What is wine? Some might say it’s a fine beverage meant for a glass. We won’t argue with that. But we at Bonterra believe that a wine should also be a perfect expression of the grape from which it’s made and the land on which those grapes are grown.
That belief informs everything we do here. It’s why we grow lavender, olives and hundreds of other plants in addition to grapes, and why chickens and sheep roam amongst our vines. It’s why you’ll see bird and owl boxes fixed atop scattered posts. All these small details help make our vines some of the strongest in the world, and that shows through in our wines. Because we know that diversity on our ranches is imperative for the health of our grapes and our ecosystem.
What is Bonterra wine? It’s a family of bright, fresh and balanced varietals just as they’re meant to be. Our organic growing approach creates grapes that are pure, vibrant and intense in flavor. This provides our winemakers with the very best fruit from which to work. From there it is simply about delivering the best expression of that fruit from our vines to your glass.
