About the wine

Karen's savory, smooth red is an Italian classic with a Lodi twist
  • After an extra year of aging in premium American Oak barrels, Karen’s Reserve Barbera is finally here! Complex and sleek with tastes of juicy, tart cherries, luscious strawberries and a touch of peppery spice, this Reserve is what happens when first-rate Barbera levels up.

  • Though it’s a classic, top-tier red wine in Italy, Barbera is a rarity in California. Karen had a hunch that she could make Barbera just as well on the West Coast, so she set out to find a rare vineyard or two – and prove it. 

  • With a little luck and Angel support, Karen uncovered a single vineyard of Barbera growing in her home region of Lodi and ciao bella – with flavors so lush and fruity and a barrel-aged texture so polished and smooth, this is the Lodi Barbera to give Italy a run for its money!

Best before
This wine will taste the best if you can wait a few months to open it.

Serving advice
Let it rest in your cellar, be patient and enjoy it any time over the next few years.

Food match
Wild mushroom risotto, meatballs with gnocchi or wine-braised short ribs.

Meet the winemaker - Karen Birmingham

  • Karen Birmingham proved her incredible talent working for years at sustainable winery LangeTwins (with David Akiyoshi).  
  • Angel funding has helped her start her own project featuring breathtaking grape varietals many Lodi wineries are afraid of playing with!
  • Karen's delicate touch always brings out the best in the fruit (she's won back-to-back Gold and Double Gold medals to prove it!) and really makes these grapes shine in the warm, sandy soils she calls home.
