We found the Barterra winery, located in Half Moon Bay, to be a delightful place. A husband and wife team run this winery. The staff is friendly and they know their stuff when it comes to wine.
Barterra offers premium wines from the finest vineyards in Napa Valley, Sonoma, Carneros, Lodi, Amador, Alexander Valley, Mendocino, Lodi, Paso Robles, Russian River Valley and Madera. Wine is sold directly to the public.
Their quaint tasting room is located on the main street and the pours are generous. Their standard wine tasting allows you to sample three wines, but the owner let me try an additional port (and it was excellent!). We enjoyed tasty white wines and their Ruby Cabernet and chocolatey dessert wine were very good.
The art gallery they own is a great place to have a glass of wine, or buy a bottle and spend some time lounging in their lovely courtyard. A visit to Barterra winery will make for a very relaxing and delightful afternoon.
The tasting room is open from Thursday to Monday from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. -
