How we work

This is a collaborative process where through the sharing of ideas and joint discussions with our farmers, production team, distributors, and retailers we arrive at the optimal array of offerings to please and satisfy the demanding palates of our customers.

We have worked hard to build an experienced and multifaceted team at Grapes & Barley to help us reach our goals.


Our commitment to old-world, non-interventionist winemaking goes hand in hand with our commitment to the environment. All our producers value traditional winemaking techniques and sustainable growing and winemaking practices. We’re committed to your health as well. Natural wine has fewer chemical additives, contains antioxidants and resveratrol, and by being less processed, maintains a higher nutritional value.
