Our Barbera grapes come from one of the most highly sought-after vineyards in California. Shake Ridge Vineyard is in the Sierra Foothills along a ridge 1,650–1,810 feet above sea level, overlooking the town of Sutter Creek. Renowned grower, Ann Kraemer is one of the most highly respected figures in the wine world. In short order, this vineyard has proven to be a true star. Ever changing layers of fruits, spices and herbs are the back drop to this multi-faceted Old-World style Barbera.
We are so enamored with Ann’s expertise, we decided to add her Zinfandel grapes to our portfolio. Our first release is the 2015 Zinfandel and is completely meeting the lofty standards from Ann’s vineyard that we aspire to and has proven itself with a 92 point score in Wine Enthusiast.
