Bacio Divino was founded by Claus Janzen in 1993. His wine epiphany occurred while working winter seasons in Switzerland’s Berner Oberland. While in Switzerland, he fell in love with Burgundy. The wine was a Chorey-les-Beaune and it had a profound effect on the rest of his life. His palate and passion led him to France where he spent a year and a half visiting the top properties in the Rhone, Provence and Burgundy. In the late 1980s, Claus visited Napa Valley and met Charlie Wagner, founder of Caymus Vineyards. He became friends with Charlie’s son Chuck Wagner and soon found himself working harvest. Claus spent 12 years at Caymus, developing the most enviable international marketing operation in the Napa Valley. But Claus had viniculture ambitions of his own. In 1993, with the acquisition of a few tons of Sangiovese from an Oakville hillside he launched Bacio Divino. The wine was a roaring success from day one. Bacio Divino Italian for divine kiss is built on a base of Cabernet Sauvignon supported by Sangiovese, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Merlot, depending on the year. Bacio Divino owns three, 8 acre hillside vineyards located in Dutch Henry Canyon near Howell Mountain. Well-known consultants Nils and Kirk Venge advise Claus on winemaking and viticulture decisions.

Speaking of Janzen’s terrific value, the 2012 Pazzo rocks. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Sangiovese, it’s a very sexy, fleshy, succulent style of wine that consumers undoubtedly adore. Lots of red and black fruits, meaty, peppery spices and a hint of Provencal herbs all catch the taster’s attention in this lusty, heady, ripe, rare outstanding effort. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
