Additional Information

Montevina Winery was started in the Sierra foothills back in 1970, picking up where Prohibition left off. Their first wines were released in 1973, and Montevina quickly became known for robust, full-bodied red wines—especially Zinfandel and Barbera—which revived interest in the historic Amador wine region.

Today Montevina owns and manages 400 acres of estate vineyards, including several notable, old-vine vineyards. Their state-of-the art winery is spectacular.

The Barbera grapes making this wine were hand-picked, destemmed, gently crushed, then sent to stainless steel fermentation tanks. The fermentation is extended a full two weeks allowing more time for extraction and intensity of aroma and flavors. The wine was then aged for 14 months in small oak barrels and oak tanks to accentuate the sweet cherry cola flavors of the Barbera grapes.
