Nominee: American Winery of the Year
Grounded in organic and Biodynamic® farming practices for nearly 30 years, Bonterra Organic Vineyards’ team is driven by a passionate belief that better wines are made from farms rich with biodiversity and teeming with healthy soils. All of Bonterra’s acclaimed varietal wines are crafted from 100% certified organic vineyards in California, and their exceptional character expresses the harmony of meticulous winemaking brought together with vibrantly flavorful fruit. Rounding out the Bonterra collection is a trio of sought-after, single-vineyard wines from estate Biodynamic® vineyards in Mendocino County.
Long before organic produce filled the shelves of neighborhood groceries, Bonterra was a dedicated to enhancing vine, wildlife and soil in pursuit of classic wines perfectly in tune with nature. Crafted by Winemaker Jeff Cichocki, together with Founding Winemaker Bob Blue, Bonterra wines are America’s most popular wines from organically farmed grapes.
