A group of 8 60 year old ladies visited this winery for wine tasting. The price was $12 each for the tasting and the tour. You get to taste at least 12 wines and are told the different locations the grapes come from. Julie, one of the owners, gave us a delightful tour. We chose to eat lunch at the winery and were so glad we did. Your choices were mostly sandwiches, which were wonderfully prepared. We chose to eat outside because the day was lovely. Great service. There is also a small store on location.

I have never been to a Vineyard before and this was a wonderful experience! I went with my fiancée for a wine tasting to chose our wine for our toast at our engagement party. This was so awesome. While tasting numerous wines we where entertained with beautiful views and stories about each wine and the history of the family owned place. I believe the young man serving us was a grandson :) I want to go again to pick out our wedding wines! We are also considering using this place in some way for our wedding or reception or dinner :)

This is one of the few wineries that actually looks like one when you pull up. It has a huge tasting bar and they are extra generous on your trying every thing on the menu. There are over 15 bottles of wine that you will try. If there are more than one group of people trying it only seems like the owner's wife is doing the sampling. She is amazingly sweet with her stories and she will spend lots of time answer questions. But, don't be in any hurry. We allowed 30 minutes to be here but it was well over an hour. Even the owner stopped in to say hello. I loved the Cabernet, the Syrah and the Cherry. They will box the wine up for you to ship or take home on the plane with you.

Visited on Mother's Day with wife. We had hoped for a nice weekend but if you were there you know it snowed the night before to ruin our sightseeing plans. But the warmth of Balistreri saved the day. Without reservations ( you don't need them but as this attraction grows if you have a group call ahead) Greeted by the grandson, we set upon a lively tasting, (and I'm a beer drinker who usually passes on ordering wine). My wife loved the history and discussion of the wines offered. And this was mixed with a lunch - She had the tomato soup with goat cheese. (She claims the best tomato soup ever) I had the sliced chicken on a baguette along with a apple, pear, strawberry, cheese crackers appetizer. Soon afterward, the winemakers wife took us on a tour..The facility brings in their grapes from outside basically into the basement and ferments them the old fashioned way ( no sulfates, no additives). And you then realize they cork each bottle, wax it, and apply a label all by hand one bottle at a time. The whole mom and pop approach a refreshing experience. Hidden in the industrial part of town the modern clean building was an oasis on a snowy Mother's day. And of course we ordered a case shipped back home. Our only regret is not remembering the grandson's name, a wonderful host.
