Celebrating the goodness that flows from the vine
Hale Mary 2012 has just been released as of October 2014. All previous vintages have sold out due to popular demand! Please email mary@halemarywine.com to order this delicious Russian River Pinot 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 2012*
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 2012 is now produced at Freeman Wintery in Sebastopol, and is our finest vintage yet and only the fourth to be made available to the public. This luscious wine has deep dark color, incredibly rich fruit and complexity, with wonderful balance.
