2021 Ochota Barrels Where's the Pope?10450
2021 was the first vintage without Taras after his tragic passing. Amber, with the assistance of Taras' dad, Yari, and Louis Schofield, continues the work of Ochota Barrels. We are incredibly grateful to receive a small amount of these truly special wines.
