The year is wrapping up in the vineyards, with harvest 100% complete! We are grateful that we had issues from neither fire nor rain this season, and our winemaking team reports that the 2021 vintage looks like another stellar year.
It is hard to believe that we are just a few months shy of the new year. 2021 was a whirlwind and presented so many challenges. Our family celebrates the hard work of our team and partners as we navigated such rocky times. We are definitely lifting our glasses to calmer waters in 2022.
Warren, Jody, and Ryan Bogle
Images of sunshine-filled days go hand-in-hand with afternoons spent in wine country. But now that the days are getting cooler and shorter, don’t discount a visit to Clarksburg for an afternoon at our Home Ranch.
Northern California’s mild fall season creates a lovely setting for enjoying the vineyards in all their multi-colored glory. “With harvest over, the vines start to get ready for their winter sleep,” says Jody Bogle. “Autumn yellows, golds, and oranges make for such a beautiful time of year in the vineyards.”
The view of these vines is perfect from our Home Ranch deck during one of our 90-minute guided Tasting Experiences. Heaters and blankets will keep your toes toasty, while your personally curated wine flight will keep you warm from the inside out. Our cozy lounge area on the Vineyard Patio gets you even closer to the fall colors, with fire pits waiting to be the center of attention. And though the fall foliage will be gone by the solstice, our quiet, fog-filled winter days can be equally tranquil with a glass of red wine in hand.
If your tasting or picnic experience does happen to encounter rain or other inclement weather, don’t worry! Our team will be happy to rebook you so that you can truly enjoy your time, and wine, here in Clarksburg.

The diverse and welcoming city of Austin has long been known for its arts, music and culture. As both a college town and state capitol, the vibe in Austin is just plain entertaining! Last month, Bogle was proud to be an official sponsor of the 2021 Austin Film Festival.
Showcasing our passion for the arts, our family was excited to sponsor the 28th annual event, which ran eight full days in October. The AFF’s mission to further the craft of storytelling by championing hard work and creativity is something we try to do with each vintage and each bottle. “Every bottle of wine tells a story,” says Ryan Bogle, who attended the festival. “It is fun to think that each glass might inspire a fledgling writer or filmmaker as well.”
As the official wine sponsor, Bogle wines were poured at all the venues, including the Opening Night Reception, Late Night Welcome Party, Film Texas BBQ Supper, Writer’s Wine Tasting and “Hair of the Dog” Brunch. The highlight of the week was the premiere of our short film, Flora’s Place, the short film we created based on last year’s winning entry in our Phantom ghost story writing contest. Coupled with our event “A Night of Ghost Stories” in which artists presented their original ghost story to Ryan and Jody Bogle in the allegedly haunted Driskill Hotel, the AFF was fun, enlightening and entertaining.
