We're rollin' into summer now!  School is out, the barbecue is hot and the grapes are growing!  Rumor has it harvest is only 90 days away!  It just doesn't seem possible...
We hope you are able to enjoy some good wine this summer, regardless of your plans!

Some things are ESSENTIAL in life...
good wine should be one of them!
With the first new release from our family in nearly ten years, the Bogle's are proud to present Essential Red.  Made in our familiar mouthfilling and fruit-forward style, this blend of Old Vine Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah is rich, ripe, luscious and juicy. 

Keep an eye out for our newest "family" member at a retailer near you this summer...

         Picnic Al Fresco
We all have fond high school memories of the infamous Shakespeare quote "Something's rotten in the state of Denmark."  But it sounds like some of our best customers disagree with ol' Hamlet! 


Dear Bogle Friends:

Attached are some pictures from our vacation in Denmark!  We (Beverly Sandeen and Marty Swingle, proud Bandwagon members) traveled with our friends/neighbors, Mary, Jorgen, and Sami Bateman to Denmark and Spain together.  Jorgen is Danish, and when his family travels to visit us in California, we always take them to our favorite place -- Bogle Vineyards!  Jorgen's family loves Bogle, and so they took us to their favorite wine shop in Denmark.  While there, we spoke with the owners about the Bogle wines they carried, and OF COURSE bought Bogle for our family dinners together during our vacation!  Yum!


We always look to see if Bogle is carried at stores and wine shops when we travel.  We've seen Bogle in Ireland, Scotland, England, Denmark, Italy, Germany, Australia, and all over the United States.  As we continue our travels, we'll continue to seek out Bogle wines!  Thank you for making sure we have good wines to enjoy at home and when we travel the world!

Thanks to Beverly, Marty and friends...
2011 Moscato, Clarksburg
Nothing says "Summer is here!" like the simply succulent Moscato!  Accents of juicy pears and crunchy, crisp apples layer with the flavor and richness of floral honeysuckle. Local lavender honey lingers on the finish, with some well-balanced freshness rounding out the wine.

2011 Petite Sirah Rosé, Clarksburg
Deeply pink in color, this fuchsia-hued vintage brings back memories of fruit punch popcicles and summer strawberries dripping with juice. Fresh, thirst quenching watermelon adds dimension, while spicy pink peppercorns keep the finish brisk and refreshing.


Both wines are best served chilled, and are perfect for every summer celebration!

AVAILABLE:  At our tasting room in Clarksburg.

                 It's the season for wine tastings!

ESSENTIAL barbecue...
What better way to kick off summer?
The secret is in the sauce, right?  This slow-cooked recipe is divine on just about anything:  glazed on grilled chicken, slathered on smoked ribs, mixed in a pulled pork sammie, spread on flatbread for a quick homemade pizza. The enjoyment is endless AND essential!


2 yellow onions, diced ¼"

1 red pepper, diced ¼"

1 bottle Bogle ESSENTIAL RED

1 cup orange juice (full pulp)

1 cup beer

2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

2 tsp. hot sauce

½ cup cider vinegar

½ cup apple juice

¼ cup honey

2 cloves garlic, grated

2 T. honey mustard

1 ½ cup brown sugar

1 cup ketchup

1 T. butter

Salt & pepper, to taste

Cooking instructions:
  • Heat a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onions, butter and pinch of salt and caramelize for 20 minutes, until deeply brown and sweet.
  • Reduce heat slightly. Add the red pepper and sauté with the onions for another 10 minutes. Watch carefully to avoid scorching.

  • Add the bottle of ESSENTIAL RED. (Minus one glass to enjoy while you cook!) 
  • Reduce at a low simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Add the orange juice and reduce for another 20 minutes.
  • Add the beer and reduce for 10 minutes.
  • Add your Worcestershire, hot sauce, vinegar, apple juice, honey, garlic, mustard and a couple teaspoons of ground pepper. Simmer 20 minutes. (Keep all ingredients on hand to tweak with later.) 
  • Add the brown sugar and ketchup and simmer for 20 more minutes. Start tasting!
  • Taste and adjust:  
    •  Too sweet, add vinegar and a touch of salt.
    • Too sour, add more brown sugar or honey. 
    •  Needs body, add ketchup.
    • Too thick, thin with juice.
  • Go low and slow...the longer it simmers, the more concentrated the flavors!

There are no rules on this one...enjoy with any of our white or red wines, depending on what you pair the sauce with!
