Join Peterson Winery at this years Barbera Fesetival in Plymouth, CA! This outdoor wine festival will host more than 80 amazing wineries from all over California and showcase the growing popularity of Barbera! "Barbera is becoming more and more popular in California. We see more people excited about it, and asking about it, every day. Many California producers offer a varietal Barbera. Barbera is a great food wine yet quite enjoyable on its own. Still, Barbera remains fairly obscure. We want to bring Barbera to the attention of the general wine buying public."
