Welcoming Everyone

There is nothing better than making the world a more inclusive place for everyone. That’s why Barefoot has dedicated ourselves to building up and supporting members of the LGBTQ community.

An Ally to the
Community Since 1988

Over thirty years ago, we set out to make wine for everyone, extending our values of inclusivity and positivity to wine lovers everywhere — no matter who they are or who they love. Hashtag #onestride to show your support to the LGBTQ community.
