Seghesio Family Vineyards

2016 Barbera
2016 Barbera
91 POINTS - Wine Spectator

Edoardo Seghesio immigrated to America from the Piedmont region of Italy, home to Barbera. In 1895, he planted his first vineyards to grapes he had come to enjoy in his new country, yet one vineyard was saved for varietals from his homeland. Our historic, proprietary Barbera clones benefit from the warm, dry days in northern Alexander Valley, where the grape’s classic acidity creates a wine with vibrant aromas and a velvety texture. This wine is 100% Barbera from our Estate Home Ranch in Alexander Valley.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Juicy blackberry and spice aromas burst out of the glass, followed by flavors of black plum, graham cracker and buttery pastry dough. The wine has a rich texture supported by a backbone of acidity, making this delightful to sip on its own or pair with food.
Food Pairing Notes
Tomato-based pastas and meaty ragouts, grilled pork tenderloin, mushroom risotto, and hard, aged cheeses.


Long, warm days aided by the absence of marine influence marks this site. The soils are composed of clay and clay loam with underlying layers of basalt, sandstone and serpentine rock. Vines are challenged by the low nutrient level of the clay and the shallow topsoil, both which force them to produce more concentrated fruit.
