Announcing our lineup...

Picnic Al Fresco   
Our popular Friday night chill-out session is back this year!  With a stellar lineup of entertaining bands and delicious food vendors, this promises to be a great summer series!
This year, there will be a $10 per person entry fee ($5 for club members.)  A portion of the proceeds will go toward our non-profit partner of the night.  That means that just by attending, you will be contributing to one of twelve different local charities, including the Yolo County Food Bank, Project Ride, WEAVE, Habitat for Humanity, among others.  What an easy way to make a difference!
A couple things to note:  No reservations are necessary, however the lawn area will open promptly at 5pm for those attending Alfresco.  Please ensure that any children in attendance are closely supervised at all times.  Please, no BYOB or pets, thank you. 


Saturday, July 27th  10am-2pm

Long time wine club members Bill & Julia Schaw shared this email they received from very good friends in Sweden!  Thanks Bill & Julia for bringing Malin and Mats Olers to the winery several years ago...and for introducing them to Bogle!!  We are so glad they found it in Sweden!!  


Sending you this picture, that I took last Saturday. One week ago I found out that Systembolaget (where you buy wine in Sweden) should have some bottles from Bogle. So on Friday lunch I went to the nearest Systembolaget here at Liljeholmen, where I work and got 6 bottles of the Zinfandel 2010!!!! And we opened one of them for dinner on Saturday. We got out our Bogle glasses too, we have two different kinds as you can see. It was a very good wine, so we will see if we can find some more at another store.

 Love Malin & Mats & Julia




 Wine in Sweden  




Chardonnay 2012 Chardonnay, California

With the new 2012 vintage of our Chardonnay, Bogle's winemakers  have really outdone themselves!  Capturing the fresh flavors of apples and pears, it is almost as if you were  biting into the fruit, not sipping from a glass.  Partial barrel fermentation allows for spicy touches of vanilla and nutmeg, while a creamy texture rounds out the glass. 


2011 Old Vine Zinfandel, California

Just in time for the grilling season, our Old Vine is a perfect compliment for a multitude of barbecue beauties!  Ripe, red raspberry fruit couples with black pepper and spicy cloves to create a wine to partner with grilled vegetables, seared steaks or cedar-planked salmon. 


Availability: These wines are available at our tasting room in Clarksburg, as well as at wine shops and retailers across the country!

Swedish Seafood Pasta
Perfect timing!!!  Just as Mats and Malin (see article above, Where is Bogle?) were finding the Old Vine Zinfandel in Sweden, Jody Bogle was there to work the market.  While traveling, she enjoyed this dish prepared while she was a guest at her importer's home.  This recipe is courtesy of Gunnar Nordgren of Divine Wine in Stockholm, Sweden.      



2 T.  butter

1/4 cup fennel bulb, chopped finely

2 cups oaked Chardonnay (Bogle is good!)

3/4 cup seafood stock (or crawfish stock, if you have it)

3/4 cup heavy cream

2 tsp. turmeric

2 cups shrimp

1 cup scallops

1 pkg pasta, cooked and drained (linguine or spaghetti, preferred)

Salt & pepper, to taste


Cooking instructions: 

  • Heat butter over medium high heat until melted then add the fennel.  Allow it to sweat a few minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Pour in the wine and stock.  Let it boil for 10 minutes.  Reduce heat.
  • Carefully add the cream, stirring to incorporate.  Add the turmeric, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Just before serving, add the seafood, cooking quickly. 
  • Pour over the pasta and serve with a salad and the rest of the Chardonnay.
