Introducing the remarkable Castalia Pinot Noir Rochioli Vineyard 2020, a creation by the skilled hands of winemaker Terry Bering. Displaying an enchanting garnet hue, this vintage beckons with an array of up-front red fruits, such as vibrant raspberries and luscious strawberries. Yet, it’s the intricate layers of fragrance that truly captivate the senses – a harmonious dance of spices and delicate flowers that adds depth and allure to the experience.

In terms of body, this Pinot Noir strikes a perfect balance between medium and full, showcasing a fruit-forward profile that delights the palate. Its supple nature and undeniably delightful mouthfeel make it an undeniable treat for wine enthusiasts. Terry Bering’s expertise shines through in every sip, crafting a wine that embodies the essence of the Rochioli Vineyard.

The 2020 vintage is a rare gem, with Terry Bering producing a mere 125 cases – a testament to his commitment to excellence. A substantial portion hails from the renowned “West Block” within the Rochioli vineyard, a location known for its exceptional quality. Notably, Bering’s artistry comes to life with a nuanced touch of 20% new French oak, a departure from Rochioli’s 100% new wood approach for the “West Block.”

This Castalia creation is nothing short of a vinous marvel, a wine where dynamic elements converge to create a vibrant symphony of flavors and aromas. With only 30 cases available for distribution, it stands as a true treasure from a vineyard rockstar. The Castalia Pinot Noir Rochioli Vineyard 2020 is not just a wine; it’s an embodiment of Terry Bering’s dedication and the essence of a legendary vineyard.

Winemaker of Castalia Pinot Noir Rochioli Vineyard 2020

Terry Bering

Terry Bering's winemaking journey began humbly, as a garagiste crafting Cabernet Sauvignon in a friend's Healdsburg carport back in 1983. It was in 1985 that he ventured into the realm of Pinot Noir. His path took a significant turn when he crossed paths with Tom Rochioli, leading him to participate in the 1988 and 1989 grape crush at J. Rochioli Vineyards. In 1990, Terry abandoned his real estate career to embrace the role of cellar master at J. Rochioli Vineyards. The pivotal moment arrived in 1992, when he founded Castalia Wines, a label rooted in grapes purchased from Rochioli Vineyard. Today, Terry Bering stands as a devoted pinotphile, with Castalia embodying the spirit of ancient Greece's Apollo and his inspiring spring on Mount Parnassus.
