Introducing your new favorite medium-bodied red. It’s a wine that will hold up to chillier months, but still feels refreshing when the temperature climbs and the days are long. Their Cabernet Pfeffer hails from two vineyards: Siletto Vineyards in San Benito and 40-year-old vines at Enz Vineyard, the only vineyard in the Lime Kiln AVA south of Hollister, CA. One of Cabernet Pfeffer’s greatest mysteries is when it arrived in California and how the small amount of Cienaga Valley plantings have stayed isolated in this area more than 100 years later. The Cabernet Pfeffer underwent whole cluster carbonic maceration in concrete tank to tame the grape’s bold tannins. Once fermentation finished, it was lightly pressed and aged in neutral oak barrique for five months. Easy to chill, fun to open.
FUN FACT: SOGI is a nickname for where the vineyard is located in relation to our winery. Broc Cellars is located in the Gilman district of Berkeley. The vineyard is located South of Gilman – hence SOGI!
Their goal in making wine is to bring out the natural expression of the grape. They use organically grown grapes and harvest early for more healthy grapes that retain their good acidity. This often results in lower alcohol wines and the lower Brix (sugar content) at harvest, which allows for easier fermentations. All Broc wines are made using spontaneous fermentation, which means only native yeasts and bacteria that exist on the grapes are used to make the wine. They may add a minimal amount of sulphur at bottling depending on the year, wine and style. They never add sulphur during fermentation and aging.
We source an eclectic mix of grapes from all over California, working with vineyards as far south as Paso Robles and as far north as Mendocino. All of the vineyards are organically farmed and family-owned.
