WHY WE LOVE IT

Sagemoor Vineyard is fabulous in every way.  Its is farmed incredibly well, has great elevation and exposure, and they have Barbera which has become on of our favorites wines to produce each year. We work closely with their vineyard Manager to ensure that slow-ripening occurs, because we want lots of flavor at lower sugar levels

BARBERA

2018-06-28 10.35.37.jpg

We have been lucky enough to pull Barbera from this sought after site since the winery was started, and we wouldn't have it any other way. The bright fruit, integrated tannins and rich acid that we have come to expect from our Barbera each year makes it one of our most compelling wines. It really is a varietally correct Barbera with new-world edge!
