    Winemaker Notes

    As an essential component providing acidity to the heady red wines of the Southern Rhone or a pleasantly bright base for classic Provencal rosé, Counoise rarely receives the attention reserved for its more familiar blending partners. Harvested at 22 Brix, the Eaglepoint Ranch Counoise is always the last varietal to come into the winery. Displaying medium-sized berries on large clusters, it's also one of the heaviest. The Eaglepoint Ranch version of Counoise is different from what's typically seen from what little plantings there are in the rest of the state. Producing a medium-bodied wine from fruit that is usually used for blending. 100% destemmed fruit with native fermentation. Fermented in 5-ton, open top wood troniques. Punched down twice per day. Aged 10 months in used French oak barrels.

    Blend: 100% Counoise

    Broc Cellars, Central Coast, California
    Image of winery
    Broc Cellars was nothing more than an idea not that long ago, about making wines that were "site specific". Where the wines true character came from using only sustainably, organically, or biodynamically grown grapes from areas that most would consider marginal climates. Believing that vineyards develop ‘true’ character and complexity when they have to struggle to survive.This can come from many different aspects: poor nutrient and water holding capacity, steep slopes, cool temperatures, or from old vines that are dry farmed. In the cellar we try to continue this practice using minimal intervention, in an effort to let the grapes speak for themselves.

    We are a 'low wattage' winery in the sense that we have very little modern equipment. Grapes are pitchforked whole-cluster into the fermenters, fermentation is allowed to happen spontaneously, all wines are basket pressed, with little/no sulphur used in our wines until bottling. True asphalt winemaking, in an urban winery.

    Central Coast

    The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

    Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

    While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

    Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal and Italy are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
