The Chalk Report- La Caccia

Suppose you had founded a successful and respected Napa Valley winery 30 years ago on Spring Mountain. Would you then decide to go in with friends on a Tuscany estate with the intent to create a Super Tuscan wine? Crossing oceans, legal systems, languages, and winemaking ethos’ in the process. That is exactly what Hal and Fiona Barnett of Barnett Vineyards did when they partnered with old friend and Dallas private equity investor Dean Macfarlan and his wife Tawney on La Caccia di San Giovanni, their addition to the pantheon of Super Tuscans in the world market.
