Wine - Pinot Noir - Halcon Vineyards
Paul and Jackie Gordon, own and farm, Halcon Vineyard, to create world class, cool climate wines. Cookie the Vineyard Dog, ever vigilant, can often be found tending to the vines with Paul and Jackie.
Driven by a love of the ethereal wines of the Northern Rhone and impressed by the cool climate characteristics of wines emanating from Mendocino, they searched the Anderson Valley area for a plot of land that could generate truly world-class wine from Rhone varietals. Having found such a site, a site dominated by the same schist soils found in Cote-Rôtie, a windblown, cool mountaintop with a view to the Pacific, they set out to plant a vineyard without compromise.
