Tasting Notes

Dugger Creek Barbera has become a favorite offering over the past decade. This vineyard-designate wine has a deep ruby color in the glass. The nose and the palate reveal dark red and blue fruits with notes of coffee bean, anise, and white pepper. This is one of our favorite wines to pair with food. Enjoy with wood-fired pizza, Taleggio cheese and charcuterie, porcini mushroom risotto, or a handmade pasta with homemade puttanesca tomato sauce. Or, simply enjoy this rich, silky wine while relaxing and dreaming of your next vacation. Salute!
