Boeger Winery, now in its 45th year of operation, remains a true family winery. Started in 1972 by the husband and wife team of Greg (winemaker and vineyard manager) and Sue Boeger (business and marketing end), son Justin is now the winemaker and daughter Lexi handles the marketing. Quite an achievement. The wines have always been excellent in quality and fair in price. And this Barbera is no exception.
The 2015 Barbera is, in my opinion, one of the best I have ever tasted. It is not the typical California style of ripe fruit with no acidity, nor the extreme Italian style of crisp acidity with little fruit expression. Rather it is the perfect blend of both. With aromas of dark cherry and red currant, a rich, lush mouthfeel, and a nice touch of acidity on the finish, this wine is a perfect food wine. I think you can enjoy this wine with many Italian dishes. I know I have and will continue to do so.
For the entire month of March 2017, we are offering the 2015 Boeger Barbera at the reduced price of $36 per 750 ml bottle and $9 per glass. I’m certain you will love this Barbera.
Only a 40-45 minute drive from midtown Sacramento, Boeger Winery is located at 1709 Carson Road, Placerville, CA 95667. The Tasting Room is open daily from 10 am until 5 pm. Tel: (530) 622-8094. Well worth a visit.
