We produce limited production quantities of wine which reflect both the individual qualities of the vineyard and our own winemaking skills.
Our goals have not changed. We make great wine, make it available at a fair price, and (most of all) have fun in the process.
The winery is located on Barlow Lane at Occidental Road, just 1/2 mile west of Highway 116 in Sebastopol, California. This is in the Russian River Valley Appellation of Sonoma County.
Vineyard - Wine tastings by appointment only
A family one acre site, Halleck Vineyard is perched above the Russian River watershed and flanked on the west by the slopes to the Pacific Ocean.
It commands an expansive view of the rolling Sonoma County hills to the northeast.
Sebastopol, once the home of the Gravenstein apple, it is now a confluence of outstanding vineyards, excellent soil, a balance of sun and fog, renowned winemakers, veteran vineyard managers, cream of the crop students from Davis, hands-on production facilities and a passion for growing Pinot Noir everywhere you turn. We couldn't be in a more exciting place at a most fortuitous time.
Our desire is to concentrate our efforts in the Sebastopol area to produce the best wines possible from this extraordinary grape growing region.
Our greatest joy is to share a piece of this heaven-on-earth with you in the form of a bottle of Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Dry Gewurztraminer. Please don't hesitate to join us for harvest here.
- Wine Tastings $5 - $25 (Corporate events only, please, in Petaluma)
The Adobe Road Winery in Petaluma, which is located in the center of the race shop, offers an exciting and unique experience for corporate events and Inside Track Wine Club member parties. In addition to the new winemaking facility, many of the cars, trophies, photos and posters from Kevin's racing career are on display.
Guests are treated to an up close look at current operations of Kevin's racing teams. However, the wines are the real prize here. Nowhere else is Adobe Road's driving passion more deliciously obvious than in the very glass you will be holding in your hand during your visit.
Each of our wines is created as part of a small lot, allowing precise quality control to ensure that every bottle is absolutely perfect. From the carefully selected growers and the individually nurtured lots of their grapes, to the precise sorting of the fruit, the first steps are critical for success.
Small tank fermenters and a selection of oak barrels from around the world give us the opportunity to hand-pick the technique and style we craft into each wine. The result is a collection of wines that captures the essence of Sonoma and Napa's finest grapes and vineyards.
Each speaks to a different grower and a different vision of wine, but all speak to Kevin Buckler's deeply personal focus, attention to detail, and drive for perfection.
Wine tastings are only available in Petaluma for events but you can visit our tasting room in Sonoma when you visit the Wine Country.
Fog Winery - Wine Tastings $20
Adrian Fog was born from the idea that Pinot Noir should have a sense of place and that the vineyard is the birthplace of great wine.
All of our grapes are selected for their individuality. Our bottlings are determined by the wine's individuality; our largest bottling is 330 cases and the smallest is 23 cases. Picking, racking, and bottling are scheduled as close to the night of the full moon as possible.

At Dutton-Goldfield, our mission is to produce distinctive wines that display the brightness of fruit, complexity, structure and balance that are reflective of our cool coastal home.
Dutton-Goldfield Winery began with a handshake in a vineyard in 1998, when longtime colleagues and friends Steve Dutton and Dan Goldfield recognized a shared vision between them, to craft wines that express the personalities of their cool-climate vineyards, and which they'd enjoy drinking at their own dinner tables.
We focus primarily on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with a bit of Syrah, Zinfandel, and other fun wines when opportunities come our way.
High atop the Laguna de Santa Rosa, our well-appointed tasting room boasts
one of the most beautiful views in Sonoma County. Come to try our
award-winning wines and stay for locally sourced artisanal cheeses or a
gourmet lunch served on our sunny patio.
