crushed gravel, the 2019 Mencia is a truly spectacular expression of creative novelty in the world of wine. Pairs well with tapas, charcuterie, mushroom risotto, and grilled game meats
way to a vibrant and lifted palate in this concentrated expression of Syrah. Powerful and made to age, this wine reveals dark fruits, ripe tapenade and cooling aromatics indicative of its moderate climate in the Mosier Hills.
Tempranillo dominant blend is lifted with notes of black tea and marasca cherry. Subtle qualities of cedar and petrichor accompany present and perceptive tannins
that are built for age but taste delicious now.
Reminder: We only ship cider within California at this time.
This certified Biodynamic® perry is made from pears harvested from our friends at Mt. Hood Organic Farms an Organic and Certified Biodynamic® orchard just outside Hood River, Oregon. We used Starkrimson and Red Bartlett pears. The pears are fermented using indigenous, natural yeast and allowed to go through full malo-lactic fermentation with indigenous malo-lactic bacteria. Toward the end of fermentation the perry is blended together and bottled with some of the pear’s natural sugar still remaining. The perry continues to ferment in bottle resulting in a light carbonation known as the “Ancestral method”. This perry is crafted using a minute amount of sulfur to preserve its integrity. It is fermented using natural yeasts, natural malo-lactic bacteria, no added acid, no forced carbonation and absolutely no pasteurization; this perry is a living beverage that will continue to evolve in bottle.
This is a very special wine. It’s like mandarin, pineapple guava and sea salt in your glass. Enjoy!"
Blend of Tocai and Friulano.
VARIETAL: 100% Chenin Blanc
VINEYARD: Shell Creek Vineyard
LOCATION: Paso Robles (East Side)
TOTAL PRODUCTION: 800 cases
WINEMAKER’S NOTES: We use the Petillant Natural method for making our Love Sparkling. For 2020, we left the juice on the skins overnight and pressed into stainless steel tank. We fermented the wine until it reached 15 grams of sugar, then chilled the wine down to stop fermentation and bottled the juice. As it warmed up, fermentation occurred again in bottle. Wine spent 7 months in bottle and was disgorged by hand with no dosage. This is our first year bottling Love Sparkling Chenin Blanc. We wanted to have a sparkling join the Love label. This wine is made to be enjoyed until the last drop. Have fun and drink up.
VITICULTURAL AREA: Shell Creek Vineyard has sandy top soil and calcareous fossilized sea shells underneath. It was planted in 1972, and owned by the same family (Sinton Family), since the late 1800’s. The vineyard is SIP certified – it is sustainably farmed with no spraying of round-up.
At Broc Cellars, all of our wines are made using spontaneous fermentation, a process that means we only use native yeasts and bacteria that exist on the grapes in order to make wine. We don’t add anything – this includes nutrients, yeast, bacteria, enzymes, tannins or other popular fermentation agents. Sulphur is a naturally occurring element in all wine, the amount found can vary. We add little to no S02, depending on the wine and style.
WINEMAKER’S NOTES: The Love Red grapes were harvested in the second week of September to preserve the grape’s natural acidity. The Carignan and Syrah were both whole cluster fermented and destemmed in concrete and stainless tanks. The Valdiguié went under carbonic fermentation in stainless steel. Aged for 8 months in concrete and neutral French oak barrels.
VITICULTURAL AREA: The grapes come from 70 year old vines in Solano County’s Green Valley. This area is tucked between Napa and Suisun Valley. Parenti and Wirth Ranch each provide Syrah and Valdiguié for this blend. The Carignan comes solely from Parenti Vineyard. The grapes of each vineyard grow in clay loam soils and come from mostly dry-farmed and head-pruned vines.
BLEND: 77% Carignan, 15% Valdiguié, 8% Syrah,
ALC: 12.5% alcohol
We foot stomped all the fruit and left it on the skins for 12 hours. Then it was pressed into stainless steel tank where all three varieties fermented together for just over 14 days. The result is a 100% finished wine. This means it fermented until it went dry using only native yeasts and went through spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Each variety brings a unique quality to the wine - spice comes from the Zinfandel, acidity from the Valdiguié and texture from the Trousseau.
97% Valdiguié | 2% Zinfandel | 1 % Trousseau
The grapes were harvested in August and early September to help preserve their natural acidity. All varieties were fermented separately, then aged in neutral French oak barrels with no S02. Malolactic fermentation was allowed to happen naturally. All varieties in this blend play a key role to delivering its unique balance. Picpoul grapes are from cuttings from Rorick Vineyard vines that we grafted onto Marsanne vines at Love Ranch a few years ago. The Picpoul adds brightness to the wine, while Albariño (new for us this release) comes from North Canyon Vineyard and adds beautiful aromatics. Marsanne and Roussanne add lovely texture, while Grenache Blanc provides the balance. Love White is meant to be a fresher style of a Rhône-inspired white that is structured, delicious and infinitely drinkable.
If I was a 21 year old little leaguer, this would be my jam. Literally. Plum jam, big league chew, concord grape all hit the senses. A nice, medium bodied, medium tannin, yet chewy with some black cherry earth tones. There's some spice in there, but I can't put my finger on it just yet. You tell me.

"Merlot and Trousseau are at the core of this blend. Merlot gives the wine its strong color, and the Trousseau leans it out. Pinot Blanc added a little bitterness to the back and the Es Okay White blend gives it a huge aromatic lift. Don't let the numbers fool you, it's not as sweet as it may seem, just perfectly crushable!"

Tasting Notes: A structured and bright wine with notes of cherry, dark berries and tangerines
The criterion for selecting a vineyard is quite simple: the site has to be compelling. Attributes that create a special vineyard are uniqueness in climate, varietal, soil, vine age, and vineyard practice. Perhaps most important though, the vineyard must show quality, balance, and soul.
This wine is wonderful. With such amazing natural acidity, a deeper and more brooding wine can still find balance. Amarena black cherries, earth, balsamic, violets, quinine, graphite and macerated plums are aromatic highlights. A full and lush front and mid palate are balanced by the firm and fresh structure.
The wine shows notes honey, wildflowers, wet stones, salty air, jasmine, and orange blossoms. The mouth feel is lean with a touch of oiliness through the mid, and then racy and driving through the finish.
A blend of Arneis, Muscat Canelli, Favorita, and more.
This comes from a single vineyard in Dry Creek Valley with an aroma set of lychee, tropical fruits, pink grapefruit pith, just there honey, and fresh cut grass. The palate is light in weight with up front melon that gives way to tropical fruits and a pleasant grassiness. D&M Tasting Notes

This is a delicious Petaluma Gap expression of California Chardonnay. Accessible to traditional Chardonnay fans while also appealing to those who appreciate a more natural style, it combines weight and body with a zippier acidity and balance. Fermented 80% in Stainless, 20% in oak (with 10% new) and 15% malolactic fermentation gives mineral undertones to a crowd pleasing domestic Chardonnay!
A generous nose of tropical fruit, honeydew melon and flower. Round, medium mouthfeel highlighted by pear and saline minerality.
