Balletto Vineyards

Balletto Vineyards
5700 Occidental Road
Santa Rosa, CAMAP

Balletto Vineyards is located in the Russian River Valley AVA. John Balletto owns 100 acres of Chardonnay, 60 acres of Pinot Noir, and 5 acres of Pinot Gris on his family’s 280 acre home estate. In addition to this property, Mr. Balletto owns 3 other vineyards in the Russian River Valley AVA.

He sells most of these grapes to other wineries, but produces a small amount of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Zinfandel. Balletto handcrafted his first vintage in 2001.

The winery recently opened a beautiful tasting room in early 2006. In addition to tasting Balletto’s wines at this facility, visitors can also sample vintages from Dutton Goldfield, another family-owned winery.

The 2004 Balletto Estate Chardonnay is made with grapes grown on the family’s original property. It was aged in French oak barrels for 9 months and underwent 100% malolactic fermentation. 615 cases of this wine were produced.
