Quality can only be achieved if you start with great fruit. Having access to top-notch vineyards from Santa Barbara to Eastern Washington has allowed Bougetz the opportunity to work with fruit from some of the best vineyards on the West Coast. In the cellar, Bougetz focuses on methods that assist in extracting the most from the fruit, while still handling it as gently as possible. Minimal movement of the wine during aging allows the blends to best display the vintage and vineyard sites.
While the focus is on Napa Valley, when access to a premium vineyard is available, Bougetz seizes the opportunity to add a special bottling to the portfolio. Showing the expression of individual vineyards is a primary focus, but delivering a well-balanced wine that on the nose, as well as the palate, is always the ultimate goal. Bougetz Cellars has certainly achieved this, winning multiple awards at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and Toast of the Coast.
