ESCAPE TO BEDARRA

 

WELCOME TO BEDARRA VINEYARDS

Our picturesque hillside vineyard is located at the southernmost tip of Alexander Valley. This cooler region of the valley provides for a more moderate growing season allowing the grapes to develop gradually on the vine. The eight acre parcel was completely replanted in 2014 consisting of >90% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with the balance of the vineyard growing Bordeaux varietals Malbec and Merlot.

ESTATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON

2018 is our first vintage to be sourced from the estate.

However, you would never know it from the depth of flavors exhibited in the wine. Only 140 cases were made, with each bottle hand dipped in gold wax to ensure its integrity through the full aging process.

95 points & Double Gold
North Coast Wine Challenge 2021

 

Aromas of dark cherry and plum lead way to baking spice, dark chocolate and violets. The palate is lush with deep blackberry flavors and juicy red fruits. The finish is long

with silky tannins that are complimented by soft acidity.

Retail price is $65/bottle, please contact us to purchase this wine.

INSPIRATION

Jeff and Brigid’s passion for wine began when they moved to the Bay area in 2001.  Very quickly, their basic curiosity and recreational trips to wine country became much more.  Two years later, in front of family and friends, they exchanged wedding vows at one of their favorite wineries in Alexander Valley.

 

Over breakfast the day after their wedding, surrounded by vineyards, they decided that “some day” they would love to have a place in wine country and maybe even own a small vineyard.  For their honeymoon, the couple traveled to Australia and spent several glorious days on the island of Bedarra – a tiny exclusive island just off the Great Barrier Reef.  The experience further inspired them to find their little slice of heaven in wine country. 

 

In 2005, Bedarra Vineyards was initially born with the purchase of a home and vineyard in the southern edge of Dry Creek Valley just outside of the town of Healdsburg in Sonoma County. The initial offering included a 100% Chardonnay, a unique white blend called “Beachfront,” a red blend called “Bonfire” and a 100% Primitivo, all sourced from their estate vineyard and others in the Dry Creek appellation.

In 2013, the second chapter of Bedarra was launched with the purchase of an 8 acre hillside vineyard in the southern edge of Alexander Valley. The vineyard was completely replanted in 2014 with Cabernet Sauvignon and small blocks of Malbec and Merlot.  The 2018 vintage marks the inaugural release of Cabernet Sauvignon from Bedarra Vineyards.
