Bargetto Winery has been in continuous operation since 1918. During prohibition, the proprieters farmed and sold fruit. When prohibition ended, the winery began producing wine for the wholesale markets. The winery denyd through the 1940's, 1950's, and 1960's. In the 1970's, the winery completed a huge modernization project. These days, Bargetto is committed to growing grapes that do well in the Santa Cruz mountains. More recently, the winemakers have been experimenting with northern Italian grape varietals such as Dolcetto.
