If you are new to wine and want to try a few different varietals without committing too much of your paycheck, I recommend patronizing the bottlings of Barefoot Cellars. Not only are they consistently inexpensive and good, but trying varietals from the same vintner can help one compare and discern different flavors and characteristics in grape varieties.
Logical incentives aside, I live on the coast, so I particularly like the advice printed on my Barefoot Chardonnay bottle: “Get barefoot and have a good time.” Thanks! I think I will.
The Barefoot Chardonnay is the perfect beach-picnic beverage as the crisp, mild apple and smooth vanilla undertones of this quaff really hit the spot. I had a few sips all on its own before giving it a little company with my picnic snacks (big fan of Brie and crackers). This Chardonnay is tasty and has just enough layers to make it interesting while retaining an easygoing, sip-inducing quality.
Bottom line? Try it. And, while you’re at it, try taking it up on its advice, too!
