Balboa Barrel Program

Winter Barrel Shot

What is the Balboa Barrel Program?

My name is Tom Glase and I have been a wine maker in the Walla Walla valley for the past 20 years. I started Balboa Winery in 2005 in the pursuit of creating world class wines that are a reflection of their varietal, vineyard and vintage.

In 2012 I started selling barrels of wine to certain customers that wanted something special… something that they could share with their families, friends and colleagues. My customers not only wanted great wine, but wanted to find a wine that was uniquely created for them, that no one else in the world would have.

And from that the barrel program was launched.

We think this is an ideal program for those of you who want to have a personalized family label or perhaps a corporate gift for clients and staff. This is a unique opportunity to personalize and “own” your own vintage. You can be as involved with the process as you wish to help us craft the ideal wine for you: from picking the fruit, to processing it to barrel and finally to the bottle.

We invite you to come to the winery and taste through the barrels until you find the one that fits your taste and needs. We can also tailor a barrel specifically to your desires all the way from vineyard to bottle. Our winery is unique in that we have  the ability to produce multiple varieties, in numerous ways to fit multiple styles and tastes, so you can get exactly the wine you’re seeking.

Help with harvest of the fruit in the fall and then come to the winery any time to taste from the barrel and help us design the label for you, or you can bring us a label of your own design for each case.

The grapes are grown by Tom Waliser, who’s attention to detail, and experience are legendary in the Walla Walla Valley. Tom manages multiple grape varieties, both red and white, and the wine can be aged in new or neutral oak as suits your preference.

Working with the customer is integral, so that we can cultivate a wine that is uniquely suited to your tastes and needs. When you open a wine created through the Balboa Barrel Program,  it will be beyond special.
