Anderson Valley, California
In the fall of 1851, three young men, trailing a wounded elk, walked out on the rocky point above the spot where Boonville now stands, and looked with delighted eyes at the prospect of a home below. To the west, dark forest covered the hills; the sunny eastern slopes, more open, were marked with shadowed ravines. Across the level valley floor, two small streams flowed to meet and form a creek to Lake County. To the head of their family party, Mr. Walter Anderson, they reported that they had found a big meadow, and it was like a Garden of Eden.
Originally planted in 1998, Balo Vineyards is a small, family owned winery in the Anderson Valley. Our 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 int he bottle.
