Bakestone wines are an expression of the Cakebread Family’s experience of over four decades of winemaking in California, to produce enjoyable well-balanced wines from California’s cool North Coastal Valleys. The Bakestone name is a riff on their family name, Cakebread. The ancient name of Cakebread is derived from a name for a baker of fine bread or the maker of cakebrede, bread made in flattened cakes. “Bakestone” is a flat piece of stone or iron, also called a Planc that can be used for baking cakes, scones and tarts. Within the various vineyards that comprise Bakestone wines, Cakebread look for grapes with up-front fruit character and complexity that can be enhanced by ageing in French oak barrels and will finish with an uplifting freshness.
From legendary Californian producer Cakebread, comes their second label, Bakestone Cellars. Notes of sweet apples and honeysuckle combine with fresh citrus, melon and pear.
