Balverne at Notre Vue 

Balverne Wines is produced at Notre Vue Estate Winery and Vineyards, our 710-acre Estate filled with diverse terrior and rich tapestry with breathtaking views of Mount St. Helena to the east and the Russian River Valley to the West. Our winemaker, Michael Westrick, draws on rich, diverse vineyard sources that feature a variety of elevations, exposures, soils and microclimates. With knowledge borne of deep experience, his approach to winemaking encourages the highest expression of personality, intensity and distinction in each varietal we produce.



Our incredible landscape is not just merely for enjoying the scenery, but inspires and invigorates a healthy, active lifestyle.  From group hikes, and Qigong / Tai Chi activities with a local health club, to organzied 5K runs with Fleet Feet Santa Rosa,  there is something for everybody to help you stay active. After each event we offer a refreshing, complimentary wine tasting.


Tour de Cru

Our annual “The Balverne Tour de Cru,” is a wonderful day filled with fitness and adventure. Notre Vue Estate opens its gates for guests to hike and bike along private trails that wind through its vineyards. During the morning, guests can explore the diversity of the terroir that creates a rich tapestry of land. At the Summit, hikers and cyclists will be rewarded with sweeping views of mount St. Helena to the east and to the west, as far as the Pacific Ocean.  This year's event takes place August 4th, 2018.

A Place of Trees

Balverne began making wine in 1972 a tour founding vineyards. In tribute to that heritage we have resurrected the majestic Red Tailed Hawk design of the original label and maintained the Anglo-French name that is based on the beauty of the site as a “Place of Trees.” By cultivating wines with distinctive profiles that expressly link them to their terroir, Balverne is committed to unwavering quality at the highest level. Balverne wines include award winning, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
