Winemaker's Notes

Our family's Barrelli Creek Vineyard is located in the temperate, Region III hillsides of Sonoma Countys Alexander Valley; on a site first planted by Italian immigrants over a century ago.

We meticulously shoot positioned, cluster thinned, and hand harvested grapes for this wine from only the finest blocks at Barrelli Creek Vineyard.
