June 17, 1996: On this day, Halter Ranch vineyard was initiated with recognition and continued to grow until it reached its current size of 200 acres. Halter Ranch is home to twenty different grape varieties planted on the property’s steepest and most south-facing slopes. These slopes reach a height of 1,950 feet and get an abundance of sun throughout the day. In addition to focusing on quality in the vineyard, we are also committed to using grape-growing techniques that are friendly to the environment.
