Spotlight: Bougetz Cellars

Quality can only be achieved if you start with great fruit. Having access to top notch vineyards from Santa Barbara to Eastern Washington has afforded us the opportunity to work with fruit from some of the best vineyards on the West Coast. While the focus is on Napa Valley, when access to a premium vineyard pops up we jump at the chance to add a special bottling to our portfolio.

Thomas Bougetz is the winemaker behind Bougetz Cellars and while working with vineyard owners throughout Northern California, he is constantly looking for new sources of fruit from well-established and well known vineyards. While his background is in Science and Technology, his interests in wine led him back to school to study winemaking at the Northwest Wine Academy in Seattle.

Our emphasis is on Cabernet Sauvignon from various growing regions in Napa Valley. Showing the expression of individual vineyard is a primary focus, but delivering a well-balanced wine that is appreciated on the nose, as well as the palate, is always the ultimate goal.
