Dedicated Farming, Delicious Results

Balboa Winery brings together careful vineyard management, sustainable farming practices, and skilled winemaking. We believe that excellent wines begin with the soil and the vines, so we devote careful attention to the health and balance of our vineyards. We source 95% of our fruit from our estate vineyards, and maintain our dedication to the quality of our fruit from the vineyard to to the bottle.

Our partner, Tom Waliser, is one of the most respected grape-growers in the Walla Walla Valley. Tom manages all of our estate vineyards, and additionally manages Summit View, Stone Valley, and several other of the vineyards from which we source our grapes. Our relationship with Tom allows us to control the farming techniques even in vineyards that are not our own estates. This is a distinct advantage, helping us to produce consistently elevated wines.

All of Balboa’s vineyards are Certified Sustainable by Salmon Safe, and use biodynamic growing practices to ensure the health of our vines, as well as that of the environment.
