Rocky Pond – The Winery

April 29, 2017

Rocky Pond 1

Wine is not only an expression of the “terroir” but also a creative expression of the owners of that winery. Rocky Pond is a very good example of this fusion of terroir and winery ownership.

With 50 acres planted in Chelan at Clos CheValle Vineyards and another 165+ acres, 11 miles south of Chelan, Rocky Pond, is an estate centric winery with plenty of grapes to showcase.

Opening their tasting room in Woodinville and in Chelan about a year ago and just in time to share with the public their first commercial wine releases.

Production is small and focused on bringing out the best in that Chelan fruit and terroir. White wines feature estate grown Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Viognier and a sparkling wine made with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Munier

The red Wines are made from grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Malbec, Mourvedre, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, and Syrah.

Rocky Pond is a winery that not only grows the grapes but makes the wine and it’s an authentic experience in the unique terroir from Chelan and a very good dose of the winery owner’s creative and enthusiastic passion for wine.

Wine for the Weekend:

Rocky Pond’s 2015 La Domestique

A fantastic blend made up of 72% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Malbec.

Domestique is a nod to the winery owners passion for cycling.  La Domestiques are the team bike riders that peddle for no glory but for the greater success of the team.    Kind of like Merlot to the more popular Cabernet Sauvignon.
