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 opened our cellar for the first time on the 9th of June. We will be open on the second Saturday of each month for the rest of the year. We make wines with distinctive style, inspired by some of our favorite wines and wine making styles from around the world.
|Varietal||Description||Price||Wine Club Price|
|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
|Red Blend Mourvedre||Field blend from Great Bear Vineyards. A lighter red summer wine.|
|A bold and luscious 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon made with our grapes in collaboration with a winery in Napa.||$40||$34|
|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||$38|
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|
