    Winemaker Notes

    The soil profile includes a combination of Perry Gulch loam and Boontling loam soil with the majority of the vineyard planted on the Perry Gulch soil. The property sits on a river bench and as a result, contains a considerable amount of river rock from the days of the creek's formation. In some places these rocks are so plentiful that they're mixed with the soil all the way up to the surface.

    Balo Vineyards is an 8 acre, family owned vineyard located near the town of Philo, CA in Anderson Valley. Originally planted in 1998, the vineyard is comprised of five different clones of Pinot Noir including 115, 777, 828, Martini and Pommard 5 on 101-14 rootstock. The low vigor bench-land site, combined with our commitment to meticulous, organic farming practices, produces world class fruit.

    Anderson Valley

    View all wine

    Surrounded by redwood forests and blanketed in atmospheric fog, the Anderson Valley is one of California’s most picturesque appellations. Centered on the Navarro River, the region is kept cool by moist air flowing in from the Pacific Ocean. High and low temperatures can vary as much as 40 or 50 degrees within a single day, allowing for slow and gentle ripening of grapes which will in turn create elegantly balanced wines.

    The Anderson Valley is best known for Pinot Noir made in a range of styles from delicate and floral to powerful and concentrated. Chardonnay also shines here, and both varieties are often utilized for the production of some of California’s best traditional method sparkling wines. The region also draws inspiration from Alsace and produces excellent Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Gris.

    Rosé Wine

    Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

    Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
