At Bovino Vineyards, we believe that great wine begins with great fruit. If you have great fruit, the rest will take care of itself. Therefore we pay utmost attention to detail in the vineyard and this approach pays dividends when it comes to harvest time in the winery. Planning begins far ahead of harvest to determine how the lots are to be broken up and how each lot is to be fermented and aged. We have a winemaking philosophy to create balanced, terroir driven wines and not burden our wines with excessive ripeness. Once our grapes are picked, we ensure that they get to the winery swiftly while they are still cool. Each lot is meticulously handled so that their varietal character and nuance are preserved.
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.”
