Celebrating the goodness that flows from the vine
Hale Mary 2010 Pinot Noir is sold out. Hale Mary 2011 is about to be released in early 2013. For those determined to get their hands on some before the official release, please email mary@halemarywine.com or go to Woodlands Market in Kentfield, California, the only retail store that carries it.

"Marin County locals Mary and Anthony Bourke produce a fine Russian River pinot noir that positively exudes the deep dark color and fruit so reminiscent of the terroir of Green Valley. Hale Mary pinot (the pun should need no explaining) was originally produced in the Bourkes' Marin County garage, however they now produce about 300 cases annually at the Freeman Winery in Sebastopol. Hale Mary is featured on many local wine lists and is a real treat." -- BarFly columnist Jeff Burkart in the December 23,2012 Marin Independent Journal

Hale Mary 2011*
98 pts by neighbors and friends. Garagistes Mary and Anthony Bourke and Sean Bourke started making pinot noir in their garage in 2003 in Marin County. Hale Mary 2011 is now produced at Freeman Wintery in Sebastopol, and is our finest vintage yet and only the third to be made available to the public. 2009 and 2010 sold out quickly! This luscious wine has deep dark color, incredibly rich fruit and complexity, with wonderful balance.
