More about this wine from Central Coast, California
If you’re a lover of history, you’re going to love all the backstory behind this bottle of Merlot. In the very early 20th century, Phillip and John Bargetto emigrated from Castelnuovo Don Bosco, a small town in the Piedmont region of northern Italy to San Francisco. They began making wine and even continued through Prohibition, making batches for family and friends. When the booze embargo ended in the ‘30s, they established their winery around the Santa Cruz Mountains; and their pursuit of excellence and innovation in winemaking continues to this day with the third generation of Bargettos at the helm. It’s from the Central Coast Region of California, a cool growing area with a variety of microclimates and soil types, that this 100% Merlot was sired. This wine is young and vibrant and smooth and ready to drink!
How to drink it

Pro Tip:

Cali Merlots do well with so many foods, but especially ones that are heavier. Try out something like a burger with your choice of cheese. Like this Smash Burger, loaded with lots of goodies.
