Ballentine is worth a visit. They are a small boutique winery and they make some good white blends and other less common varietals. We like the Maple Stations white blend and the Chenin Blanc.

Visited with Platypus Tours and thanks to being here at the right time of the year got to see the whole wine making process. Sturdy reds - especially the cab franc - and very helpful and friendly staff (Morgan).
