Recommending Belharra wines makes me very happy. They fit like a glove the wines I most like to promote, and I think what you most like to read from me. Belharra is the perfect DDWA winery because...

1) Anne Fogerty and Camille Gaio, co-owners/winemakers, are skilled, passionate craftswomen with a keen understanding of what makes world-class wine. Their day jobs (Anne at Rivers Marie, Camille at Covert Estate) are testament to their high standards of quality and character.

2 & 3) Rare and well-priced. Belharra wines are super-small production at 100-150 cases made per wine. They're under-priced for the quality. Especially the Syrah.

4) The vineyard! The Belharra Syrah and Rosé of Syrah are made from "Las Madres Vineyard" fruit. Las Madres, 2 miles southeast of Sonoma off Highway 12, is, to my taste, the best Syrah vineyard in California. The Syrahs from Las Madres, whether from Belharra or other wineries that buy from here, are wonderfully smoky/spicy/fruity/rich with a backbone of life-giving acidity and fine tannins. In wine-lovers speak, "Las Madres" Syrahs are f-in' awesome, and Belharra makes one of the best.

Please consider buying from Anne and Camille of Belharra. The price is the price, so to speak. Your "deal" comes in the free delivery or $20 shipping. My notes: 


Belharra Rosé of Syrah "Las Madres" Carneros - Sonoma 2020 ($25)  This “intentional Rosé” made from 100% Syrah from “Las Madres” smells of raspberries, yellow plums, cracked peppercorns and pink rose petals. Textural and a little creamy in the mouth, it reminds me of the more substantial Provence Rosés in this way. I taste red apple, apricots, blood orange and tarragon along with perky acidity and just a little creaminess that coats the roof of my mouth. I’d love to drink this with a summertime BLT, full of smoky thick-cut bacon, crispy lettuce and garden-ripe tomatoes. Watch video below. Read more
***2019 Belharra Rosé, $18 at Belharra Wines. Recommended! 

Belharra Syrah, Carneros - Sonoma 2017 ($40) boasts a big nose of smoky, peppery, licoricey blackberries and violets. You get berries galore in the mouth, yet Syrah’s savory spice is the star: bittersweet chocolate, smoked strip steak, leather handbag and anise. This cohesive, intense, “very Syrah” Syrah is a delicious, rich red wine. French oak aged…20% new. 14.5% alcohol. Read more
