You can find well crafted Italian varietals with a California edge at La Folia in Murphys. Their Barbera is my favorite with a big blue smokey flavor that lasts.
But the unique find at La Folia that is quite unexpected is a white light crisp wine that is slightly frizzante. The bubbles are present when you pour your glass but they dissipate as you are drinking. This wine is also light in alcohol so don’t worry about driving home after a glass.
