Still thriving after all these years: Bargetto Winery turns 90

On Talk of the Bay, third-generation winemaker John Bargetto joins host Suki Wessling to talk about his family winery’s history and present. Started the day Prohibition was enacted, the winery struggled to find its purpose in a country that first made wine illegal, then thought it should always be drunk sweet and from a jug. Sustained by the family through thick and thin, Bargetto Winery is now known as one of the anchors of the industry in this county. John Bargetto talks about why Italians drink wine, what it’s like to grow up in a family business, and his love of the vineyard and the product. Pop a cork (or twist a screw cap) on your favorite vintage, and join us in a jaunt through local winemaking history and culture.
