Bedrock Vineyard is one of the most historically and qualitatively gilded plots of land in Sonoma Valley. Taking up 152 acres of the heart of Sonoma Valley, the vineyard occupies a large section of one of the best-growing climates for grapes on earth. Founded in 1854, Bedrock Vineyard has grown grapes for over 150 years and is currently owned and farmed by the Peterson Family (Bedrock Wine Co.). It is a privilege to work with such a rich piece of Californian history. Bedrock’s understanding of farming and preserving old vines has provided a blueprint for more recent restorations around the state.
Each year, we strive to showcase the vineyard as well as the particular growing season. Once the grapes come into the winery, I will sort and destem the fruit. The grapes begin with a cold soak anywhere from 4-7 days. Once the grapes start fermenting, we will do a combination of punchdowns and pumpovers.
After fermentation, we press and settle the wine before going to French oak barrels. We age in once used French Oak barrels. While the wine is aging, we will taste all of the barrels regularly and will rack barrel to barrel as needed. We bottle this wine after 22 months in barrel.
