At Balanza Vineyards, we have just over five acres of pinot noir grapes growing on our nine acre property. We grow our favorite clones of Pinot Noir in our beloved Jory soil native to Dundee Hills. We feature Dijon clones 777 and 667, Pommard, and just a bit of Wadensville for interest. In 2017 we worked with a local winery to produce a small batch estate wine. As our harvest grows we look forward sharing the fruits of our labor with other small local producers.
We are thrilled to announce that we are sipping, sharing, and selling our first two wines.
Our 2017 estate grown Pinot Noir is an expression of our land, our family, and our work towards a more balanced life rooted in the Dundee Hills. Crafted from four distinct pinot noir clones grown in our original vineyard blocks. Deep dark fruit with violet undertones are presented with soft tannins creating an elegant finish that captures a sense of both place and season. We produced just 230 cases and have it available for purchase at our vineyard and available for shipment (due to hot weather, ground shipments will be held until fall). Retail $44, must be 21 to purchase and ship.
Our 2018 Porch Swing Rosé of Pinot Noir is the perfect summer porch sipper. It’s a light summer dry rosé wine with bright fruit notes of strawberry and a touch of watermelon. It’s the perfect shade of pink to help cool off this summer. We produced just 20 cases this year so this wine is only for sale at the vineyard. Retail $24, only available at our Dundee Hills Guest House.
Stay tuned for some exciting news about next year’s rosé projects and a new chardonnay!
