We are excited to be distributing Bedrock Wine Co.
Bedrock Wine Co. was started in 2007 by Morgan Twain-Peterson. Working out of a small converted chicken coop in a friend’s backyard, Morgan focused on making personality-filled wines wrought from a small array of thoughtfully farmed vineyards. Over time the chicken coop and its outdoor fermenters and tiny basket press gave way to production at another friend’s winery and eventually to the “elegant” tin-sided warehouse that is now called home. In addition, after six years of working alone the winery welcomed Chris Cottrell as a partner-in-crime along with a small, dedicated staff of highly decent human beings.

Bedrock Old Vine Zinfandel
From vines averaging 80 years old. “Roughly 86% Zinfandel, 5% Petite Sirah, 5% Carignan…and all the other crazy and lovely field-blended varieties found in our old vineyards. Drink 2019-2030”
Bedrock “Evangelho Vineyard Heritage”
2017 Contra Costa County
Own-rooted in 40’ deep banks of beach sand, Evangelho was planed in the 1890s and is now owned by Bedrock. A field-blend of Zinfandel, Carignane, Mourvedre, and others, the wines are fresh, bright, and have some of the lowest pHs of any of the Bedrock wines.
Bedrock “The Bedrock Heritage”
2017 Sonoma Valley
Bedrock Vineyard is one of the most historically and qualitatively gilded plots of land on Earth. Founded in 1854 by Gen. William “Tecumseh” Sherman and Gen. “Fightin’ Joe” Hooker, Bedrock Vineyard has grown grapes for over 150 years. A field blend of 27 varieties, this vintage is “roughly 55% Zinfandel, 15% Carignan, 10% Mataro…Syrah, Alicante, Trousseau Noir, Mission…you get the point. Drink 2019-2030+.” – MTP MW
