There’s a new winery in town!


And what a treat it is!

Featured at Party Town this past week, Barrett Renee Winery brought five of their wines for us to sample:

  1. 2014 Viognier
  2. 2014 Grenache Rose
  3. 2014 OTR Red Blend – 60% Grenache and 40 % Syrah
  4. 2013 Petite Sirah
  5. Sweet Zinfandel

We were very pleased with what we tasted, especially the reds.

Barrett Renee is a new comer to the area and run by husband and wife team of Carl Barrett and Lauren Renee Best.  Their delicious wines feature elegant artsy photography of Cincinnati landmarks on the labels.

I really enjoyed their OTR Red Blend and was blown away by their Petite Sirah. Petite Sirah is usually not my wine, but theirs is heavily oaked and just fantastic in my book.  This is an example of why it’s important to try everything.  You never know what treasures you will find.

Barrett Renee also offers a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Merlot, and a Zinfandel.  I cannot wait to taste those varieties.

While they do not yet have a tasting room, they are active and featured at a number of events and Party Town carries their full line.  This winery is an up and coming star.  I look forward to some really good things from them in the future.  Be sure to check out their website and Facebook page.
