Raise a Toast to Charlie Barra

Charlie Barra


To our valued Girasole Vineyards customers and supporters:

On June 29th, Charlie passed away peacefully at home at the age of 92. For those of you who had the pleasure of meeting Charlie while visiting the vineyards, or when working the market with him on sales calls/wine dinners, you can attest to the fact that he made a lasting impression on everyone he met. Whether evangelizing the benefits of organic farming with his "I've been farming organically for 50 years, I just didn't know it the first 30!" one-liners, or telling his infamous tale of making more money farming grapes his senior year in high school than his principal, Charlie was the consummate storyteller.

In the spirit of storytelling, we invite you to continue to share Charlie's history as you enjoy and feature Girasole Vineyards wines. While his passing leaves a big hole in all of our hearts, we know that his legacy will continue on in all that we do. Below please see links to Charlie's obituary and a few other tributes:

Thank you for all you do to support our Girasole Vineyards wines. It is truly appreciated.


The MPW Family & Girasole Family (Martha, Shelley & Shawn)
