We got our start as a "garage wine" back in the Sixties but really stepped up what Barefoot was about in 1986 when Michael Houlihan and partner Bonnie Harvey decided to relaunch the brand. The two of them, along with the first Barefooter, Randy Arnold, believed in making and selling wine that was both delicious and affordable and that could be enjoyed by everyone from first-time wine-consumers to hard-core aficionados. We believe that we can both promote our brand and satisfy our desire to make the world a better place by partnering with various non-profits and pouring at various fund-raising events. Over the years, Barefoot has been a part of thousands of non-profit events and our popularity has grown along with our support of these ground-breaking organizations. We took another big step in 2006 by becoming a sponsor of the Association of Volleyball Professions (AVP) Beach Volleyball supporting a grassroots sport that originated in our state-California. We’ve also teamed up with the grass roots non-profit, the Surfrider Foundation, to create the Barefoot Beach Rescue Project, designed to clean up beaches and ensure they are "Barefoot friendly." These two initiatives help us spread a sense of fun in the sun while furthering the Barefoot philosophy of giving back. Over the years, our wines have garnered numerous accolades and professional awards, but more importantly to us, we have a growing circle of loyal fans who love to enjoy our wine and who have joined us in the spirit of giving back to our communities and to our world. For us, and we hope for all of you, that’s an achievement well worth toasting with a glass of Barefoot wine. Read less

I have had this wine on numerous occasions. Most recently, it was served at a casual dinner hosted by friends. When I saw the bottle, I thought, "Barefoot! How cheap!" However, I found it much better than the more expensive chardonnay that had brought to the dinner. It was light, crisp, fruity and refreshing. A very drinkable wine. I learned a lesson on "wine snobbery."

In 2 words...not good. Pay a couple buck more and get a bottle of Estancia or Ecco Domani.

Aroma like grape juice, flavor profile the same. The texture is nice, but there's no complexity and it feels more like drunk-grape-drink than wine. But still drinkable! "Bare"-ly.

Smells very earthy and of mixed bouquet, overly acidic, taste like sour oranges, a bit bitter, not my fave.

Scented lotioned feet, sweet bubblegum. Tastes like grandma's perfume. Good for a night with the girls.

Good price for an everyday white wine. The citron, pineapple, apple and honeysuckle flavors are a little sweet, but cleansed with brisk acidity.

Made in the easy, crisp and affordable style that has made this variety so popular, this Pinot Grigio has fruity flavors of peaches, apricots, apples, pineapples, tangerines and vanilla, with a spicy, honeyed finish.

Barefoot Pinot Grigio has tart green apple flavors with a white peach undertone. Floral blossoms and citrus aromas do the tango. Light-bodied with a bright finish.

Aromas of dried jasmine, bergamot cookie, and peach sorbet are attractive and follow through on a silky entry to a dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body with very good balance and acidity and a persistent, chalk, lemongrass, and white nut accented fade. A tasty crowd pleaser.

We are generally not big fans of Italian Pinot Grigio, which is often watery and charmless. U.S. wines called Pinot Grigio can have the same problem, though we have better luck with U.S. wines called Pinot Gris, which is the same grape. We had a terrific Pinot Gris from J Vineyards & Winery at Disney World recently (2007 Russian River Valley; $60 at Wolfgang Puck Café at Downtown Disney) that had hints of earthy honeydew melon, with some weight. It had a certain clarity of fruit and some richness and it was really pleasing and satisfying. In a tasting of American Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris last year, Barefoot Cellars was one of our favorites. We tried it again for this tasting in magnum size and, once again, thought it was a real winner, especially for the price. It’s fleshy and peachy, with some weight and true white-grape tastes. We’d pair it with more-flavorful, more-complex summer dishes, like salads with all sorts of toppings, and pastas.

Floral and perfumey on the nose with concentrated flavors of apple, pear, and spice; light to medium bodied with a balanced, fruity finish. Green salad.
