Rococo is a white wine project focused exclusively on Central Coast Chenin Blanc. Rococo Wines began in the summer of 2016 when Natalie visited the Los Alamos Vineyard for the first time and by chance was introduced to a small patch of old vine Chenin Blanc. The vineyard, nestled between the Santa Maria and Santa Ynez valleys, and luckily surviving redevelopment to more lucrative and productive varieties, still has 3 remaining acres of own-rooted Chenin Blanc planted circa 1974.
Years later, Natalie has expanded Rococo's portfolio to include multiple single vineyard California Chenin Blancs. These vineyards emphasize own-rooted, dry farmed, old vines and vineyards run by multigenerational farmers.
The Rococo portfolio now includes the Own Rooted multi-vineyard blend, Single Vineyard Series Chenin Blancs, and the Reserve Chenin Blanc.
Rococo (pronounced roh-coh-coh) is an art movement that existed in the late 1700’s to early 1800’s at the tail end of the Baroque period. It is known for being playful, ornate, and asymmetrical. Rococo art was a social pushback against the rigidity and structure of the Baroque period it followed. Rococo wines are playful, expressive, and juxtaposed to more popular fad varieties that currently saturate the wine market.
