Dunne on Wine: Montevina Winery gives starring role to barbera

April 04, 2013

Last year's acreage report pegged barbera at covering just 6,659 acres, up only a few hundred acres from a decade earlier. That compares with almost 100,000 acres given to chardonnay, 80,000 to cabernet sauvignon, 48,000 to zinfandel and 45,000 to merlot.
