Best in the world - again!


The Sunset Magazine International wine competition results are in for 2016. Last year we were humbled and astonished to have our 2012 Vina Moda Barbera awarded gold and Best in Class in the 2015 International competition. Nathan has outdone himself though and we are over the moon to be able to announce that our 2013 Barbera was also awarded gold and Best in Class again! This means that of all the Barbera wines they tasted, from all over the country and world - ours was considered the best - two years in a row!

2015 Harvest is here


Harvest season is upon us - early this year! It is looking to be another excellent year. A little lower yields this year due to the drought, but this drop in yeilds corresponds with an increase in concentration and flavor so it is looking like another excellent year!




It's another Gold!

We did it again! The judges at the California State Fair wine competition have just released the 2015 results. With over 3000 entries from some of the biggest names in wine being judged, it was a very tough field to compete in. Once again though, Nathan has done himself proud with another set of medals!
