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 by Generals William “Tecumseh” Sherman and General “Fightin’ Joe” Hooker, Bedrock Vineyard has grown grapes for over 150 years. Following the first epidemic of phylloxera in the mid-1880’s, the vineyard was replanted in 1888 by Senator George Hearst—a mining magnet, an early father of California, and the father of publisher William Randolph Hearst. It is from those 120 year old vines that the Bedrock Heirloom Wine is crafted.
The 2014 The Bedrock Heritage Wine is one of the biggest, richest wines in this range. Deep, pungent and wonderfully expressive, the 2014 exudes concentration and pure pedigree. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2014 is very young and undeveloped, but its potential can't be underestimated. This is a fabulous wine in the making.
