Vintage Notes

We love each vineyard in the Rudius portfolio for its uniqueness and exceptional quality, but Bedrock holds special meaning for the Rudius team. Like owners Morgan and Joel Peterson, we strongly believe that the history of California wine is deeply rooted in heritage varietals and classic field blends, planted by European immigrants centuries ago. And this is precisely what can be found at Bedrock Vineyard. Old World varietals such as Alicante Bouche, Black Muscat and Cinsaut thrive in the alluvial soils at the base of Moon Mountain, ripening early in Sonoma’s hot harvest days. In 2007 the Peterson family became the stewards of the land and vines, recognizing the potential of this rare historic planting. Preserving the vines and paying homage to the farmers that came before them, vintage after vintage they continued to farm the 22 varietals found in this block to consistently produce quality fruit. In the cellar, we strive to pay our respects to the land by making a wine that is purely driven by the character of the site — no new oak and purely native fermentations result in a mixed-blacks blend that always speaks to the vintage, the vines and the hands that have tended it.
