Half a century ago, young Chris Bilbro hung around his Aunt Marietta’s table, learning about simple good cooking, hard work, and honesty. Leaving a desultory career in hospital administration years later, Chris founded Marietta Cellars in 1978, in a splendid cow barn in Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley. His notion (inspired by his no-nonsense aunt) was to make real wine the unfussy way the pioneers did: from a mess of grapes, and un-vintaged. Now son Scot has taken the helm, creating magical wines that evoke old school methods. Christo is a potent, chewy Rhône-styled red featuring Syrah with a little Grenache, Viognier and Petite Sirah from 2011, 2011, 2013. Meaty, peppery, black-fruited and profoundly rich, it’s also fresh and utterly drinkable with a racy quality that provides a welcome contrast to lush blueberry fruit, and ensures a happy marriage of dinners like Maui ribs, smoked brisket, or succulent pulled pork. Marietta wines are highly distinct, and, in Scot Bilbro’s words, ‘beautiful liquid expressions of family and place’.
