SAFE SHIPPING TIP: Summer weather is challenging for safely shipping natural wine. We strongly prefer a business address where an adult is available to sign on the first delivery attempt which avoids our unfiltered wines riding around on a hot truck all day.

Making wine is the most humbling and magical of endeavors. Our signature white blend, Eliza is the voice of Barsotti, speaking for: Clairette, Picpoul, Vermentino, Roussanne & Grenache Blanc. This wine’s allure lies in its ability to show off each varietal’s character and complexity. Pairs elegantly with foraged mushrooms and squash.

Tasting Note: Eliza’s allure lies in the wine’s ability to show off each varietal’s character and complexity. On the nose, you’ll sense the bright aromas of lemon zest, a touch of creamy sweetness and a perfume of pear blossom. As soon as you take a sip, your palette begins a beautiful journey from the tip of your tongue where the acidity tingles your mouth awake to the weight of the creamy, round, and soft texture which shows just a bit of oak influence that is balanced with acidity. Finally the flavor is captured on the roof of your mouth with flavors that linger on as a fond memory, well after they finish. The wine’s zippy salinity pairs elegantly with a spicy sashimi, or a dish of lemon buttered scallops and charred broccolini.
