Barry Herbst & The Varietal Show Visit The Locanda Villa

Earlier this year The Varietal Show took Barry Herbst and his amazing Bottle Barn palate, along to taste some Locanda Estate Wines with winemaker Brian Graham. We WINE GEEKED OUT on their Cabernet Sauvignon from Beckstoffer & Chardonnay from Los Carneros. Join in for this tasting, along with an intimate discussion of the wines, and intriguing analysis of Brian’s winemaking techniques.
