FROM WEBSITE ABOUT Bedrock is an itsy-bitsy winery making wine in a converted chicken coop. Fruit from only the most excellent vineyard sites is hand pitch-forked into the destemmer, fermented in open top redwood and stainless vats using only native yeasts, and are manually basket pressed by winemaker Morgan Twain-Peterson into the sexiest oak from the coldest French forests.
The winery’s objectives are: To channel the fruit of ancient vines into powerful, elegant, and distinctly Californian wines. To spread the gospel of Syrah in California by sourcing fruit from great terroirs throughout the North Coast. To proclaim the greatness of Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon by sparing no expense on wines of uniqueness and personality. To reclaim rose’ from the excesses of saignee and focus on precision, delicacy, aromatics, and food friendliness. To make fascinating and quixotic white wines from unique sites and interesting varietals. To make California Pinot Noir that ages as well as ’74 Swan. To dream big but keep production low!
