Notes written in 2009:
Bialla Vineyards is located on Atlas Peak Road 8miles above Silverado Country Club. We are at 1700 feet elevation and are nestled in a cluster of new and existing neighborhoods such as Pahlmeyer, Elan, and Kongsgaard, to name a few.

We have 4 acres producing and are 100% estate grown. We acquired the property in January 2003, planted some additional new vines, built a new cave (featured in Wine Spectator November 30, 2006) and received our use permit in April 2005.
Our goal is to spare no expense in making the finest wine possible, with a maximum production limit of 500 cases per year. We sell almost exclusively to our mailing list and direct to consumer.

The owners are Vito & Linda Bialla. Our wine maker is Craig MacLean who is very well known and respected in the industry. The vineyard manager is Hector Lopez who managed Caymus for 16+ years before joining Bialla Vineyards in 2005.
