Burgundian-defined elegance, amongst forest ferns and apple orchards, this organically farmed vineyard located in Russian River on the outskirts of Sebastopol, Balinard exudes the best of what West County has to offer.  Always a forward thinker, Matt Reidy and regional viticulturist Greg Adams, known as Dr. Dirt, pioneered organic and sustainable farming techniques for his Balinard Vineyard. The 2.5-acre organic Pinot Noir vineyard was planted to clones 115, Calera and a special suitcase Vosne-Romanee selection in 2007.


2021 Auteur Balinard Pinot Noir

Lush with sliced blueberry and sweet cloves, offering rustic overtones of chanterelles, cocoa dust, and red plum. Nervy with finely integrated tannins gaining momentum, creating a lengthy, velour finish.
