White Rock Vineyards produces world class Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, using only the fruit from our own vineyard. Our 36-acre family run estate is situated in its own small valley in the southern foothills of the Stag's Leap Range on the historic site of White Rock Vineyards which dates back to 1870. The Land and the Vines The estate is a small valley consisting of 22 acres of terraced hillsides and 14 acres of benchland. The soil of our hillsides is white volcanic ash, distinct from the typical Napa Valley alluvial soil. The combination of mature vines, volcanic soil and varied exposures create complex and age-worthy wines. The hills are planted predominantly to Cabernet Sauvignon, with blocks of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. These varietals combine to produce Cabernet Sauvignon blends in the Bordeaux tradition. The cooler benchland is planted to Chardonnay using a variety of Burgundian and old California clones. These vines produce small berries at 1.5-3 Read more »

  • Here in the United States we are on a first-name basis with our wine grapes. The majority of casual wine drinkers understand what “Merlot”, “Moscato”, and “Cabernet” mean. Nowadays “Pinot” and even “Riesling” are familiar pals too. This is largely because the United States and other New World regions label their wines by varietal rather than geo... Read More

  • We talked a lot about sparkling wine last week but there is a lot more to cover. The biggest sparkling wine day of the year, New Year's Eve, is right around the corner. Opening a bottle of sparkling wine can be a a dangerous proposition. There's a lot of pressure under that cork! But if you like living on the edge, there's always sabrage. When t... Read More

  • I’m always being asked to recommend an unusual wine, “one that isn’t Cabernet Sauvignon or Chardonnay”. With media communications improving by the minute it’s getting more and more difficult but at a recent corporate event I saw a few puzzled expressions when I suggested Blaufränkisch. It’s one of my favourite Austrian reds and certainly falls i... Read More

  • I run the wine courses at one of the UK’s leading culinary academies and recently let slip to the chefs that I’d matched a herb crusted trout recipe with Soave in a recent magazine article. Their pan faces and deafening silence said it all! To be honest, I wasn’t surprised as this dry Italian doesn’t have a very good image on English wine shelve... Read More

  • I have a theory. Easy to pronounce and easy to remember names help drive wine sales. Hence, Prosecco, the Italian sparkler has taken our shelves by storm, Picpoul de Pinet, the easy drinking white from the south of France has seen sales sky rocket, and Pinot Grigio has simply rewritten the script. And now, I have an exclusive for Snoothers. The ... Read More
