What is Banshee Wines: Banshee Wines was founded by three friends from the Midwest and East Coast who shared a passion for wine and a lifelong dream of owning their own winery. Their fascination with wine started early in life. While their peers were drinking Milwaukee’s Best, they had an afﬁnity towards collecting European wines and hosting dorm room wine tastings. In 2009, they pooled their money together to make the ﬁrst vintage of Banshee Wines Pinot Noir, which sold out in three short months. By the end of the year, Banshee Wines was their full-time pursuit.
Where is Banshee located: The tasting room is in downtown Healdsburg just off the main square at 325 Center St, Healdsburg, CA 95448. 707- 395-0915.
What is the Banshee team about: The Banshee guys are passionate about creating benchmark wines from California’s iconic vineyards as well as crafting soulful blends that don’t break the bank.
Winemaker Noah signing my wine at a recent Wine Club pick up party. I love that he’s hanging with Wine Club members and so cool and down to “autograph” my wine. It makes it that much more fun to enjoy and drink at home and feel connected to the Winemaker personally!
Zack one of the amazing members of the Banshee Tasting Room Team. He’s beyond friendly, knowledgeable and makes every visit that much more fun and memorable. Be sure to tell him you’re a friend of the J.S.F. when you visit!
Why should you visit: If you’re a wine lover who enjoys interesting delicious wines, meaning something that you won’t find everywhere or in Safeway for that fact, Banshee is something you should check out. Most of their Wines are from Sonoma with spectacular Pinot Noirs, Sauvignon Blancs, Chardonnays and a Rose that sells out so quickly you better pray there’s enough for you in 2016!
