What happens when you have a single barrel from 2007 and craft your own signature drinking glass to pour it into?
A One of a Kind Barrel Of Wine
This is a very special bottling from a barrel that has been with us since the beginning. In 2007 we brought in a mix of varieties and experimented making rosé. This barrel was left outside in the sun for one year. It's a blend of Grenache and Syrah and we refer to it as “2007 Rosé” – it's truly a piece of Broc history having traveled with us to different locations throughout the years. We decided for the first time in over 10 years to open the barrel and take a sip – what we found inside was a happy surprise!
This is the very rarest of treats from the winery. Since the barrel was never topped off, the wine has oxidized into something beautiful, aging elegantly with tastes of flor yeasts. We recommend sipping slightly chilled. Open your bottle and let us know what you think.
From concept, to mock-up, to mold, to blowing, to presentation, and then ready for the table. The process of creating something special.
"When the Bay Area first locked down in April, Chris and I had more time to think creatively at home. Home felt really special in those first weeks during lockdown. We thought about designing a wine glass that we would love holding and drinking from. A piece of art. Unique and beautiful. Something versatile - maybe not just for wine. No limits." - Bridget
"Wine can be enjoyed in whatever vessel you like. Sometimes a certain wine tastes better in a different glass than the one you use at home. If you want your senses to open up and explore a wine there are really elegant glasses that bring you on that journey. But, with this glass, we were thinking mostly of style and the feel in your hand - the comfort while drinking at home. A tall stem is not always our idea of comfort especially with a toddler running around. Stems tend to give more of a serious tone to wine. These glasses give the feel of making wine more relaxing."
"The glasses reflect our vision but it's Rafi’s signature look. We wanted to make sure that he was expressing himself as a designer. We love the multifaceted walls. Imperfections are what makes each piece special, you can feel how special they are. It's super rare to see hand made glass anywhere these days."
