Bargetto Winery produces a fine red wine blended with three Italian varietals: Dolcetto, Nebbiolo and Refosco. La Vita (“the life” in Italian) is a unique blend of Dolcetto, Nebbiolo and Refosco, all Santa Cruz Mountains-Regan vineyards estate grown northern Italian red varietals. This wine is a complex wine of elegance and structure.

The wines were fermented in small wood bins, hand-punched during fermentation and pressed with a small basket press. Depending on the vintage, the wines are aged separately in oak barrels for two to two and a half years. Towards the end of cellar aging, the wines are blended to create a unique wine consisting of the three Italian Varietals.
