BARDEN is Doug Margerum’s dream to make the ultimate expression of grapes grown in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. Our access to the top vineyards along with the philosophy and knowledge gained over thirty years in the wine business allows us to make world-class wines. The wines produced are Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, a Vin Gris of Pinot Noir, a white blend called Fonte, with more varietals to come.
BARDEN’s English meaning is “Lives near the boar’s den” … thusly we have adorned the label with an image of the wild boar that is pervasive in the Sta. Rita Hills.
