Based on the years of growing for various wineries and their winemakers, Bob came to learn the special skills and impact a given winemaker can have on a vintage. We know the same grapes can have much different finishes depending on the winemaker’s subtle techniques. We have tasted the results from a cocktail wine, (standing on its own, as a big robust, hot fruit bomb), to the opposite spectrum of a food wine, (great with the meal because of its lower alcohol, higher acid and palate complementary structure). The fact that these distinctly different wines came from the same grapes, picked the same day from the same block, represents the creative impact of the Wine Maker, and the versatility of the grapes themselves.
BobDog Wines will take advantage of this versatility, by using different celebrity Wine Makers, in order to bring novelty and creativity to our vintages. As each vintage is released, the details of the winemaker and his/her pedigree’s will be announced.
In summary, BobDog Wines will provide the consumer with ultra wine quality, based on the ultra grape quality.
Finally, after 15 years, we have matured into a full estate program, joining our experience as growers of premium grapes with the production of custom blended wines in the Bordeaux style. Assisting us in this new format is Alison Schneider our consulting winemaker, magician, calm voice and life line to sanity, all of which are needed in this very demanding business.
