In The Vineyard
The Blue Rock 100 acre Estate is located in Sonoma in the Alexander Valley next door to Silver Oak Winery. The hillside vineyard, consisting of 46 acres, is planted to the five Bordeaux varietals…Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Malbec In 1993, an additional 3 acres of Syrah were planted on an extreme hillside.
The name Blue Rock comes from our soils, which are studded with blue pebbles, rocks, and boulders of serpentine. The serpentine rock defines the unique flavor profile of the vineyard, as serpentine naturally reduces the yields to very low levels. Bordeaux varietals are adaptable to many soil and climate conditions but develop great character and longevity in relatively few locations. Blue Rock is blessed with cool mornings and warm days that make it one of those special places where Bordeaux varietals develop clarity and finesse.
