Although the Bogle family has been farming since the mid-1800's, it was not until 1968 that the father and son team of Warren and Chris Bogle planted their first 20 acres of wine grapes in Clarksburg, California. In this small farming community nestled along the Sacramento River, the Bogle family's years of hard work have developed into an impressive grape growing operation, as well as a nationally acclaimed winery. Today Bogle Vineyards farms over 1,200 acres of wine grapes in the Delta region. While the winery was established ten years after the first grapes were planted, its success has grown tremendously along with the vineyards. The success of Bogle over the years is firmly rooted in one thing: the day-to-day involvement of the Bogle family in the hands-on effort to produce and promote quality wines. Patty Bogle became involved in the early years of the vineyards with her late husband Chris, when they planted fields together in the early 1970's. Patty took over operation of the winery in 1989 and has directed production to new and exciting heights. Patty's daughter Jody also contributes to the family business by being active in customer support, as well as running the wine club and handling all international sales. Patty's son Warren, named after the founder of Bogle Vineyards, is the sixth generation of the Bogle family to farm this fertile Delta region. Like his grandfather and father, Warren understands that in order to produce quality wines, you must first produce quality grapes. This tradition of respect for the land and the vines is crucial to the success of Bogle wines. The production of Bogle wine is influenced by this family tradition as well as the ever-changing trends in the wine industry. Since 1992, Bogle Winery has participated in the California Appellation Program. In this program, winemakers source fruit from some of the best vineyards in the state and blend them with Bogle's Estate Vineyards in Clarksburg, thus assuring that the wines benefit from many of the incredible grape growing regions of California. Each and every Bogle wine created is a unique and exciting blend with true varietal character and an approachable style. With their deep commitment to quality, the Bogle family wouldn't have it any other way. Read less

really basic wine, jammy, soft, lots of fruit that might come off to some as off-dry, medium bodied and rather boring. a little manufactured quality to the nose...

Rating 87 : Not as good as previous vintages but still good!!! Strong berry nose with complex aromas. Body more tart with a good balance and fruity tones.

Nose improves with decanting, with some berry and moderate oak. Blueberry predominates on the palate, with chewy structure, moderate acidity and a tiny touch of spice. Virtually no finish.

Heady, sexy and voluptuous, layering notes of raspberry liqueur, dark chocolate and sweet vanilla. 94pts

Bogle Vineyards Petite Sirah 2008 is lacking in character and is rather bland. There is much better out there even at this price. 82 pts

This wine is packed with flavor, from bright cherry, cranberry and raspberry, to spicy plum, currants and black pepper. Vivid and lively, with a sense of richness from the dense fruit, yet light enough to enjoy on its own. Itrsquo;s hard to imagine a wine with more flavor for the dollar.

Pizza? Lasagna? This is the perfect inexpensive wine. Itrsquo;s full-bodied and brawny, and totally dry, with big tannins and fresh, deep flavors of blackberries, coffee, cocoa and dried leather. Shows real character, and will develop for a few years.

First produced in 1978 by the Bogle family, this 2004 Petite Sirah is considered Boglersquo;s ldquo;heritagerdquo; varietal. On the nose, luscious boysenberry teases you along with touches of black pepper and herbs. Trademark inky and jammy tones fill the mouth with ripe fruit and berries. The voluptuous finish lingers with toasty oak and lush fruit. The firm tannins make this a wine that can develop for years to come, but you wonrsquo;t want to wait that long to enjoy it! Try this unique wine with rich meat dishes of lamb, pork or game and their hearty sauces.

This was a panel favorite for an affordable, value wine. Itrsquo;s simple and richly flavored with blackberry, cherry and chocolate notes, and has firm, dry tannins. The pretty fruit flavors and oriental spices last through the finish.

Ripe summer blackberries and plums overwhelm both the nose and palate of this wine. Its trademark inky, jammy qualities are a barrage of black fruit and spice, adding layer upon layer of complexity.

This is a fragrant, floral version of Petite, offering firm but smooth tannins and a core of ripe blueberry and boysenberry flavors that show violet, black licorice and spice details. Drink now through 2019.

Full-bodied on the entry, aromas of black plum jam and toasty oak set the stage for what is to come. Vibrant boysenberries and luscious of leather and vanilla seduce just enough. A final touch of acidity finishes the wine with a precisely balanced mouthfeel. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
