Special Wine Club Selection!
Pinot Noir comes in many styles, all of which have special places in people’s hearts. We are proud to celebrate our unique California terroir and the wonderful fruit qualities that wine lovers have come to expect from our region. But we get really excited when that glorious red and black fruit is accompanied by a whole spice box of savory goodness, wrapped in a light-to-medium body with delicacy, intensity and flare. If this sounds like your kind of Pinot, our 2019 Baby Blue will deliver, delight and keep you dancing all night.

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.
