BALISTRERI VINEYARDS

Holiday Wine List

Wow, here we are, December 2020. The holiday season is already in full swing. Around the winery we are pushing forward and bustling about to provide the best holiday experience we can for our amazing customers.
 
In the cellar we continue to bottle and release the 2019 vintage. We have great deals on holiday wine packs below that we are excited to share. In the kitchen our chefs are cooking delicious winter meals. We love the Italian Wedding Soup for shaking of the cold weather. And, Birdie and Julie are cranking away at making holiday baskets and baking festive cookies to share.
 
If your family is anything like ours, you are likely also very busy getting things together and navigating the holidays. That is why we made this email into a special holiday guide to make that navigation a little more simple. From gifts to at home meals, if you are looking for something special for the holidays, check out our specially priced offerings below.
 
As always, thank you for all the support! We wish you a happy and healthy holiday season!

We are open everyday of the week from 11am to 5pm excluding Thanksgiving day and Christmas day when we will be closed. As always, we are offering these wines for curbside pick up or shipping. If you are planning on shipping these wines in time for thanksgiving day, please order as soon as possible! We will try and ship out the day your order is placed.

  • 2019 Colorado Pinot Noir
    • 2019 Colorado Pinot Noir
    • 2019 Colorado Pinot Noir

    • $55.00
    • This special Pinot Noir was grown in the West Elks AVA of Colorado. It was farmed with biodynamic principles, without the use of chemical sprays, instead preferring holistic and natural approaches in the vineyard. As always, we produced the wine without chemicals or sulfites, fermenting the fruit whole cluster on it's own wild yeasts. Coming from a cooler climate than the rest of our wines, this beautiful Pinot Noir has tremendous energy and lift. The acidity is backed by sturdy tannins on an otherwise light bodied wine. Only two barrels of this special Pinot Noir were made.

    • 2018 American Grenache

    • $36.00
    • While some Grenache can be quite rugged, this vintage embraces the more elegant side of the varietal. Light bodied, yet complex, this has expressive and refined notes of dark cherry, baking spice and rose petal. On the palate, the wine is graceful with gentle tannins and beautifully integrated acidity.

    • $38.00
    • This forgotten grape is sourced from old vines in the historic Amador County of California. The older vines naturally create amazing concentration and purity of fruit. Even with ample ripeness, it’s still balanced, nuanced and extremely easy to drink.

    • 2019 American Primitivo

    • $32.00
    • Primitivo is back! This wine comes from grapes harvested in Lodi and is made in our natural, old school Italian style. Extremely luscious, a  kaleidoscopic medley of ripe fruit tones burst from the glass, while the palate remains rich, creamy and smooth.

    • 2019 Colorado Cabernet Sauvignon | (Whitewater Hill)

    • $36.00
    • Whitewater Hill is one of the most singular and distinct vineyards for Cabernet in all of Colorado, and our latest rendition is one of the best in recent memory. Pure bramble fruit and focused acidity make this Cabernet an elegant but powerful wine that is stunning today, but will only further reward in the cellar.

    • $56.00
    • An extra year in our American Oak has afforded this wine the time to develop and mature without compromise. This is truly a combination of elegance and power with classic flavors, unbelievable aromatics, and fine detail. On the nose is an amazing display of fresh herbal notes (sage, fresh dill, dried violets), but without any hint of bitterness. Magnificently dark in color, this wine has incredible depth with notes of vanilla, black raspberry and subtle spice.
