Meet the Members: Balanza Vineyard & Guest House

It only took one visit to the Dundee Hills for Chaly and Kerry Balanza to fall in love with the breathtaking land, authentic people and delicate wines. On their second visit to Oregon, they bought “the farm”, a small plot in the Dundee Hills accented by Jory soil, a south-east facing slope, and stunning views of the valley. It soon became Balanza Vineyard & Guest House.

While Chaly and Kerry had never before imagined leaving Texas, they’re thrilled to now be part of the growing community of wine growers focused on Pinot Noir. After planting their first vineyard in 2014, they realized that their hearts and future were fully rooted in Oregon.

Balanza Vineyard is committed to growing Pinot Noir with a sense of place, to cultivating and sharing their beautiful and peaceful vineyard home, and to helping guests connect to the natural beauty and bounty of Oregon’s wine country community. In the Balanza family, food and wine is an expression of love. It’s also a cornerstone of how they care for their wine country guests.
