Barry Family Cellars Jewels & Binoculars White
Finger Lakes, New York, United States
Barry Family Cellars was founded in 2011 by Ken and Ian Barry in Burdett, New York, near Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes Region. Ian worked at wineries in the Hudson Valley, Oregon and Washington, and makes the Barry Family wines with techniques he personally enjoys, eschewing intervention in favor of more minimalist techniques.
The Pet Gnat wines got their inspiration from Ian’s son Declan. He overheard his Dad discussing making a pet-nat with some winemaking friends, and thought they were getting a new pet gnat. They joked about how they’d have to have a leash for the new pet. Declan’s drawing, spruced up by Ian’s father Ken, a lifelong artist, is the art work featured on the label.
