The Barbieri Vineyard represents a homecoming of sorts. We purchased fruit from the Barbieri Vineyard almost 15 years ago. At that time the vineyard was planted to Zinfandel and produced a superb wine, although the vines were declining in health. It was obvious that the vineyard needed to be replanted and, when the property sold it was replanted to Pinot Noir. Now, after some years (and another sale) we once again have access to this superb plot of land. Though it is different walking rows that were once planted to head-trained vines and are now younger, vertical-shoot positioned vines –the contours of the land, and the outstanding quality of the wine that is produced from it, remains.
