Blue Rock Vineyard
Region: Sonoma County, CA
Special Wine Club Selection!
A luminescent pale straw hue nearly makes you salivate on its own, only to be outdone by gorgeous aromas of lime, kiwi and Asian pear with subtle notes of chamomile and a touch of exotic floral perfume. This continues on the palate with honeydew and passionfruit joining the crisp citrusy flavors, all carried beautifully by wonderful acidity for a long and satisfying finish. While light and refreshing, it offers enough body and length to be a good sipper both poolside as well as at the table.

The estate winemaking traditions of Blue Rock are perhaps best summed up with the French term, terroir, which acknowledges the environmental factors that make the vineyard site unique including soil, weather, appellation, and to that effect, the human element as well.
Running an estate vineyard offers more control over the winemaking process, which yields handcrafted wines of distinction and soul that also give a sense of place. The name Blue Rock originates from the local soil studded with blue pebbles, rocks, and boulders of serpentine. The serpentine rock defines the unique flavor profile of the vineyard as it naturally yields a smaller quantity of grapes.
