Bernat – our vines, our wines. As a small boutique producer, our children have grown up with our Bernat vineyard as their backyard, helping with harvests, and observing the cycles of the seasons through the vineyard. This daily devotion to the vineyard, where all great wines begin, is infused in every bottle. Our CCOF-certified organic grapes are hand-harvested and minimally processed using old-world methods of winemaking. Patience and respect for the process nature has provided make our Sangiovese, Syrah, Nebbiolo, Cabernet Sauvignon, and the Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Cafe Red Blend true expressions of their place and the story they want to tell.
Nebbiolo Tasting Notes: Produced from a half-acre section of our CCOF organically farmed vineyard in Los Olivos. Stored in French oak barrels for 2 ½ years. The 2017 Nebbiolo cheerfully declares itself a more quaffable style. Think Langhe instead of Barolo. What it lacks in density, it makes up for in energy. A lot of classic notes. Red cherry, rose petals, that tarry minerality. The tannins have just enough presence to support the mouth-watering acidity. Crunchy!
