BWC was founded in 2005 by Master Sommelier Paolo Barbieri. Prior to 2005, Paolo started making very small lots in his garage in Las Vegas. This eventually evolved into forming Barbieri Wine Company to set out to produce his own wine. The objective was to produce Rhone Varietals from top vineyards located in Santa Barbara County. The approach was simple: work with great growers and use minimalistic wine making techniques without heavy oak influence. Before and during the development of Barbieri Wine Company, Paolo worked in the restaurant business for over 30 years managing numerous world class wine lists from Europe and later in the United States exposing him to the best wines in the world, which ultimately shaped his approach for his own wines. During this time, Erin Kempe joined Paolo, and together they continued to fulfill their passion for wine making and developing hand-crafted boutique wines.With our international travel planner, Los Olivos attractions like Barbieri Wines can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Wife found this hidden gem. We had a fantastic tasting experience with Erin & Penny(black lab). Loved the tasting & cheese rooms! Couldn't resist joining the Kempe wine club. We belong to many in the area & these are among the best around! Can't wait for their next release! Thanks for the great experience!
Aaron was very professional and very knowledgeable about wines they have . Triuffle cheese with wine was the best thing. I have have to say. We did three different wine tastings but the wines here were the best. I can’t wait to bring my wife here. I know my wines and the quality of wines
