Product Description

Barbera – It’s Back, Enjoy!

Long legs, timeless beauty and hails from the Piedmont Hills of Northern Italy. We could be referring to an Italian actress; only this is the Barbera grape. The geography of this region is complex – a mix of mountainous, extensive hills, and plains. The countryside is varied offering the rugged peaks of the Monte Rosa massifs, the damp rice paddies of the Vercelleset, and the gentle hillsides of the Montferrato to the plains. Such is the versatility of the Barbera.

While our grapes were grown in the United States, the comparisons with the Sangiovese and Nebbiolo are unmistakable. In the Piedmont region of Italy nearly half of all vine plantings are Barbera across a variety of terriors. Our Barbera comes from California’s cooler Sonoma Valley.

Depending on the climate and soil conditions the Barbera grape gives you a range of experiences. It’s deep ruby color, balanced tannins and acidity interact with our Missouri oak barrels to accentuate even more vibrant aromas and cherry notes. Rich, our Tasting Room Manager, sampled this wine when it was aging in the barrel. He exclaimed “Boy, that is Drop Dead Good.”
The rest is history.

Rich, deep, and pleasing, especially with a red sauce pasta, a steak or some barbeque; this is a satisfying wine that goes down easy with a taste that lingers long.
