Balletto Vineyards’ Winemaker Anthony Beckman

On this show Anthony shared a crazy story of how this former newspaper journalist saw the writing on the wall, so to speak, and pursued a career that supports his other love, good food and excellent wine…that he now makes. Owner John Bellotto chimes in as well with a (nearly) post-pandemic update on the winery .

Anthony and I hit it off right away. I enjoy hearing how people were inspired to get into the wine industry, especially if they leave a previous career. As a former wine club member of Balletto I know the their product fairly well but never had a chance to spend time with Anthony. They’ve gone through some changes so it was good to catch up. And boy, he started me off well…
