About Sol Rouge
Tucked in between Mount Konocti and Benson Ridge in the Mayacamas, 70 acres of rolling green land sprouts rows of tangling grapevines. This is Sol Rouge, a vineyard and winery dedicated to producing grape varietals of southern France's Rhone and Bordeaux regions. The owners chose the location because of its rich, red volcanic soil and microclimates, which are similar to the French regions' characteristics. The land is ideal for growing such grape varieties as grenache, mourvèdre, counoise, and cabernet franc, and they harvest them to produce wines in small lots and very limited quantities.
Because of their wine's scarcity, they discourage bathing in it and offer it only to wine-club members and those on their mailing list. However, having toiled endlessly on producing such fine wines, they want to share it with as many wine lovers as possible. At their winery tasting room on Treasure Island, they treat guests to samples and their extensive wine knowledge. For further merriment, they invite visitors to play spirited games of bocce ball on their private court.
