About

About

Bovino Vineyards and Winery is located in beautiful Templeton, California.  Our estate vineyards are centrally situated in the Templeton Gap which is nestled between the Paso Robles Willow Creek and the El Pomar Districts.  The Templeton Gap consists of a series of mountain passes created by rivers and creeks in the Santa Lucia Range, through which marine air flows into the region.

The Templeton Gap is the coolest climate of the Paso Robles sub-appellations and receives approximately 20 inches of precipitation per year.  The water gap allows marine influences to enter the region which moderate the daily temperatures and increase the amount of time that it takes for grapes to ripen.  The elevations in the area range from 700 to 1,800 feet above sea level with the majority of the wineries located between 800 and 940 feet.

The soils were created by alluvium of the Monterey Formation and are largely made up of silty and clay loams. There are some older soils produced from the Paso Robles Formation that are more cemented and shaly.  Grapes produced in this region include Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignane, Charbono, Chardonnay, Grenache, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Primitivo, Sangiovese, Syrah, Tempranillo, Viognier and Zinfandel.

"Maintain an Attitude of Gratitude."

Winery owner and Philanthropist - Dan Souza

Dan Souza is the new winery owner and an entrepreneur of many businesses who has found new passion in the fine art of viticulture and winemaking. He comes from a long line of farmers and cattle ranchers, and cultivating the land with extraordinary results is nothing new to him. Besides being successful in all his ventures, he is also a philanthropist and generously donates his time and resources to those who need it.

Bovino Vineyards and its signature brands, Joludi & gen·er·os·i·ty, are a clear reflection of who he is as a human being. Joludi is a tribute to his hardworking parents, Joe and Ludrie.  Whereas a portion of all sales of gen·er·os·i·ty wines, will be invested back into the community, especially with the less fortunate. He has made it his life's work to donate to his favorite charitable causes. His friends and family call him Big De, on account of his tall stature and his big heart.

"Grow the best fruit. The rest will take care of itself."

Winemaker and Visionary - Steve Anglim

Steve is the winemaker for Bovino Vineyards, consistently producing high-quality, award-winning wines for us. Steve spent 24 years in the automotive industry before launching his own operation in 2002. He has a B.A. from Central Michigan University and an M.B.A. from Pepperdine University. His winemaking legacy dates back to numerous crushes in his garage and then his own label, and the obligatory “some time at UC Davis.”

Steve's philosophy is simple: “Every grape has its own innate potential. The job of a winemaker is to help realize that potential –and not make mistakes." With 16 varieties on the property, Bovino is a dream. "The range -- from Italian to Bordeaux to Rhône -- presents a rare opportunity to experiment, showcasing unique varietals, such as Arneis, alongside the more traditional, while maintaining the distinctive terroir of El Pomar and Bovino."
