As grape growers first, we strongly feel that with good grapes comes good wine. We invite you to come taste the bounty that is Balletto.
The Balletto Winery is located in the southwest area of the Russian River Valley in the middle of the 280-acre Balletto family property. The western edges of the ranch border the Laguna de Santa Rosa vital wetland habitat, a home to many species of birds and animals. The Balletto family felt that the area of land they owned along the Laguna was so beautiful that it should be shared with others. They were able to come to an agreement with Sonoma County’s Agriculture Preservation & Open Space District to preserve this land for all those living in the area, and for visitors to our wonderful county! Future visions include a seasonal trail for all to enjoy.
Field of Dreams
Nestled among the chardonnay and pinot noir grapes on the Balletto Winery site is a four acre surprise that delights vineyard workers, staff and management alike. The regulation size baseball field is Balletto Vineyards own ‘Field of Dreams’. It is a gift to the hardworking field staff that enjoys a relaxing game of ball throughout the summer, especially after a stress-filled day harvesting grapes at break-neck speed. John Balletto donated the materials, planting site (prime for grapes) and the workers donated the labor so everyone feels a certain amount of ownership.The baseball field is not visible from the road or the tasting room but can be seen during a self-guided tour of the vineyards:
