Not only has our family been farming wine grapes for three generations, but we’ve been basketball fans for just as long! As supporters since the days of the good ol’ baby blues, we were thrilled to partner with the Sacramento Kings to create PROUD ROOTS.
Made from Petite Sirah harvested in 2016, the year the Golden 1 Center opened, this wine celebrates the Sacramento area’s agricultural ties and Farm-to-Fork culture. Grown just 15 miles south, on our Sanchez Ranch, these grapes nestle right up against the Sacramento River, which is beautifully depicted on the label. The grapes and the wine are sustainably-certified by the California Rules for Sustainable Winegrowing.
“The Sacramento Kings are leaders in sustainability efforts and our family and staff are excited to partner with them to create something our entire region can be proud of,” says Jody Bogle.
PROUD ROOTS offers fans of wine and basketball alike the opportunity to enjoy complex flavors of blueberries, blackberries, clove and cream soda, complete with a full-bodied finish. The Petite Sirah, blended with a touch of brawny Malbec, was aged in French and American oak for 20 months.
This limited edition can be enjoyed at our tasting room in Clarksburg and at King’s games. For those out of the area, we can ship directly from the winery, where legal.
