Greetings!

Why is it that on these longest days of the year it still seems like there just isn't enough time to get everything done?  Summer is supposed to be relaxing!  Here's hoping you are able to enjoy a beach, a bike ride, or even just a board game...special time with family.  At the very least, indulge in a glass of wine and unwind this weekend!  Enjoy summer!
  
Cheers,

     The Bogle Family & Staff 

 

 

GROWING, GROWING...
  

Grapes in JulyWith a burst of summer weather the last few weeks, the grapevines are growing like...well, vines!  After a somewhat tumultuous spring and early summer that saw rain, hail and thunderstorms, the vineyards are now enjoying these steady days of warm temperatures.  Cooled by the Delta breezes in the evenings, tiny grape clusters are gaining size and getting ready for veraison in just a few weeks.

Though about three weeks behind schedule, veraison is when the grape clusters begin to soften and the red wine grapes start to gain their color.  From there, it is all downhill to harvest time!  Vineyard manager Warren Bogle says the grapes look a little light in quantity this year, which always increases quality.  This means we can look forward to fantastic vintages when the 2011 wines are released!

PHANTOM APPEARS IN FL!

If you love the Phantom, you know it can be hard to find.  Tom and Karyn Weber, wine club members from Pleasant Hill, CA, found the elusive vino on a recent trip to the Sunshine State! 
  
"We thought you would enjoy a couple of pictures from our recent trip to Destin, Florida.  We saw your wines on the menu at O'Quigley's Sports Bar.  One shot is of the bartender with a bottle of Pinot Noir.  The other shot is off a full page of their bar menu showing Phantom."

 

Thanks so much for sharing guys!  Safe travels!

NEW  RELEASES:  Summer sippers are here!

                     
2010 MOSCATO, Clarksburg

At long last, the widely popular Bogle Moscato has returned!  This saucy and succulent white wine boasts hugely floral notes, very typical of freshly pressed muscat canelli grapes.  Honeysuckle blossoms lead way to juicy green pears and crispy red apples, and a soft, silky texture that fills the mouth.  Warm and inviting, this sweet white wine finishes with local clover honey on the finish, both in essence and in texture.

 

2010 PETITE SIRAH ROS, Clarksburg

Electric in the bottle, this fuchsia-hued libation bursts with summer melon and strawberries dripping with juice.  Tart notes of summer herbs and floral tones compliment the fruit mid-palate, while some spicy pink peppercorns keep the finish brisk.  Clean and light, this Petite Sirah Rosť is the perfect accompaniment to summer celebrating!

 

Available:  Both wines are available in our tasting room this summer for a limited time.  To order, email us at info@boglewinery.com to see if we can ship to your location.

 A  BOGLE  FAMILY  FAVORITE...
 GRILLED SALMON

Our dad, Chris Bogle, loved to cook...and some of his recipes remain our favorites here at the winery.  This easy salmon dish will become a summer staple for you too!  Serves 4.
 
Ingredients:
4 1" thick salmon steaks
4 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
1 red onion, sliced horizontally 1/4" thick
1 large heirloom tomato, sliced 1/4" thick
4-8 jarred peperoncinis, with 1 tbsp juice reserved
Salt & pepper
    
Cooking instructions:  
  • Prepare your charcoal or gas grill to medium heat.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the mayo, mustard, garlic and juice from the peperoncinis. 
  • Generously salt and pepper the steaks.  Place a dollop of the mayo mixture on top of each steak and spread over surface.  On top of the mayonnaise, place one slice of tomato, topped with one or two of the peperoncinis.  On top place a slice of onion to complete the stack. 
  • Place on the oiled grill and ten with foil.  DO NOT turn the fish over, but cook on one side until desired degree of doneness.   
  • Remove from heat and serve immediately with your favorite grilled summer veggies and fresh bread. 

Salmon is a wine lover's perfect partner!   Try the 2009 Chardonany which has enough body to stand up to the rich flavors of the dish.  Other great pairs would be our 2009 Merlot or 2009 Old Vine Zinfandel  Enjoy!
