When we planted Barbera in the ground of our Upper King Valley vineyard in 1984, little did we know that the variety would become the foundation of Chrismont, and a first for King Valley. Today, we continue to develop our distinct style through meticulous grape growing and winemaking, spurred on by the Australian wine drinker’s love of Italian flavours.

Winery Tasting Notes
The colour is a rich purple with crimson edges.
The 2014 La ZONA Barbera exhibits fragrant aromas of blackberries, plums and spice.
As a mediumbodied wine, the La Zona Barbera has great intensity in the glass. The palate is full; spicy plumy, with blackberry and chocolate notes, nicely rounded out by toasty vanilla oak, balanced by mouth-watering acidity and fine tannins.
Drink now or age to 2019+.
The wine is ideally paired with tomato based pasta dishes, slow-cooked lamb shanks, braised veal or pizza.
