Every year Berryessa Gap Vineyards holds an event so wine club members can select the blend for the next release of our beloved "Bellringer" red wine. We hope you enjoy our 2019 vintage winning blend!
Our Zinfandel and Tempranillo blocks are two of the biggest on the vineyard. Planted on two different soil types, the blocks are located on opposite sides of the vineyard. Our Zinfandel and Tempranillo were machine picked and processed on our optical service. All lots are fermented in one-ton bins and inoculated using a blend of yeasts. Once fermentation was completed, each lots was pressed in our traditional basket press and racked to barrels for aging. This wine is 70% Zinfandel and 30% Tempranillo.
