Our most recent winery addition to Locals Tasting Room is Bedarra Vineyards. The Bedarra Estate Vineyard is only a mile west of nearby Healdsburg's town center. The epitome of a small artisan winery, fewer than 500 cases of wine are produced here in a year.

The Bedarra brand is inspired by the beauty and tranquility of the remote Bedarra Island, just off the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, where proprietors Jeff and Brigid enjoyed their honeymoon in 2003. Around their home, they grow glorious chardonnay wines, made from their single acre of 15-year old vines. With the backdrop of tropical palm trees on one side and majestic mountains on the other, Bedarra Vineyards is as scenic as it is fruitful.

of Bible text. Archaeology in the Biblical world is often quickly shrouded by gimmicks that demean their purpose – to illustrate a world long past. Attempts by some to indicate this discovery as “greater than the Dead Sea Scrolls” is utterly unwarranted at this point. The Dead Sea Scrolls included a vast collection of both Biblical manuscripts and other important writings, as well as some ordinary writings that help us “glimpse” into antiquity in a unique way. They have not been paralleled in this field, and there is little evidence to suggest this find could deliver on such astounding promises.
