Briar Hill untangles the choices in wine buying

Briar Hill untangles the choices in wine buying

Briar Hill wines pay homage to the briar-covered hillsides of chaparral that frame the vineyards of Santa Barbara County. The resulting wines are flavorful, complex, and terroir driven capturing the subtle zest of salty, sage-scented winds that sweep across the county. Sourced from two of the most famous vineyards in the Santa Maria Valley, these wines capture the true essence of this growing region.

To expand your wine tasting prowess and try something new, consider these varietals:

Briar Hill Pinot Noir

This big Pinot carries notes of ripe plum, black cherry, and bittersweet chocolate that enliven the senses, finishing with silky tannins to complete this balanced and layered wine. Enjoy it with a grilled salmon or a mushroom pizza.

Briar Hill Chardonnay

This Santa Barbara Chardonnay displays fresh, bright flavors of apple, white peach, melon, and guava layered over subtle oak notes to create a well-rounded and moreish wine. Treat yourself to pairing it with shrimp scampi or crab cakes or a honeyed milky cheese like Wensleydale.

As Coloradans continue to entertain themselves more in-home, you can find Briar Hill, and many other excellent wines, at larger, local, family-owned liquor stores, like Wyatt’s, that offer you a superior selection from around the globe with a knowledgeable staff who will help you find the perfect bottle every time.
