PERFECT BBQ WINE FOR 4th of JULY!!!
There isn’t a reason to over complicate this decision. Fourth of July is only 9 days away and if you are like us you’re probably saying…”We’ve got plenty of time to stock up on wine, beer and booze.” But, why not get one thing checked off your list so you aren’t scrambling to find that great bottle of wine you aren’t ashamed to share with your estranged Cousin Eddie, or the Johnson’s from down the street! It’s the 4th, and when the grills get fired up, the sun starts to set, its “WINE TIME” and we have just the bottle.
Owner/winemaker Scot Bilbro has been making wine at Marietta for over 10 years. He’s a specialist in the big reds especially; Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah.

“Marietta’s flagship NV Old Vine Red Lot Number 67 is a gorgeous wine to drink now and over the next few years, while the plummy red fruit and floral notes retain their freshness. Bright red cherry, plum, rose petal, mint and sweet pipe tobacco give this fresh, vinous red much of its inviting personality.”
