Bedrock wine company was started in 2007 by Morgan Twain-Petersen, the son of Joel Petersen who had established Ravenswood. Working initially out of a garage with outdoor fermenters and subsequently borrowing space in a friend’s winery Morgan set about making wines to preserve and rehabilitate old vineyards in California. Although many of these oldest vineyards were planted to Zinfandel, they were also planted to other grape varieties by immigrants in the early twentieth century – such as Syrah, Bouchet, Alicante, Grenache, Semillon, Pinot Gris and Riesling. The sources of this fruit can range from established locations such as Oakville in Napa to less familiar sites in Mendocino or Lodi, Amador or Contra Costa as well as distant corners of Sonoma.

The wines produced are not the same each year. There is a hope at Bedrock always to find something new, provided the resulting wine reflects its origins under the California sun and is simply delicious. The focus is always on ideal ripeness of fruit while making wines of freshness with strong aromatic profiles.

Connected to this is the view that a simple approach in the cellar lends itself to creating this type of wine.  No commercial yeasts are used, the reds see some whole cluster, malolactic fermentation is unforced, oak is only used I fit is the very best and absolutely and nothing unnecessary is added.

Morgan was joined in 2013 by Chris Cottrell.

In 2017 Morgan became a Master of Wine.

Vinous: 95 Points

The 2019 Cuvée Karatas is one of the most remarkable California whites I have ever tasted. It is a blend of 55% old-vine Sémillon from Monte Rosso and 45% Sauvignon Blanc from Uboldi and Judge. Exquisitely deep layered and expressive the 2019 explodes onto the palate with stunning depth. The purity of the fruit is just remarkable. Don?t miss it.


Wine Spectator: 92 Points

There's a rich honeyed overtone to the pear peach and lemon meringue flavors leaning into a note of litsea oil lanolin and beeswax but finishing with a mouthwatering fresh acidity that puts the flavors into focus. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now. 150 cases made.
