Santa Rosa, Calif. – Foley Family Wines (FFW) is pleased to announce the growing Banshee Wines brand will move into an expansive new home in Geyserville, 15 minutes from downtown Healdsburg. The new location is situated at the base of the Mayacamas mountain range in Alexander Valley surrounded by estate vineyards. Revered as one of the architectural standout wineries in Sonoma County, the modern winery facility won the AIA Architectural Design Award for Northern California. The property was formerly the tasting room for Foley Sonoma wines, which now will be available to wine club members and on the Foley Food & Wine Society website. Foley Sonoma Wine Club members will receive additional details on wine club and member specials.
Banshee is one of the top 10 Ultra-Premium wine brands in California growing at 44%. All wines in the portfolio are currently growing, led by Pinot Noir (+39%), Cabernet Sauvignon (+25%), Sauvignon Blanc (+116%) and Sparkling (+319%) Wine.* The wines are crafted from Sonoma County and select California AVA by Winemaker Alicia Sylvester.
The new Banshee Wines hospitality center will open on November 30, 2023, for indoor and outdoor tasting experiences. The facility is also available for weddings and special events. Banshee will celebrate its annual “Holiday at the Estates” the weekend of December 2-3. Details are available in the event sections of the Banshee Wines and Foley Food & Wine Society websites.
The space previously occupied by Banshee in downtown Healdsburg, will close on November 6, 2023 and will reopen on November 24, 2023 as The Society: Healdsburg.
