We would love to see you at our vineyard to share our wines.
In 2018, we will be tasting:
We will be doing bottle and barrel tastings of our 2016 & 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon wines. We specialize in Cabernet Sauvignon and have several distinctive styles from “The Graduate” to the “Grand Reserve”. The 2016 wines are aging beautifully and already tasting wonderful. The 2017 wines are coming along nicely. This is your opportunity to learn about the winemaking process, taste the wines and experience them develop and mature to full complexity.
Roussanne & Chardonnay
Two aromatic, crisp wines, aged on steel to give a minerality to their finish
Specially selected other varietals
Selection will vary at each event
Our wine tasting room will open every second Saturday of the month during 2018 and for special events, so please check our website regularly or sign up for the newsletter to receive emails detailing upcoming dates and times.
We can usually organize a special wine tasting for groups of 6 or more. You have the option to pair the wines with local artisan cheeses and salami, rustic breads, and our own olives and olive oil — please send an email to make an appointment.
Vin d’amour. Love wine? Treat someone you love to a wine tasting in the beautiful grounds of Great Bear Vineyards, and make your own romantic start to Valentine’s week. In celebration of the occasion, we will be launching our 2018 Rosé of Tempranillo.
Start your Valentine’s evening in the romantic grounds of Great Bear Vineyards. Enjoy a delicious wine tasting, or glass of our delightful pale pink Rosé, reminiscent of Provence, fresh and fruity, exuding charm and elegance.
Bud break is a time of eager anticipation on the vineyard as we wait for the buds on the vines to burst open and come into leaf. This signifies the end of winter and the promise of another great harvest. Join us for the release of our much anticipated 2018 Roussanne and join our celebration.
Join us for the launch of our 2018 Chardonnay. Our hugely popular Chablis-style 2017 Chardonnay sold out within months of its launch last year, so you won’t want to miss the launch of this new vintage. Sushi samplers pair nicely with our Chardonnay and can be ordered in advance (not available for order on the day – so order early to avoid disappointment).
Customers are invited to bring their own picnic to enjoy with a wine tasting in the gardens of Great Bear Vineyards – as informal or as formal as you chose to make it. We will be launching our 2018 Zinfandel Nouveau – a very different presentation of the Zinfandel grape – picked early in the season, this is a light wine, with strawberry and red fruit flavors.
