Vinification The winemakers hand chose the yeast and used warm fermentation processes which provided great colour, structure and fruit characters to this wine. The storage in stainless steel tank preserved aromas and flavours. Nice ripe fruit devoid of greens, warm fermentation conditions and just the right amount of care and handling result in delicious wine.
History Barefoot Wine & Bubbly got started in California in the 1960s. Its founders believed that wine should be more fun and less serious; and created a wine that could be enjoyed by everyone from first-time wine drinkers to hard-core aficionados. Barefoot Wine & Bubbly is the most awarded and #1 wine brand in the US and was introduced to the UK in 2007. Staying true to its grassroots beginnings Barefoot Wine & Bubbly gives back to local non-profit groups through charitable wine donations.
Regional Information Once the warm weather came in June and July, the grape canopies were managed to allow just the right amount of sunlight on the fruit. Grapes were harvested a little later between August and September.
