Buy a Bottle (750ml)
Barbera is one the main grapes of the Piedmont region in Italy and has a history spanning over 100 years in California. The grapes for our Barbera Rose is sourced from the Dorn Las Lomas vineyard is located a few miles away from the winery on a gravelly bench overlooking the Big Valley of Clear Lake. The vineyard is one of the most well- manicured vineyards, not a cane out of place, not a weed where is doesn't belong. The Barbera grown here is of exceptional quality.
WINE STYLE & TASTING NOTE
A forty-eight hour cold soak of the Dorn Barbera is how this rosé began. Beautiful pink juice is drained off by gravity and yeast is added to ferment in a separate stainless tank at a cool temperature of 50F. The result is a crisp, refreshing wine. Our Barbera rosé has strawberry, basil, and citrus flower on the nose, with flavors of watermelon, and tropical fruit; with a bright acidic finish. This is a seasonal and very limited release.
Try with a variety of dishes such as Nicoise salad, asparagus and cheese tartines, chicken street tacos, or even bbq pork ribs.
