Halcon Estates sits at an altitude of 2,500 feet, one of the highest vineyards in California!  In the crowded West Coast wine market, Halcon distinguishes itself with Rhone-line earthiness to balance the California power.  Come try a flight of their small production gems with us!*

*15% of our Featured Winery flight proceeds will be donated to the  Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund to help meet the needs of our Napa County friends, wineries and businesses impacted by the recent earthquake.
