For “Saint Cabora”, they poured aged cider over fresh-pressed pomace from the inimitable Sonoma wineries, who were so kind and generous to collaborate with us. Bucklin and Bedrock are both winemakers who value the tradition of dry-farmed historic fruit as much as they do.
They sourced apples that were not irrigated or sprayed and blended the cider with dry-farmed historic grape pomace that was otherwise going to go to waste. In these collaborations with winemakers in their communities, they are creating new paradigms for conscious consumerism based on readily available agricultural goods that demand little resources in comparison to conventional agriculture and yet remain undervalued. If viewed with appreciation, such as with their collaborations, they are proving that it is possible to create elevated, natural wines, ciders, and more, without exhausting their community's natural resources.
The figure of Saint Cabora came to them because, historically, she was a healer who drew from her inner agency to help and heal others. She traveled between Mexico and the US. The relationship between the two countries, (being that California was so recently Mexico) has always been a powerful metaphor for them at Bardos. Throughout Northern Mexico and later California, she became known colloquially as “The Mexican Joan of Arc”.
From testimonies, Saint Cabora was a healer insofar as she was like a great mirror to the part in those who she helped that harbored their own restoration.
