Jim Ball Vineyards
The Pinot Noirs from Jim Ball Vineyards stand apart from many others, even prize-winning cult wines, for a number of reasons. Perhaps the most compelling is that they consist exclusively of Estate Fruit. Fruit that is grown on the land we own. Fruit that, from bud break to harvest, is farmed exclusively by our in-house team of local vineyard experts. Rather than hope to find fruit that meets our exacting standards purchased from outsiders who often farm to their own standards, or purchase fruit that someone grows soley to make a profit, we raise the wine ourselves from the ground up, from choosing the clone to the pruning to the way the vine and the sun and the earth make the grape. Sustainably.
