I attended a tasting of Once and Future, Bedrock and single Vineyard Ravenswood given by Joel Peterson in November where he expained the name of his new venture.
‘Once I was a small scale winemaker who sourced grapes from growers and made the wine all myself, and will do so in Future.’
His intention is to make only what he can himself.
Once of course was the early days of Ravenswood
Joel Peterson (he’s explaining the Monte Rosso vineyard which is used by Bedrock - his son’s wine - but it didn’t go into the Bedrock Old Vine 2015 zin stocked by TWS recently as it’s planted to Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc planted in the early 1880s)
