Barefoot Cellars is a testament to California ingenuity and free spirit, offering excellent quality and value without the need for pretense. Davis Bynum created the first run of Barefoot called Barefoot Burnam Burgundy in his garage in 1965. The name came from the ancient and effective practice of crushing grapes with your feet. The winery was renamed Barefoot Cellars in 1986 by its new leaders Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey who created the now-familiar foot print label.
Winemaker Jennifer Wall, has grown the brand from the original four wines to more than 30 in their collection. Grapes sourced from throughout California serve to create a beverage that is delicious and offers a fun, whimsical approach to wine, rather than snobbishness.
Barefoot Pinot Noir has rich aromas of black cherries, raspberries and vanilla blossoms. Rich and juicy on the palette the wine offers a silky smooth texture, positively dripping with black cherry, vanilla and hints of fall baking spices. This Pinot Noir is a versatile food parter, matching well with seafood, chicken, steak or pork. Try it with a dish of olive oil poached salmon, sautéed mushrooms and roasted root vegetables.
