Current Balistreri Wine List

Below you will find a list of our current featured wine list. They are organized in terms of body with our “white” wines first, followed by lighter reds, bold reds and finally dessert wines. 

Our wines are made completely naturally without the use of sulfites or other additives. Only grapes that are hand-harvested are used to make the wine. All of which are selected from high quality single vineyard sites across Colorado and occasionally California. To learn more about our winemaking philosophy, please visit our history page.

    • 2018 Colorado Viognier (Talbott Vineyard)

    • $26.00
    • Viognier is the perfect varietal to ferment as an “Orange Wine” because the extended skin contact only accentuates the full and rich body the grape is already known for. Structured and fruit forward, this Viognier has notes of pear and apricot.

    • 2019 Carignan
    • 2019 Carignan

    • $34.00
    • This Carignan was aged in neutral American oak barrels. Fresh out of the bottle it shows tart plum and raspberry on the nose. As it opens up though the fruit moves more towards a dried or candied fruit with a touch of baking spice. The mouthfeel is very juicy and bursting with cranberry and red flavors. It has a good tannin structure that balances the fruit and riper qualities of the wine beautifully. We personally enjoy these riper styles of wine when they are younger (between 1 and 5 years of age) as they really highlight the bursting fruit flavors and lovely smooth tannin structure.

    • 2018 Colorado Zinfandel | (Black Vineyard)

    • $32.00
    • The new vintage of Black Zinfandel is a great example of the elegant side of the varietal. There's plenty of fruit, but it maintains a vibrant, exuberant freshness that's often absent in large production examples. Further, it has a subtle tangy spice character that makes it an interesting choice for food pairing. Don't worry though, it tastes great on its own too! This might be the most approachable, easy drinking Zin we've produced so far.

    • 2019 American Sangiovese -24 Month Barrel Aged

    • $34.00
    • Sangiovese - a traditional Italian varietal that we at Balistreri have been producing since our second vintage in 1999! Sourced from old vines in the Amador Country growing region of California, these grapes were crushed and fermented here in Colorado and aged for 2 whole years in the barrel. The extended time in old oak barrels presents rustic sensation of roasted cherries, almonds, fresh earth and tobacco on the palate to this Sangiovese - akin to its classic Chianti counterparts.
