This is the same grape that goes into Italy's famous and expensive Barolo wines which thrives in the warmth of our Guilford County estate vineyard, resulting in a big, robust red wine. We have only 1/2 an acre (336 vines) of Nebbiolo planted at the winery.
The Nebbiolo always sells out quickly. The current vintage is now available and was aged for 24 months in European oak barrels. This very dry, red wine starts with hints of cherry and cream and finishes with spice and roses with a nice balance of acid and fruit. Pairs well with grilled meats.
