Shauna became enamored with learning everything she didn’t already know about winemaking, and immersed herself in learning about wines from around the world. In this pursuit, Shauna also completed the Master’s Executive Winemaking Program at UC Davis. Her passion for winemaking started with big, juicy Zinfandels and has spread far and wide. She loves making sparkling wine, old favorites like Chardonnay and Cab and more esoteric varieties like Fiano and Teroldego. She considers her wine to be her artistic medium, so to drink a glass of her wine is to taste her ephemeral art.
Kent Rosenblum brings over 40 years of winemaking experience to Rock Wall Wine Company. After building Rosenblum Winery from a 400- to a 250,000-case producer, Founder/Winemaker Kent Rosenblum sold the winery in 2008. He then started up Rock Wall, with daughter, Shauna as winemaker. “We wanted to go back to a family business that focused on great wines and having a good time,” says Kent. For Kent, making wine has always been about a willingness to explore viticultural regions and experiment with winemaking techniques, which is the legacy he has passed on to his daughter. Today, Shauna heads up the cellar at the 30,000-case family venture, with Kent as CEO. A family affair, Rock Wall is about having fun, while making the best wines from the best regions and sharing the experience with others. As Kent always says, “Never underestimate the value of a little fun.”
