Laura Barrett
About the Winemaker:
Laura Barrett brings her passion for wine, a life-long love of science and attention to detail to winemaking at Clif Family. Inspired by her first harvest in New Zealand, Laura received a Masters in Viticulture and Enology from the University of California, Davis and trained under some of Napa Valley’s most celebrated winemakers. With a vineyard-driven approach and a focus on organic farming, Laura is enthusiastic about working to create balanced and elegant wines.
Vineyard:
Bartolomei Brothers Vineyard and Trio-Marguerite Vineyards
About the Vineyard:
Clif Family Winery Rosé of Grenache comes primarily from the Bartolomei Brothers Vineyard near McClure Creek in Mendocino County, just southeast of Ukiah. The family has lived on this piece of land since the early 1900’s and brothers, Vincent and Rory, are the 4th generation farming the vines. In 2019, Clif Family Winery also sourced from a nearby ranch called Trio-Marguerite Vineyards

Food Pairing Suggestions:
While certainly enjoyable on its own, this rosé can pair easily with a wide variety of foods. Focus on lighter dishes, appetizers, fish and shellfish. Young cheeses like goat, Feta or Swiss are beautiful pairings. In particular, serve with salads, charcuterie, light vegetarian dishes and fruit.
About the Winery
Clif Family Winery Most of us are familiar with Clif Bars. It may even be common knowledge that Gary Erickson and Kit Crawford started the business out of their garage. What is impressive to learn, however, is the wide-ranging lifestyle brand Clif Family has grown into, including an expanded line of healthy food products, Clif Family Winery, Clif Family Tasting Room, the Bruschetteria Food Truck, and Clif Family Napa Valley artisan food products.
