel the long, winding road of Vineyard Drive and Adelaida, earn the retreat provided at Halter Ranch.

The tasting room itself if small, but the wines, service and atmosphere are all good. Nothing stands out in a "Best Ever!" way, but everything is what you want out of a tasting room.

After enjoying some wines, I bought a loaf of delicious bread and a package of herb cheese to share with my friends at the patio tables outside by the big grill. It was beautiful and relaxing to enjoy a snack among the oak trees while looking across the lawn to an historic home that was featured in the movie "Arachnophobia." Ironically, I don't recall seeing any spiders at the winery.

I did see chickens. Mitch Wyss, winegrower, showed me the vineyard's brood. The ladies peck away at insects in the vineyards while also, ahem, depositing little gifts of nitrogen (and such) to the soil.

It's one part of a major focus on sustainability at the vineyard -- and it means free eggs for the employees!

I plan to return to Halter Ranch.
