Since 1995 Chameleon Cellars has produced small lots of wine from select sustainably farmed vineyards in Californias premiere winegrowing regions. Originally formed as a partnership between producer Owsley Brown III and Winemaker Jeff Popick, Chameloen is now wholly owned by the Magnanimus Wine Group as a respected addition to their green portfolio of wines. Beginning in 2005, Owsley and Jeff began working with the consultation of Magnanimus winemaking team Steve Ryan and Paolo Caciorgna to refine the Chameleon wines and further blend old and new world winemaking style. These wines are crafted in a refreshing and fruity style that makes them great food wines. The aim is to retain the natural acidity and flavors for which Cal-Ital and Rhone style varietals are well known. Read less

From Eric and Cindi Olof's beautiful Lake County site, this wine is brimming with fresh berries, spice and perfect acidity - all of which make it an absolutely perfect match with virtually any Italian fare as well as just about everything from the grill - from chicken to ribs to a juicy hamburger. This wine was recently included in the TOP 50 WINES OF THE YEAR by The wine Report Magazine, which also awarded it 90 points and described it as: "well-balanced... explosive red fruit flavors burst in the mouth..." The 2002 Barbera is ready to drink now, but will certainly be worthy of cellaring for 3-5 years.
