The BARDEN trade name is Doug Margerum’s middle name and its English meaning is “Lives near the boar's den…” thusly, we have adorned the label with an image of the wild boar that is pervasive in our area’s vineyards.

A blend of La Encantada Chardonnay (12%), La Rinconada Chardonnay (12%), Donnachadh Chadonnay (12%,) La Encantada Pinot Blanc (32%), and La Encantada Pinot Gris (32%). 

Vineyard Region: Sta. Rita Hills – La Encantada Vineyard (76%), La Rinconada (12%), Donnachadh (12%)

Vintage Conditions: It was a warm, dry summer with varying heat spikes and we had veraison quite early. With no ground water near the surface the stressed vines produced intensely flavored grapes with low brix, which resulted in lower alcohol wines with concentrated fruit flavors. We want fruit just approaching ripeness with higher acid and a lower brix.
