We’re here to serve mankind (wines that are out of this world). This is a wonderful intimate space that is the perfect venue to enjoy our doon-home wines, even if your home is perhaps Alpha Centauri. We are about 10 miles north of Santa Cruz on Highway 1, littorally (sic) adjacent to the Davenport Roadhouse.
Based in Santa Cruz and founded in 1983 by Randall Grahm, Bonny Doon Vineyard made its mark on the vinous world with its pioneering efforts with Rhône varieties. Founder and president-for-life Randall Grahm was one of California's original Rhône Rangers.
After years of ever-expanding production, Bonny Doon has lately downsized to focus on creating unique and distinctive wines that are truly expressive of place. With a production of just 25,000 cases, we supplement our our flagship Cigare family—Le Cigare Volant, Le Cigare Blanc, and Vin Gris de Cigare—with a small line of exquisite Club-only wines made from rare an remarkable varieties like Grenache Blanc, Nebbiolo, and Riesling.
Since adopting Biodynamic® farming practices in 2004, Bonny Doon Vineyard wines evince a deeper sense of place, complexity, and varietal expression and a noticeable sense of organization. We aim to make the most soulful wines we can possibly muster—wines of vibrant vitality, a deeper sense of place and life force.
We invite you to share in our most passionate and terrestrial expressions: the wines of Bonny Doon Vineyard.
