Ross Halleck is a man of many talents and a colorful history. After traveling halfway around the world with a backpack, in his very early 20s he settled in Western Kenya to teach secondary school in a small village on Lake Victoria.

In 1992, Ross developed a Pinot Noir vineyard on the Sonoma Coast, one of the first in the region. After selling the fruit for two years, in 2001 he worked with a local winemaker to create a Halleck Vineyard wine. This was judged the #1 Pinot Noir in the US,  launching Halleck Vineyard. 
Halleck Vineyard focuses on only three varietals, all French: Sauvignon Blanc, Dry Gewürztraminer, and Pinot Noir.
