My mother in law Babe Garibaldi resting on a ladder by the wine press. The Vineyard: This is the oldest block of vines on the Frick Estate. Vines age to over 100 years. The block is so tiny that it produces  only 1 barrel of wine a year. The vineyard is named Garibaldi to honor my wonderful mother-in-law Babe Garibaldi Gannon. Garibaldi the wine is an example of a rare field blend containing many varieties, red and white, mixed together in the same vineyard. My “museum” plot. Grapes are harvested and fermented together.

The Wine: Truly small lot and special. This lot 6 was a ripe one with complex dark fruit character both fresh and dried fruit profile. A big wine that is big bodied and full of flavor. Drink now to 2027. Only 50 cases made.

 Serve with: Babe’s all-time favorite foods to cook and eat: grilled cheese  sandwich, zucchini frittata, spaghetti & red sauce, leg of lamb plugged with garlic minestrone soup, tuna melt, abalone and baked potato.
