In 1965 California winemaker Davis Bynum first created Barefoot Bynum Burgundy in his garage. The unconventional name referred to – what else? – the free-spirited method of crushing grapes barefoot.
Fast forward to 1986. Things really kicked off when visionary entrepreneurs Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey took the helm, renaming it Barefoot Cellars and creating the footprint label there known for today. Barefoot Wine’s casual name and quirky persona quickly made an impression on our fans.
