Wine maker notes
Green apple, jasmine, hints of kiwi and peach flavors bubble up for a crisp finish. Bubbling with aromas of Chardonnay, it’s our most traditional bubbly.
n 1965 most people were tinkering with cars in their garage. Davis Bynum was tinkering with wine. He created Barefoot Bynum Burgundy in that tiny room. But our spirited ways really began with our founders, Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey. In 1986, they took a sleepy label and gave it Sole. Both agreed it was time for a wine that didn’t take itself too seriously. So, Barefoot Cellars was created (Bonnie liked the name because it was easy to pronounce) and initially run out of their home. Some say the office was so small you had to go outside to change your mind.
Our founders began with two big varietals that were all about bringing the fun back. California Cabernet Sauvignon and California Sauvignon Blanc. Michael and Bonnie searched for the perfect image to represent their new wine. Finally, Bonnie just rolled out some paper, stepped on the biggest inkpad she could find and left her mark. It’s been on our label ever since.
Through the years, people have gone head over heels for our wine. We’ve received some amazing recognition and professional awards. More importantly, we’ve made some amazing friends. We have a growing circle of Foot Fans who love to enjoy our wine and join us in giving back. That’s something worth toasting to. So come on and join in. Get Barefoot and Have a Great Time!
