Description

<p>Their wines are made entirely from estate grown grapes, the oldes of which were planted in 1998.  The bulding design incorporates several features which relate to the local agicultural architecture, including apple dryer vents that extend above the roof line</p>
<p>Orginally planted in 1998, Balo Vineyards is a small, family owned winery in the Anderson Valley.  Their wines are made entirely from estate grown fruit and the mature vines, five carefully chosen clones (115, 777, 828, Martini and Pommard) and a world class microclimate all come together in the bottle.</p>
<p>Their vineyards are divided into two distinct blocks seperated by an interior road.  The front block is a rolling bench above Indian Creek comprised of 3.5 acres of clone 777 and 1.25 acres of clone 828.  The back block is comprised of .4 acres of the Martini clone, 1.5 acres of clone 115 and 1.5 acres of the Pommard clone.  The rootstock is all 101-14, the trellis regimen is double arm cordon and their farming practice is organic.</p>
<p>A philosophy that extends into every aspect of their wine growing and wine making activities.  Their commitment to quality includes organic farming practices, harvesting only when true physiological ripeness is reached and a strong belief that minimal handling and intervention during and after harvest makes the best wines.</p>
<p><em><strong>Note</strong> - they are a dog-friendly operation with an outdoor, enclosed dog recreation area and dogs are welcome everywhere on the property.</em></p>
