The Bogle family has been farming since the mid-1800’s, but it wasn’t until 1968 that the father and son team of Warren and Chris planted their first 20 acres of wine grapes in Clarksburg, California. Today Bogle Vineyards farms over 1,500 acres of wine grapes and the success of Bogle over the years is rooted in one thing, the day-to-day involvement of the Bogle family. Join Bogle Winery representative Ronnie Gedatus to learn about their wines and taste five of their best paired with a wintery menu presented by Barb and Leanne. Start with Shrimp and Boston Lettuce Salad with Garlic and Mint Dressing matched with Bogle Sauvignon Blanc, and Butternut Squash Soup with Roasted Fennel and Pecans, served with Bogle Pinot Noir. An appetizer course of Lamb Phyllo Triangles is perfect with the Bogle Essential Red and Beef Bourguignon with Buttered Egg Noodles is complemented by their Cabernet Sauvignon.
