2012 Estate Barbera
Wilridge winemaker Paul Beveridge loves working with Italian grape varietals. Barbera is from the Piedmont region of northwest Italy where Nebbiolo and Dolcetto are also grown. The Piemontese sometimes say that they drink Barbera while they are waiting for the Nebbiolo to mature in the cellar. Barbera has wonderful fruity notes and bright acidity, making it a great wine for pastas with red sauces or traditional pizza.

2012 Estate Zweigelt
The Zweigelt varietal was developed in 1922 by Fritz Zweigelt by crossing the St. Laurent and Blaufränkisch varietals. It is the most planted grape in Austria. Wilridge Vineyard received it on accident, as the original plantings were believed to be Pinot Gris. This chance meeting proved a match made in terroir heaven. The low nutrient high elevation vineyard also has the cool nights that Zweigelt favors. The wine’s body is light but fruit and spice notes are bold.
This is one of the classic grape varieties used in many red Bordeaux wines. However, it is Argentina, not France, that has created Malbec's sudden rise in popularity. And if Argentina can grow great Malbec, Washington State should as well, since the two regions are mirrors of each other in different hemispheres. The wine growing areas of Argentina and Washington are the same distance from the equator; so both get the same long days of sunshine during the growing season. Further, Argentina is protected by the Andes and Washington is protected by the Cascades. Therefore, it's no wonder why both regions produce exceptional Malbec.
