We will produce only small quantities of luxurious red wines that express their sense of place. Blue Rock, therefore, will always make wine from grapes grown exclusively on the Estate. We believe that small is beautiful. In our experience, the finest, most individually expressive wines come from small places. We believe that place is paramount, "...a memorable wine is as much a map as a taste. A place where man and plant and planet meet. A kind of liquid geography..." Blue Rock will always come from the blue rocks, pebbles and boulders that make this hillside property so unique and special. Read less

Baby Blue is a serious yet fun wine that strikes all the right notes. It is 100% hillside Estate fruit that is sustainably farmed and full of dark black fruits (blackberry, black cherry) and with a long finish.
