Located on Adelaida Raod, Halter Ranch Vineyards is receiving patrons in their new hilltop tasting room. New accommodations include vista views, multiple standing bars and indoor/outdoor seating for groups. Enjoy a tasting flight ($15) of single varietals and red blends, waived with a bottle purchase. Outside food items are welcome in the patio area and al carte items like cheese and baguettes are sold in the tasting room. This label is part of the local movement for sustainability. The entire property is 2,200 acres but only 281 have been planted with vines. Halter Ranch strives to maintain the ecosystem while cultivating fruit in their vineyard. Rainwater is used for irrigation and prey stands help to attract hawks and owls. Complementary winery and cave tours (11 a.m.-1 p.m.) are given daily. Reservations are needed for the Barrel Tasting tour ($30) and Land Rover Excursion ($45). Guests that have previously seen the estate may recall the English style home that once served as the tasting room. This house was part of the 1990 movie Arachnophobia staring Jeff Daniels and John Goodman. The house is still available for outside photo opportunities free of charge.
