On Sale Now
The emergence of “New California” has been one of the most exciting developments in the wine world this century. The name refers to a growing number of Golden State producers making more balanced, structured wines from a state where bigger has too often been used as shorthand for better.  The results have been thrilling, especially for people who generally prefer European wines.
We’re proud to offer one of the movement’s vanguard producers: Bedrock Wino Co. and its creator and winemaker, Morgan Twain-Peterson. His wines stand as flagships for the current California wine industry. Although he was born into the Californian wine industry (his father Joel Peterson founded Ravenswood) he comes by his passion and vision are very much his own.  He’s blazing his own, very opinionated and talented trail, focusing on the preservation of California’s heritage vineyards and their wines.
The focus is ancient vines of Zinfandel, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Tempranillo, Alicante Bouschet, Valdigué, Peloursin, and Petit Bouschet, to name a few. These vines, in Twain-Peterson’s view, represent so much more than California’s history. They represent a wine that is uniquely Californian, a style not to be found or replicated anywhere else in the world. He repeats again and again that wines are made in the vineyard—and he’s got a remarkable collection of them. Each site is co-fermented to give Bedrock their signature style.
This is could well be California’s future. The resulting wines aren’t shy, but the surprising aromatics and spice notes are delicate and only get better with time. They’ve got the fruit and depth that you would expect from California, but they’re tight, structured and will reward patience. Just don’t wait to buy while our sale is on…

“The 2019 Gewürztraminer Alta Vista Vineyard Old Vine is another compelling wine in this range. Readers will find a dry Gewürztraminer that emphasizes a whole range of savory and floral notes. Even so, the 2019 exudes richness and the layers open with time in the glass, bringing out the wine’s creaminess.”
Bedrock Wine Co. Evangelho Vineyard Heritage Red, Contra Costa County 750ml Displayed Price: $44.50, that’s $42.28 at 5% off and $40.05 at 10% off, 13 bottles in stock now

“From Zinfandel grown in the pure sand soils of this incredible site, the 2021 Evangelho Vineyard Heritage is lifted and pure with raspberry liqueur, fresh flowers, and brushy earth. Medium-bodied, with a highly refined structure, it reveals a floral perfume of herbes de Provence and rose petals that lasts long after the wine has dissipated. With fine tannins and a gorgeous, sandy mineral texture, it’s a beautiful wine to drink over the next 10 or more years.”
Antonio Galloni-Vinous 94 points “The 2021 Evangelho Heritage Wine is dark, sensual and wonderfully expressive. Blue fruit, spice, lavender and leather all meld together in this beautifully layered Zinfandel-based field blend. The 2021 possesses unreal complexity and depth, with much of its intensity coming from punishingly low yields. The 2021 is simply fabulous.”
Bedrock Wine Co. Hudson Vineyard T-Block Syrah, Carneros 2021 750ml Displayed Price: $59, that’s $56.05 at 5% off and $53.10 at 10% off, 1 bottle in stock now
Antonio Galloni-Vinous 94 points
“The 2021 Syrah Hudson Vineyard T Block is a dense, powerful wine. Black cherry, black olive, spice, leather, lavender, and chocolate race across the palate brightened with a good dose of whole cluster suaveness. The 2021 is a full bodied, heavy wine that deftly balances rich, layered fruit and vibrant energy.”
Bedrock Wine Co. Monte Rosso Zinfandel, Sonoma Valley 2021 750ml Displayed Price: $69, that’s $65.55 at 5% off and $62.10 at 10% off, 6 bottles in stock now
Antonio Galloni-Vinous 95 points
“The 2021 Zinfandel Monte Rosso, a blend from two blocks, is an elegant, understated wine that shows the more floral, savory side of this historic site. A wine more of nuance than power, the Monte Rosso Zinfandel is all pedigree. Sweet red-toned fruit, chalk, dried herbs, mint and blood orange add to a feeling of brightness. This is very nicely done, and yet I feel like there is more to this wine than it is showing today.”
Jeb Dunnuck 95 points “Pouring a richer purple with a ruby tinge, the 2021 Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard has classic benchmark aromas of raspberry liqueur, fresh peach, and five spice. This medium to full-bodied red is fully dry, with more serious structure and ripe tannins, and what feels like more mountain fruit character, but it retains freshness throughout. Drink 2025-2040.”
Bedrock Wine Co. Pato Vineyard Heritage, Contra Costa County 2021 750ml Displayed Price: $49, that’s $46.55 at 5% off and $44.10 at 10% off, 11 bottles in stock now
Antonio Galloni-Vinous 94 points
“The 2021 Pato Vineyard Heritage Wine is dark and brooding from the outset. Black cherry, gravel, incense, licorice, dried herbs, menthol, tobacco and cured meats are all amplified. In 2021, the Pato is mostly Zinfandel, with a big chunk of Petite Sirah, and it is the Petite that very much drives the overall feel.”
Skurnik Wines “From the southern edge of Oakley planted on sand, Pato Heritage wine is a lovely reflection of the vintage in this increasingly suburbanized area. Here, the sandy soils buffs away the variety’s rougher edges and makes for a deeply colored but elegant element of the wine filled with dark fruit and black pepper. This is combined with the vibrant fruit from Zinfandel to make a wine that is rich but svelte.”
Bedrock Wine Co. ‘The Bedrock Heritage’, Sonoma Valley 2021 750ml Displayed Price: $51.90, that’s $49.31 at 5% off and $46.71 at 10% off, 36+ bottles in stock now
Jeb Dunnuck 96 points
“A deep but transparent red, the 2021 The Bedrock Heritage is about 50% Zinfandel and offers aromas of fresh pencil shavings, black cherry, roasted herbs, and fresh flowers. Full-bodied, it has fine sweet tannins and note of ripe berries, mocha, and turned soil. Drink over the next 10 years”
