The Winemaker…

PAOLO BARBIERI OF BARBIERI/KEMPE WINES

Barbieri Wine Company was founded in 2005 by Master Sommelier Paolo Barbieri. Originally from Rome, Paolo left Italy at age 22, and after working in the restaurant industry, later transitioned to sommelier – where he spent over thirty years managing numerous world class wine lists, became a Master Sommelier, and was exposed to the best wines in the world.

Paolo’s exposure to the world’s wine inspired him to start making small (experimental) lots from Santa Barbara County in his garage in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2003. The small wine press used in his initial batches can still be found in his tasting room today.  Paolo always loved the central coast for its wines, and soon began crafting them in Buellton, CA, while commuting back to Las Vegas. In 2014, Paolo and Erin decided “roll the dice” and go “all in” to pursue wine making full-time, and left Las Vegas to open their tasting room in Los Olivos. Today, Barbieri & Kempe wines have expanded to offer unique white and rose’ options as well as different varietals and blends.

Paolo launched the Barbieri label in 2005.  He wanted his label to focus on Rhone Varietals, so he began producing small lots of Syrah from Colson Canyon Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley near Los Padres Nation Forest. In the following years, Paolo added two new Syrah’s from Reeves Ranch and Three Creek Vineyard, known today as Crown Point near the town of Los Olivos. Over the next 10 years, Paolo and his wife Erin began expanding the brand by adding new Rhone varietals and red blends.
