- Piemontese for "variation", Annette Hilberg and Michele Pasquero’s Vareij is a biodynamic blend of Brachetto and Barbera. The Brachetto, a highly aromatic variety usually used for sweet sparkling wine, is fermented completely dry before blending with their lip-smackingly crisp Barbera. Viva Vareij!
