    After stints in Australia as a winemaker with respected estates such as O’Leary Walker and Sticks he landed a job with Treasury helping to grade vineyards across their huge portfolio of sites, a role David emphasized help him truly grasp the value of site selection and vine age. In 2007 he flew to Piedmonte and worked his first vintage with Cerrato, one of the regions iconic Nebbiolo producers and simply fell in love with the region and the wines they make. Fast forward to today and he now lives full time in Barbaresco, making his own wines under the Fletcher label to critic acclaim.

    When David decided to make a Barbera, they knew it had to be from Asti, the prized home of the Barbera grape. This Barbera comes from three vineyards, two very close to each other but they vary hugely in age, about 20 years. The other vineyard is from an east facing site as apposed to the other two that face south, and is therefore a much cooler site. This wine is dense in colour and fruit like all good Barbera, and is highlighted by an amazing core acidity. It is the under their organic label and is marked and closed under a bees wax seal.

    30% whole bunch in the open fermenters for the Barbera. The wine is pressed off to old barriques where it stays for 8 months on lees. Bottling is done without fining or filtration and with very minimal sulphites added.
