About the wine

Wine of the Week
  • Lush and fruity with a nice little zing -- these are the characteristics that made Barbera one of the top 3 most planted grapes in Italy.
  • And even though parts of California have the perfect growing conditions, Barbera hasn't really made it big in the US yet (less than 1% of California's vineyards are planted with Barbera!)  As always, Angels are ahead of the curve and get great value.
  • If you like Italian food with a big bowl of red sauce and a big glass of red wine, Barbera is perfect. It's got the zing to accompany all those tomatoes!
