Broc Cellars Counoise


Broc Cellars, started by Chris Brockway, proves that you don’t need to rely on the crutches of modern technology to  make beautiful wines. Don’t get me wrong, he’s happy to use science along the way, but instead of manipulating he uses  his knowledge to guide the wine along. This means organic grapes harvested at the exact right time; indigenous yeast  populations for fermentation; no sugar nor acid nor colour nor artificial flavor nor enzymes nor diammonium phosphate  added; no new oak is used; the wine is not fined nor filtered; less than half the sulphur of a normal wine is used. The  results speak for themselves.

“Harvested at 22.5 Brix, Counoise is always our last varietal to come into the winery. Displaying medium-sized berries on large clusters, it’s also one of the heaviest. 100% de-stemmed fruit fermented in 5-ton open top fermenters and aged for 10 months in neutral French oak barrels. Counoise is mostly used as a blending varietal in the Southern Rhone. We initially planned to blend it for our first vintage, but Eagle Point Ranch’s Counoise is unique from what’s typically seen in the few plantings that exist in the state. This wine unwinds with each minute being opened. 2018 is the last vintage we made. Stock up, share with friends, and age a few bottles – this is a Broc gem.” – Chris Brockway, Broc Cellars
