Wine Spectator: Jackson Family Acquires Anderson Valley’s Balo

October 15, 2019

Jackson Family Wines has announced the purchase of Balo Vineyards winery, vineyard, and tasting room on Highway 128 in the heart of Anderson Valley in Mendocino County. The purchase includes the 14-acre property, with 6.5 acres planted to organically grown Pinot Noir, a winery with a 7,000-case production capacity, and a tasting room, but not the brand or existing inventory. The purchase price was not disclosed, but the property had been listed at $4.6 million by realtor Mark Stevens.

The Jackson family first invested in Anderson Valley in 1988 when they purchased the Edmeades Estate. The company owns or farms more than 300 acres in the valley today, including Edmeades, Skycrest, Sable, and Maggy Hawk. Most of their Anderson Valley vineyards are planted to Pinot Noir, but they have recently expanded their Chardonnay holdings. Today, the entire company produces an estimated 6 million cases per year across 40 brands and five continents. Wine Spectator has the full story.—MaryAnn Worobiec
