Barterra is an urban winery with a tasting room in downtown Half Moon Bay. We offer a range of fine wines from California’s top vineyards, with a focus on working with small farmers and producers. Visiting Barterra is like taking a tour through California’s finest AVAs. We are constantly searching for the finest wines available and have a “hands on” approach, visiting the vineyards and meeting with our winemakers on a regular basis.
My Grandfather, Angelo Minoletti, like thousands of immigrants, came to America to make a better life for his family. He settled in San Francisco’s North Beach and made wine for the family with my father, Attilio Minoletti. The making of wine was their simple pleasure, to enjoy with family.

Barterra Winery was founded in 2005, by Bart and Mary Colucci at the age of 71. Bart has a nose (and palate) for exceptional wines, and he personally curated Barterra’s selection of unique, premium wines.
In January of 2019, Bart and Mary decided it was time to retire – and turned the winery over to the Minoletti Family who continue in the Italian inspired tradition.
