Story

In 1968, with rebellion in the air, Barney Fetzer started a revolution of his own. Through creativity, passion and lots of hard work, he blazed a trail to sustainability. His philosophy was simple: Earth-friendly grapes are better grapes, and better grapes make better wine. It wasn’t easy to buck a century of tradition and inspire an entire industry to change, but then, doing the right thing seldom is.
