My first order from Bedrock Wine Co., and their first shipment. I can’t wait to try these. I am especially hopeful about the Rebecca Pinot Noir.

The story behind these goes back to when we first moved to Sonoma county. I can’t remember where I first encountered the Ravenswood wines, but I fell in love with them and had to visit the winery. I think that was my first experience buying a case of wine.

These wines were crafted by the son of the owner at Ravenswood, Morgan Twain-Peterson, who started making wine at the age of five. I feel that it’s not right to keep linking Bedrock and Ravenswood, as I’m sure Bedrock will stand on its own. I’ll let you know after I taste.

One other little tidbit possibly of interest to no one other than myself: After I placed the order for these, which was at the earliest possible moment after learning of their release, I got a lovely handwritten note from Morgan letting me know mine had been the very first order. How nice!

    So, have you tasted the Bedrock wines yet? I would be interested in your tasting comments when you do.
    Enjoy and regards,

    Hi Bill,

    I did — I should post about it! They are delightful. I also went to pick up a shipment at the winery, where I met Morgan and was treated to a barrel tasting of some wines in progress — there was a syrah that knocked my socks off, even in the barrel; I think it was released this fall — as well as some finished wines that I hadn’t tried. Bedrock has a rose that is just lovely (and I don’t usually care for rose). I definitely also recommend the Rebecca’s pinot and the Bedrock Heirlooms (there are two, both delicious).
