Balistreri Vineyards is a family-owned and operated winery dedicated to making fine-quality wine. John Balistreri’s wines are made completely natural, with a very approachable, easy-drinking style. He combines both traditional winemaking methods and modern technology to produce award winning wines- handcrafted, one barrel at a time, with grapes that are fermented on their own yeast, unaltered by sulfites, unfiltered, unfined, and aged in American oak. The winery and vineyard is located just 10 minutes from downtown Denver. When visiting you will be welcomed by one of the Balistreris: John Balistreri, his wife Birdie, or their daughter Julie. We offer a complimentary tasting of our award winning wines and a tour of our wine cellar and winemaking facilities. The tasting room also offers wine related gifts, antipasti items, and beautiful wine gift baskets. During the summer months (June 1st through September 30th) you can order antipasti from our patio menu during our normal business hours of 12:00pm Read more »

  • J. A. Balistreri Vineyards Merlot Grand Valley Little Feet Lovies 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Balistreri is a different type of wine in that it is unfiltered and there are no sulfites added. Little Feet is a signature wine.
