Single Vineyard Wines
Each single vineyard wine is a unique and exemplary representation of the vineyard block selected. Honoring the Ballentine history, we farm several different grapes well-suited to the terroir. With three different vineyards in Napa, we are able to make a diverse range of wines.
A perfect brunch wine! There is a slight effervescence to the palate and fair amount of sweetness, but the profile is light, airy and refreshing.
Best summer wine ever! This Chenin is our most local farm to table wine...grown, made and bottled within 300 yards of our winery. Refreshing tropical notes of guava and passionfruit are followed by bright citrus and a nutty finish.Our favorite for oysters, seafood, and salads.
Betty Ballentine's notes, “Delicious. Nice and fresh.”
Our love for Petite Sirah goes unmatched. This inky black wine is an explosion of blueberry and boysenberry. Think Sunday morning pancakes with boysenberry syrup, warm and delicious.
"Full-bodied and beautifully perfumed in the mouth, it has a seductively plush texture and long perfumed finish." Lisa Perotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The Cabernet Franc from our oldest vineyard, Pocai has also become Betty Ballentine’s favorite wine. Bright red fruit of strawberry, raspberries and cherries enhance the mouthful. The structure is apparent in this young wine and is full of mocha and butterscotch notes. A combination of earth and hints of roses and pepper pull this wine together.
After more than 100 years of farming experience in this vineyard, we have begun to bottle a single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Pocai Vineyard to showcase this wonderful site. This inviting wine seduces with cherry and raspberry flavors and baking spice aromas, then allows its long, lush finish to be savored.

Fig Tree Vineyard
Stunningly rich, full-bodied, with unctious texture, loads of crème de cassis, licorice and subtle background oak. The wine is approachable now and will evolve over 10-15 years. The palette mirrors the nose, and the soft acidity and silky voluptuousness let the finish linger for some time.

Our Pocai Vineyard is perfectly situated for growing Cabernet Franc. The wine has a vibrant color with flavors of boysenberry and blueberry and chocolate and rose petals. This is a seductive, fruit-driven wine showcasing incredible balance.
