For Phillip LaRocca, owner and vintner, the character of the wine is absolutely dependent upon the quality of the grape. Growing grapes organically includes using farming methods that nurture the soil, air and water. Through the process of totally excluding the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides, all of LaRocca Vineyards receive organic certification by CCOF. In 1998, California farmers used 215 million pounds of chemicals. Reports filed with California's agricultural authorities list 17 "highly poisonous" insecticides, fungicides and herbicides used in conventional grape production. – Description from dvoristanac

  • La Rocca Vineyards Merlot Estate Bottled 2008

    Snoothrank:

    It appears to be a clear, pale garnet color. It has a light, clean scent of earth (mushroom), black fruit (black cherry and blackberry), and a little dried fruit (prune). The wine is light and dry on the palate with medium acidity, medium tannins, and medium body. Like the nose, it tastes of earth, black fruit, and dried fruit. Read More

  • I've finally found a premium organic wine that I can confidently serve my company and enjoy myself. I understand it is also a raw food with live enzymes and is vegan!
