Bedrock Vineyard Heritage
The Bedrock Vineyard is American vineyard royalty, considered by many the most historically and qualitatively gilded plot of land in the Sonoma Valley.
The Bedrock Vineyard is American vineyard royalty, considered by many the most historically and qualitatively gilded plot of land in the Sonoma Valley. Planted to vitis vinifera originally in 1854 and financed by William Tecumseh Sherman (a banker before he was a general), the vineyard has seen American winemaking grow up around it. Over that time it has been planted and replanted, with over 30 different types of grape interspersed throughout the vineyard, much of it zinfandel and alicante bouschet, but also tempranillo, mondeuse, carignane and mourvedre amongst others. It is from this 120 year-old field blend that Heritage is made. We are honored to be able to work with such amazing fruit.
Fresh strawberries and raspberries along with a potpourri of rose petals and exotic flowers dominate the aromas. Electric red & black fruit that is unique to this wine and its smorgasbord of grape varieties that it is composed from.
Alicante Bouschet, Carignane, Mourvedre, Tempranillo, Zinfandel

High above sea level, 12 miles east of the Pacific Ocean and 150 miles north of San Francisco, Alder Springs offers cool climate growing conditions and fractured sand stone soils that are perfect for nurturing truly world class vineyards. While the average California grower expects yields of 20 pounds of fruit per vine, Alder Spring produce just 2 ½. Just enough for a single, spectacular bottle! The mouth-feel is light and billowy with a streak of concentrated apple laced fruit; honeyed fig and mineral laden length that reveals a concentration & intensity that bode well for the future.
Wilde Farm rosé is a fresh and energetic wine made from carbonic free run juice of Dolcetto from Fox Hill Vineyard. Rather than a saignée method, this is a very intentional rosé.
