Great Bear is a new vineyard and winery passionate about producing the highest quality grapes and small lots of superb wines for drinking with family & friends. We are opening our cellar for the first time on June 9. We make wines with distinctive style, inspired by some of our favorite wines and wine making styles from around the world. We will be launching our 2017 Chardonnay and tasting a range of our wines:
|Varietal||Description||Price||Wine Club Price|
|Roussanne||An aromatic white with floral and citrus notes. Available for purchase in June 2019||Available
|Chardonnay||Grapes sourced from the Caneros region of Napa Valley. Made without secondary fermentation and aged in neutral French oak barrels – a style inspired by Chablis||$25||$22|
|Zinfandel||A light summer red, best served chilled. The grapes were picked young, but left on the skins to give a bright red color – much more fun than your average rosé||Available
|Malbec||An early taste of our 2017 Malbec. Made in a traditional style with dark cherry and red fruit flavors. This wine will be aged in oak barrels for another 12 months||Available
|Cabernet Sauvignon||An early taste of our 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon. See how the fruit and structure is already starting to develop in the young wine that will continue to add complexity and a smoothness as it continues to age in French oak||Available
|This wine will be perfect for drinking at Thanksgiving 2018. It has been aged for 21 months on French oak. We have created the classic Northern California Cabernet Sauvignon, a big red wine with dark fruit flavors enhanced by caramel and vanilla notes from the barrels||$45||$36|
At our vineyard and farm, we also produce fruit, olives, olive oil and lavender. Our Black Bicycle Farm brand olive oil can be bought at the Davis co-op or directly from us during our vineyard open days.
|Olive Oil||Medium-robust extra virgin olive oil. A blend of our Tuscan and Californian olives. Delightful green oil with peppery notes, superb for dipping and drizzling on bread and salads||$15|
|Lavender||Lavender field surrounds our winery. Fresh cut bunches are available||$15|
