Bear Flag is a winery founded by artsy, young winemakers Beth Culter and Hillary Forbess in Modesto, California. The winery is named for the Bear Flag Revolt that gave California its independence from Mexico in 1846. Their portfolio specializes in red and white blends only, often employing less obvious grapes such as Tempranillo, Touriga, Alicante Bouchet, Gewürztraminer, Chenin Blanc and Muscat as well as Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc. Not a Cab, Merlot or Chard in sight! The labels feature colorful illustrations by artist Eduardo Bertone.

  • Bear Flag Wine White Blend Stanislaus County Bright White Blend 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Unpleasant, leafy tart aroma. Sugary and sparkling, this could be a nice summer wine - it would be for people who like this kind of thing. Very thin, some lemonade and grapefruit flavor, and a little green in the color. Funny label with lots of little cartoons. Read More
