The countdown to summer is on!  We are just a few weeks away from our busiest event season ever with an amazing line up for you this year!  Whether you come to see us at an event or just wander down the River Road, we hope we get to spend a little time with you this summer!  And...for those of you too far to visit, we hope a glass of Bogle graces your picnic table...

Tasting Room  


New Entrance 
Our crew has been hard at work the last few weeks on the lawn and picnic area in Clarksburg.  An expanded patio space, new lawn and rearranged landscaping have been just a few of the projects keeping our hands dirty this spring.  We appreciate everyone's patience as the work has been done and our space has been limited. 
Largely due to some of our local country critters, we have  had to get creative in our landscaping and maintenance of the new lawn area.  Who knew raccoons liked to play with pieces of sod like a rug?   
Regardless, we will be re-opening the lawn to picnickers and guests for Mother's Day weekend.  Come check out the new look and let us know what you think!  We hope to spend many hours enjoying the space in the coming months!
Lawn Damage
Critter Damage!


by Warren Bogle, President & Vineyard Manager
Spring is here again with beautiful weather this year. The vines came out of dormancy this year on March 12th with Chardonnay bud break. With the beautiful weather the vines have grown nicely and we are now in bloom from Chardonnay, Merlot and even Petite Sirah. We have taken cluster counts and the numbers are slightly above average, but we are a long way from harvest.  I like to say don't count on your clusters till they are picked. We are now going to start to water some varieties that we do not dry farm and also pull leaves from the canopy for quality and to lower disease pressure. All looks good so far.

Folks all over the country have enjoyed Bogle, but this was a first...using a Bogle bottle of wine to promote a vacation rental!  Patty Hoover of Story, Wyoming did just that when listing her "unique" vacation locale!  Sure looks cozy!  
Hi Bogle,

A few years ago you helped me with a broken bottle of I thought you might like this shot that we used of another of your wine bottles in front of our sheepwagon.  We were updating our website to add it to our guest haus site.  Thought you would get a kick out of it.

 The Sheepwagon 



2012 Moscato, Clarksburg

We know many of you look forward to our spring release of Moscato...and this vintage is another fun wine to sip!  Aromatics of blooming roses and honeysuckle couple with rich honeydew melon and juicy pears to create this refreshingly luscious wine. 


2012 Viognier, Clarksburg

Bogle winemakers have taken the versatile Viognier grape and vinted it purely in cold stainless steel tanks to capture the expressive characters of the grape:  apricot, banana, pineapple, cardamom spice and vanilla.  Rich, silky and delicious!


2010 Reserve Petite Sirah, ORV Clarksburg

A wine for the ages...this single vineyard was picked ripe and shows its intensity as it is poured into the glass.  Deeply inky, black cherries and blueberries take over the senses, while touches of pipe tobacco lead to a full and robust finish.  This wine can cellar for at least 10 years!


Availability:  These three special releases are available in our tasting room in Clarksburg.  Contact us at for order information!

Thai Noodle Salad
The exotic flavors in Asian dishes can pair brilliantly with our spring white wines.  Light and fresh, yet full of flavor and delicious, this entree salad can be made in this vegetarian style, or feel free to add grilled chicken or shrimp for a heartier meal. 
       Serves 4 as an entree, 6 as a side.



12 oz. somen noodles

1 carrot, cut into thin strips

1 bunch asparagus, cut into 1" lengths

1 red bell pepper, seeded, cut into strips

1 cup snow peas

1 cup bean sprouts

1 can sliced water chestnuts, drained

1 lime, cut into wedges

1/2 cup roasted peanuts

1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

For the dressing:

 3 T. fresh basil leaves, torn

3 T. fresh mint leaves, chopped

1 cup coconut milk

2 T. sesame oil

1 T. fresh ginger root, grated

2 garlic cloves, grated

Juice of 1 lime

2 spring onions, chopped

Salt & pepper, to taste


Cooking instructions: 

  • First, make your dressing.  Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.  Season to taste with salt & pepper.  Chill until ready to use.
  • On the stovetop, bring a large pot of water to boil.  Cook the noodles, following any instructions on the package.  Drain, rinse in cool water, and set aside.
  • In another pot of boiling water, blanche all the vegetables, from carrots to bean sprouts, in individual batches, for about 2 minutes each.  Remove from the boiling water immediately into an ice bath to stop cooking and retain crispness.  Drain and set aside.
  • When ready to serve, toss the noodles with the cooked vegetables, water chestnuts and dressing.  Garnish with the lime, peanuts and cilantro.  Enjoy with a glass of Bogle Moscato or Viognier!
