Unconventional but exemplary,
modest but complex
Bend refers to the “bend in the road”: the one that leads you not only to our California winery, but also down the path less taken. This “bend” leads us to discover new things and explore amazing, unforeseen experiences. We bring you the adventure of Bend wines – unconventional but exemplary, modest but complex. We welcome you to journey with us and fall in love with our wines.
Our winery is located around a long, graceful bend in the road lined with rows upon rows of thriving California vines. Although many may not be able to journey down this winded path, at the end you’ll find a bustling sanctuary of hardworking hands. It is a strong shelter for our resting wines and a true discovery for those that venture to seek.
Bursting with vibrant essences of sun-kissed strawberries, a sip of our White Zinfandel will leave you imagining that you just turned a corner to rolling strawberry fields. This gorgeous pink wine is overflowing with flavors and aromas of cotton candy, fresh cut watermelon, and Georgia peach with a touch of tart cherry. Intermingled with a light creamy mouthfeel, this refreshing wine makes the perfect pairing to summer vegetables, creamy pastas, and stone fruit cobblers.
Take a journey with us, glass in hand, and enjoy the enticing honeydew and Golden Delicious apple flavors during this Chardonnay adventure. Aromas of lemon zest and green melon combine with a medley of vanilla oak and tangerine tart flavors, leaving you with a soft creamy mouthfeel. This wine is an extraordinary match to fish fillets, melon with prosciutto, and cream-based soups.
We should really call this wine our Red “Bend,” as it leads you through twists of dark fruit aromas and turns of red berry flavors. The complexity of this wine is truly showcased when you experience the union of Queen Anne cherry and tart raspberry notes with hints of sage and coriander. Plum rind and leather remain on the finish making this a fantastic match to an array of barbecue cuisine and red sauce pastas.
This amazing, unforeseen Merlot will delight your senses with a curious diversity of aromas and tastes. Layers of fig, raspberry and baked rhubarb are married with notes of basil and forest floor, while moderate tannins surround lingering notes of dried blackberries. This medium-bodied wine pairs well with artisanal cheeses, pulled pork, and mushroom pizza.
We invite you to discover and explore this decadent California Cabernet Sauvignon that begins its adventure with robust aromas of tobacco, clove and red licorice. Flavors of cherry, dark plum, and wild blackberry are abundant as they are accompanied by firm touches of bay leaf and earth. A full-bodied velvety mouthfeel and lasting finish make this an ideal complement to steak frites, mushroom risotto, as well as Gruyere and blue cheeses.
