The first vintage of Le Barrettage was 2009, when Heidi decided to evolve her single-vineyard Barrett Syrah into a layered, complex Rhone-style blend that paid homage to the L’Hermitage region of the Northern Rhone, home to many wines she admires. Featuring Syrah from her own Calistoga vineyard as well as a bit of Syrah, Grenache, and Petite Sirah, she came up with the name Le Barrettage and immediately pictured a label inspired by the classic Rhone wines she loves so much. The mermaid was given a crown and surrounded by old-world filigree as a tribute to the labels of the Rhone, and Le Barrettage was born.
