Proprietor, Jim Ball, fell in love with Northern California, its juxtaposition of rugged Pacific Coast and orderly vineyard rows. So a search began for the Holy Grail - that sweet spot where Pinot noir could be taken to exalted levels. Jim found it in the mountain top vineyards of Boonville. Jim Ball's Pinots are a prime example of earthy, robust, sexy Pinot Noir - the kind you open with a few close friends by the fire pit or on a quiet night when the cool winds bear a hint of the winter to come. These award-winning cult wines consist exclusively of Estate Fruit.
