16. February – Clarksburg, California. – It all started when we tried our luck on agricultural fields in the California Delta in 1968. Today Bogle Family Vineyards pays tribute to its heritage with a new and unique version of TWENTY ACRES by Bogle.
Over 50 years ago, our grandfather, Warren W… Bogle, was looking for a new plant to grow. When his potatoes failed, a friend suggested grapes. The vineyards have blossomed and we are proud to continue the tradition of growing grapes to this day, says Jody Bogle.
Chenin Blanc and Little Sirah are planted on 20 acres at Bogle Home Ranch in Clarksburg. As the family became aware of the potential of the land, the vineyards were expanded, as was Bogle’s desire to produce high quality artisan wines.
The TWENTY ACRES logo was inspired by a photo of Chris Bogle teaching his son Warren W. Bogle to drive a tractor when he was seven years old.
As a multi-generational farming family, we are taught the value of hard work and respect for the land from the first day we get to get behind the wheel of that tractor, says Warren Bogle. We are proud to honor our agricultural heritage by including this photo of our father and me on the label.
Jody, Ryan and Warren are now the sixth generation of farmers and the third generation of grape growers to run the family business, but they want to make sure the vineyards will be around for at least another 50 years.
We are committed to growing grapes and running the vineyard with future generations in mind, says Ryan Bogle. At TWENTY ACRES by Bogle, 100% of the grapes used in winemaking are certified as sustainable by the California Rules for Sustainable Viticulture program.
Upon the first harvest of this wine, the Bogle family will donate a portion of the profits to the Restaurant Employees Community Foundation. A donation of one dollar per case sold will be made to support restaurant workers and their families affected by COVID-19.
TWO ACROSS by BOGLE Highlights:
- Sustainability: 100% of the fruit is certified sustainable, with a certified green seal on every bottle.
- A reference to Legacy: Each wine has a 10-15% share of Bogle’s Heritage grape varieties, the first 20 acres of which were planted in 1968. Petite Sirah is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Chenin Blanc with Chardonnay.
- Instructions on the spot : The winemaker’s tasting grid on each back label allows restaurateurs to understand the wine at a glance.
- Authenticity: The TWENTY ACRES logo is inspired by a real photo of Chris Bogle teaching his son Warren W. Bogle how to drive a tractor.
Based in Clarksburg, California, Bogle Family Vineyards is run by the sixth generation of the Bogle family who live and work in the Sacramento Delta region. Bogle was named the 2019 American Wine of the Year and received the 2018 Green Leader Medal for its sustainability efforts in the winery and vineyard.
