Welcome to Foot of the Bed Cellars
I’m Luc Bergevin, and together with Martin Sheehan-Stross, we’re building a wine company. To learn why we're doing this and what we're about, click here. Our twenty-third release is highlighted below.
2017 Sauvignon Blanc (Musqué Clone)
Winery: Berryessa Gap Wines
Appellation: Yolo County
From Martin: "This Sauvignon Blanc comes from a special clone of the grape variety known as Sauvignon Musqué. A clone is a vine that has been specifically isolated and propagated for desirable traits. While Sauvignon Blanc has been wildly popular for several decades now, this particular clone of the grape variety has seen a rise in popularity among winegrowers in recent years. Sauvignon Musqué is aptly named for the highly aromatic qualities it displays. It is less grassy than many other Sauvignon Blanc clones and shows bright grapefruit and tropical melon tones with a clean, dry finish."
2017 Red Wine
Blend: 50% Valdiguié, 50% Carignane
Winery: Hobo Wine Company
Appellation: Redwood Valley
From Martin: "This release is our third custom blend and our second such blend made with Kenny Likitprakong. Although Kenny’s wines have long been known for their incredible value, he only sources grapes from vineyards that meet his exacting standards. Everything is farmed sustainably, with fair labor practices as well. This wine is fifty percent Valdigué and fifty percent Carignane. The two halves come together for a custom wine that is light on the palate, yet packs loads of fresh fruit aromas and peppery tones."
