The whole berry fermentation has given this red wine complexity and a pleasant expression of fruit. Rich plum, currant, cherry, cedar and a touch of spice elegantly woven together. Has smooth round tannins that finish with depth and complexity. Excellent with spiced pork, lamb, poultry, beef and game meats such as pheasant, venison and rabbit.
The estate winery and vineyards are located on 830 acres of beautiful rolling hills near the Blue Ridge Mountains. We presently have 90 acres of vineyards and continue to expand. Under the direction of Luca Paschina, General Manager and winemaker, Barboursville consistently produces quality wines that have won international recognition. The Zonin family of Italy, brought their strong commitment to produce quality wines to Virginia in 1976. They were the first in the state to plant and successfully establish the revered vitis vinifera vines. The four Zonin brothers, proprietors of the largest Italian privately held wine company, descend from a family that has for centuries been wed to viticulture.
