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

The first nose is musty, a bit mouldy that then becomes almost aromaless, but with a hint of mowed grass. On the palate you get Honeydew melon and fresh citrus fruits. It is tangy and a little acidic, somewhat delicate and very easy to drink. Smooth, refreshing, and a nice lasting finish that makes you keep sipping and enjoying. This is not a very complex wine at all, which is absolutely fine, given it’s low price. It is still a wonderful choice for a Sauvignon Blanc. I had a takeout pizza from Local 149 with smoked salmon, boursin and spinach that was incredible and partnered perfectly with the Bogle Sauvignon Blanc.

    Refreshingly pure and complex, with ripe, vivid wild berry, raspberry and blackberry fruit that's firm at points and supple at others. Full-bodied, with wonderful balance and harmony, ending with a dillish oak edge. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

    The red raspberry jam flavors of this wine are fading into caramel and autumn leaves. Fully mature and ready for roast beef.

    A bit soft and dull, but it's dry and silky like a Pinot Noir should be, with modest cherry and cola flavors.

    Aromas of black tea, black cherry, herb and spice are medium-bodied and complex, if on a modest scale. Drink now through 2014.

    The first impression recalls a sun-dappled forest clearing, scattered with sweet wild strawberries and rustic mint. These hints of pine, bright berry and fresh herbs follow on the well-balanced palate, surrounded by soft suggestions of tea leaves and violets. Toasty vanilla winds itself throughout, wrapping around the finish: long, silky and elegant. - Winery
