Happy summer from Clarksburg!
The vines are done growing for the year, having produced all their fruit, and are putting all their efforts into maturing those clusters to become ripe, juicy, and ready to crush. As they begin to soften and sweeten, flavors deepen as they prepare for harvest in just two months’ time.
You can see all this exciting vineyard action for yourself by visiting our Home Ranch. With tasting experiences offered Thursday through Sunday, as well as daily picnics, we welcome you to come enjoy a day in the Delta, soaking up the sunshine and breeze, just like the vines!

With the reopening of our Home Ranch in May, it was a pleasure to welcome guests back to Clarksburg again! Our family truly missed seeing people wonder at the views, sip and savor our wines, and enjoy their time with friends and family. We are excited to share our home with you again!
Guests have several options to choose from when visiting the Home Ranch:
THE WINE SHOP – Open daily from 10am to 5pm, the Shop is a great place to search for a special gift, browse our locally sourced food items and pick up wines from our entire range of offerings. Wine club members can pop in to pick up their club selections at any time, and guests can sign up for the club with one of our shop attendants…discounts apply immediately!
TASTING EXPERIENCES – Feel like elevating your experience? Our guided 90-minute wine tastings allow guests to take in the views of the Sierra Nevada mountains from the deck while selecting a flight of five wines to enjoy. Each guest can create their own flight from our extensive wine selection or pick one of our curated flights. We have a little something for everyone: Chardonnay-To-Z compares five different of our Chardonnay varietals, while The Bordeaux-zers samples our classical French varietals together in one flight. Others to check out: The OG’s, Run With The Big Dogs, and a favorite for a warm summer day, Here Comes the Sun. Reservations can be made for up to 6 guests, and a charcuterie box can be added to your experience at the time of booking. Available Thursday – Sunday, and holiday Mondays, from 11am-5pm. $20 per person/$15 member
PICNIC AFTERNOONS – For those who want to spend a more casual afternoon at Bogle, book one of our picnic tables nestled in our Home Ranch Chardonnay vineyard. For two and a half hours you’ll share space with the hum of tractors and the lilt of birdsong while you catch up with friends and family. You bring the food and we provide everything else: two bottles of Bogle traditional wine (or 1 wine from our reserve selection) take-away glasses, a corkscrew, and totebag. Reservations are available for up to 6 guests Thursday – Sunday, and holiday Mondays from 11am-5pm. $100 per table/FREE to members
MEMBERS-ONLY DAYS – Our wine club members are our extended family, and we are pleased to welcome you for “members-only” Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Members can book picnic afternoons as well as reserve space on our vineyard patio or grounds at no charge and leisurely enjoy the Home Ranch. This time has been set aside just for our members to take in the quiet, serene surroundings, and soak up all that the Sacramento Delta has to offer.

For the third year, our family is proud to partner with American Rivers, an organization that connects local communities with their rivers and waterways and helps them to effectively fight to protect and defend clean water. We share the belief that healthy rivers and clean water are essential for everyone, everywhere.
American Rivers works throughout the US by helping communities reduce flood risks by championing innovative water management and flood plain restoration techniques, conserving supplies of clean water to combat water insecurity, improving public safety by removing aging dams, and ensuring permanent protection of rivers through Wild and Scenic River designations.
This year we are inviting our community to join us in giving back to nature. For each person who joins us — either by participating in our clean-up challenge, taking a pledge or donating to American Rivers — we will give an additional $5 to American Rivers!
