400 cases made. These grapes are grown across the street from the winery by Leland Noma. The vines are 26 years old. Barbera grapes originated in Italy. It’s a full bodied wine with black cherry and spice lingering on the finish. Barbera is best grown in hotter climates making Lodi a perfect growing appellation.
