Our wine prices reflect taxes and fees inflicted on us by the PLCB, which are substantially more damaging than any neighboring state's policies—it's our intention to price everything as affordably as we can within this system. PLCB sucks.

Brian's Bright Idea

Barry Family Cellars

36

Founded in 2011, Barry Family Cellars released its first wines in 2014. Founded by father and son Ken and Ian Barry, the winery specializes in small batch vinifera wines, reflective of place and vintage. We work with local growers to showcase individual vineyards and we are committed to minimal manipulation.

-From the producer

Winemaker’s note: “Back after an absence of many years! My personal favorite label. Doodle by my dad Ken featuring my brother Brian, who came up with the initial concept for this wine sometime around 2016.”

Grapes: Cayuga White and Leon Millot + Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, and Blaufrankisch pomace

Vineyard: different sustainable vineyards in the FLX area

Making of: A co-fermented blend of Cayuga and Leon Millot juice was soaked on the skins of Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, and Blaufrankisch. Fermented with only indigenous yeasts and force-carbonated. Unfined, course filtered with a small SO2 addition (20 ppm) at bottling.

Personality: A fun and lively bubbly bev with equal parts fruity and savory notes. Ideal for summer cookouts and holiday gatherings.
