Visit Historic Estate and Taste Handcrafted Wine 

We invite all wine lovers to visit Ballentine, located just north of St. Helena. Our history dates back to 1906, with stories from Founders Van and Betty Ballentine being highlighted in each experience. Now operated by both third and fourth generation family, we believe in the roots of Napa Valley and want to be authentic to the land we have farmed for over a century. Our goal is to share our story and passion with guests, make approachable, quality wine while being responsible and sustainable in our vineyards.

Our wine tasting experiences focus on wines that are small in production volume and are only available at our winery. These wines have been crafted by Winemaker Bruce Devlin since 1998. His skills in winemaking are broad, making many varieties for every wine drinker ~ Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Visit us to hear our stories and taste our wine on your next trip to Napa Valley.
