Barden Wines

Barden Wines

BARDEN focuses exclusively on the terroir of the Sta. Rita Hills sourcing fruit from top vineyards in the appellation, showcasing the region’s classic typicity for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah.  With its diverse, marine-based soils and refrigerated-sunlight climate, the Sta. Rita Hills provides a perfect place for Doug “Barden” Margerum to use his extensive food and wine experience to make limited amounts of world-class, cuisine-friendly and age-worthy wines.  The BARDEN name’s English meaning is “Lives near the boar’s den…” Thus the image of a wild boar, which is pervasive in our area’s vineyards.
