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. Wines provide a voice for the connection between the earth, the vine and the elements. Eliza is the voice for Barsotti Vineyards, as told through the many varietals we planted there in 2010 with the legendary Ron Mansfield.
Tasting Note: On the nose, you’ll sense the aromas of just-ripened pears, yellow apple and fresh rain. As soon as you take a sip, your palette will liven up with hints of apricot, salted mango and sliced kumquat. Eliza’s allure lies in the wine’s ability to show off each varietal’s character and complexity. The wine’s zippy salinity pairs elegantly with foraged mushrooms and squash ravioli. Enjoy on a chilly but bright Spring afternoon.
