The Balo Vineyard is a 7 acre organic vineyard located in the Philo end of Anderson Valley. It was planted in 2001. We consider this vineyard a formidable addition to our vineyard line up. This low vigor site and the Mullins commitment to meticulous and organic farming practices provides us with a solid partnership. The vineyard has a combination of Perrygulch loam and Boontling loam soils. The property sits on a river bench and, as a result, contains a considerable amount of river rock from the days of the creek's formation. This site is also at the base of canyon that draws cold air down helping preserve the excellent acidity along with firmer tannin structure.
Appellation: Anderson Valley
