Bedrock Winery was first and foremost founded as a mission-driven operation dedicated to preserving and rehabilitating old vineyards around California. These vineyards were planted by California’s viticultural pioneers in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and have survived two world wars, Prohibition and a constantly changing marketplace. In the eyes of Bedrock, if something has been growing for over 100 years it not only deserves the respect of us humans, but it probably makes some darn good wine too.
Oftentimes these vineyards are planted with Zinfandel, but plantings of Mataro (Mourvedre), Carignan, Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet, Grenache, Sémillon, Gewurztraminer, Trousseau Gris and Riesling and dozens of others have appeared as well. While some might see the diversity of these vineyards as a challenge, given the prevalence of single variety wines in the California marketplace, Bedrock has taken it upon itself to champion these old vine field blends. The Ode to Lulu Rose meets that challenge head on, and makes one of the most compelling American Roses we at Le Du’s have ever tried. Made primarily from centenarian Mourvedre and Grenache vines, this Rose has an explosive nose that is dark and mineral driven. This is great wine in every sense of the word, it just happens to be pink and delicious.
