Wine industry insiders buy bulk wine and blend barrels from other well-established wineries to produce value-priced wines. Often the juice is top-notch from wineries that can't sell all of the wine they produce and do not want to lower their prices. Banshee does not give out the names of their suppliers.
The Pinot Noir lineup includes Banshee Santa Lucia Highlands, Rickshaw Sonoma County, and a special magnum only bottling in 2009 - Banshee "The One" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir sourced from an organically farmed Sonoma Coast vineyard made from a single special barrel.
The wines have become quite popular and are sold through the website.
