About Barboursville Vineyards Nebbiolo Reserve
Wine experts still come to Barboursville in the conviction that Nebbiolo should not be grown outside of Piemonte, only to express disbelief that this Nebbiolo is grown and crafted in Virginia (in the region of Piedmont no less!). Critics at the 2012 Virginia Wine Summit selected this Nebbiolo against famous alternatives estate grown in Piemonte, Italy, and the Barboursville vintages continue to garner the highest praise in international competitions.
