  • After decades of managing and consulting for the most exclusive wineries in Napa, Jim Barbour began cultivating grapes for his own wine in 1992. In a gravel and loam-soil vineyard just south of St. Helena, he grafted budwood from famed Grace Family Vineyards, and was on his way to producing high caliber Cabernet Sauvignon. With Heidi Peterson Barrett as winemaker, the team has focuses on high quality in the vineyards and cellar. Barbour harvests only one-to-two tons per acre and strives to maintain a well-balanced vine with little to no irrigation during the year. Since their first vintage of 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon, production has steadily increased, but remains well below 1,000 cases.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
