Bancroft Wines announces new Californian wines and wine brand to their list: Castle Rock

From August 2015 Bancroft Wines is delighted to announce a new Californian agency to their list: Castle Rock.

Bancroft Wines will take on four new wines with the following suggested RRPs:

Central Coast Chardonnay £12.50
Monterrey Pinot Noir £15.50
Pasos Robles Cabernet Sauvignon  £13.99
Lodi Zinfandel £13.99

Since its inception in 1994, Castle Rock Winery has built an enviable reputation for producing high quality wines at affordable prices. This winning formula has been highly successful, as proven by an increasing number of customers and members of the wine press who have given the wines glowing reviews.

Castle Rock buys grapes from approximately 40 grape growers, all renowned for their expertise and consistency. In each case, vineyard practices are carried out under the guidance and instruction of Castle Rock’s winemaker, Eric Laumann, all to ensure that quality standards are maintained from start to finish.

After the harvest, the wines are made in accordance with Castle Rock’s winemaking standards, and are bottled at wineries, boasting state-of-the-art equipment, located in Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Oregon’s Willamette Valley, and Washington’s Columbia Valley. One of these wineries includes Francis Ford Coppola – ‘fittingly Hollywood’ with the name ‘Castle Rock’ inspired by the mythical town described in the Stephen King novels.

Castle Rock’s business model aims to please, lovely on the palate, easy on the wallet. By virtue of having a low overhead, (no nagging real estate mortgages, no marketing teams or large staff to employ, and no elaborate facilities) Castle Rock is able to funnel all their capital into making the best possible wine for the best possible price.
