Bargetto has been producing wine in the Santa Cruz Mountains since 1933 and the third generation is now in charge. Multiple varietals are produced from the winery's 36-acre Regen Estate Vineyards which were planted in 1992-1999 and are located in the Green Valley area of Corralitos. The Pinot Noir is planted to Dijon 115, Pommard and Martini clones. Both a regular and a reserve Pinot Noir are produced by winemaker Michael Sones who has spent his entire career in the Santa Cruz Mountains (Bonny Doon, David Bruce).
The winery has a tasting room in Soquel and on Cannery Row in Monterey. Wines can also be obtained online.
