About Us.Balentine Family Vineyards and Wineries. Keep It Local.
Bob and Daphne Balentine began making wine together in 1991 that was also the year they were married. What started out as a deep passion and desire for making fine wines, in the confines of their garage, slowly grew into a full time career. In 2003 they quit their day jobs and devoted all of their time to establishing Line Shack Winery. The Line Shack Winery began in an old cowboy cabin located on their family property in Chualar Canyon in Monterey County. Bobs dad affectionately named this old cabin the "Line Shack" which was a place of many family gatherings and celebrations.
The 831 Winery was established in 2012 adding another unique addition to the Balentine Family Vineyards that takes the guesswork out of choosing the very best wines from the diverse Monterey County growing areas all under one umbrella of a unique 831 area code themed label. We hope you enjoy our family of local wines!
