  • Great wine starts in the vineyard. It should be no surprize, therefore, that Balletto wines are outstanding. John Balletto is a local guy, born and raised in Sebastopol, who, when his dad died while John was in high school, started growing vegetables with his mom. He grew everything from lettuce, to zucchini, to basil. He began growing grapes, not as a boutique grower with money from the dot com industry, but as a farmer. Then, when you take wine grapes grown by a real farmer, in a region ideally suited to the pinot noir varieties he grows, and turn them over to a gifted and talented and perfectionist team of winemakers headed by Anthony Beckman, the result is some of the finest wines in the world. Don't take my word for it. Go to the tasting room and taste for yourself, and look up the number of awards won every year at the Sonoma County Harvest fair competition. It may be entirely separate from the quality of Balletto wines, but John and Teri Balletto also are deeply involved in our local community and they support many civic organizations and the arts community. For me, that gives Balletto wines an extra richness and depth that transcend fermented grape juice.
  • Great place for a group. Nice outdoor patio. Dog friendly both indoors and outdoors. Specifically loved the rosè of pinot noir. I would come here again :)
  • Jacqueline, the owners daughter, helped us out during the wine tasting. She was very friendly, helpful, and made this a pleasant experience.
  • This place is bigger than I expected. Enjoyed the barrel tasting.
  • Such a great wine tasting in a lovely environment with the most helpful, friendly staff!
