The Journey Begins
The Journey began as our first wines were made in the fall crush of
2009, literally by hand. Shaun and Jeannine spent many days and nights
discovering what kind of wine style we wanted to produce. After many
samples, they landed on the wine style of Northern Italy. These wines lend
themselves to being fruit forward, having a full mouth feel and
finishing softly (minimal tannins). We purchased our first grapes from
growers in the El Dorado and Amador counties. The fruit was crushed, bin
fermented, and pressed by hand using a basket press. We selected each
yeast for what qualities we wanted to achieve in the wine and then
barrel fermented our reds in French Oak for 24 months. Shaun became a
‘mad apprentice’ in the making of the wines and continues to expand his
knowledge each year. In addition to learning wine making, Shaun has
donned his farmer’s hat and has learned a great deal about growing and
care of the vines.
The Name Game
Coming up with a name for the winery is no simple task. With Shaun’s
heritage being Scandinavian and Norwegian, using our last name of
Blaylock was really not an option. We knew that we had a love of roses
and that they would play a predominant role in our landscaping. We had
thought Rosewood would be a nice name for the winery. Our friends
thought it was too commercial sounding and that we should have an
Italian name for the winery being that we were making all Italian wines.
We bought an Italian-English translator and began playing with various
English words looking for a great Italian translation. Nothing seemed to
work; in sheer desperation, Jeannine put in Rosewood into the
translator and up popped ‘Palissandro’. We immediately loved the name
and knew that we had found the name of our winery.
A Family Affair
One of the things that we (and many of our customers) enjoy most
about the winery is that it really is a family affair. Both Brandon and
Lauren have taken a complete interest in the wine and sharing the
results in the tasting room. Brandon has completed his third and last
apprenticeship in the fall of 2013 with a larger, local winery. Brandon
worked as an assistant wine maker with Shaun and a consultant in 2013.
By 2014, Brandon has taken over the primary wine making responsibilities
with the help of a new consultant. Lauren loves the business side of
the winery, helping with making the wine, and working the tasting room.
She has completed pursuing her education and working toward her AA
degrees in Wine Business and Enology at Santa Rosa JC and has returned
to work full time at the winery. We are certain you will enjoy her
enthusiasm and knowledge that she has gained when you visit with her in
the tasting room.
Jeannine can’t help but think that her grandfather would be so proud
that the family wine making is once again alive and doing very well!
