“It was intended to be a small thing, an interesting project,” the late Patty Bogle said in 2009 about the winery’s beginnings. “We just grew as demand grew.”
Still family owned and operated by Chris and Patty’s children, Bogle has carved out a niche with customers, releasing clean, bright, fruit-forward wines that remain very reasonably priced. Wines with integrity, that display true voluptuous California character, are still family-owned, and by no means going to break the bank are more and more a rarity these days, and Bogle shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, two of Bogle’s wines just received incredible scores from the Wine Enthusiast!
The relatively new Bogle Essential red blend was rewarded a stunning 91 Point review, and their 2012 Pinot Noir received stellar 90 Points! You’d be hard pressed to find another California Pinot Noir for under $10 with a 90 Point rating!
Bogle is by no means an under-the-radar, cult winery, but it seems that both consumers and the wine press are starting to realize just how ridiculously good these wines are for the money. Check them out below for more information on each wine.
