Winemaker Notes

It is my pleasure to announce that there is at least one thing in life that appears to be improving with time and that is our comprehension of the riesling grape. The 99 Pac Rim is a bit of a breakthrough. Firstly, we have allowed just the teensiest bit of residual sugar to repose in the finished wine - "letting love in," as it were, in the parlance of my twin-brother-seperated-at-birth, Terry Theise. We contrived to boost the acid a little bit, picking the grapes a little earlier and the result is a fresher, more vibrant wine with greater retention of primary fruit. And as an added bonus and at no extra charge, the wine actually seems to work far better with sushi and other umami-intensive cuisine that Pac Rims pasado. Very distinctive green apple and elder-blossom Mosel nose. If weve not gotten through to you by now, now this is the time.

Based in Santa Cruz, heartland of New Age thinking and deferred transition to adulthood, Bonny Doon Vineyard has a not-so surprising history of idealism and innovation. Founded by Randall Grahm in the bucolic hamlet of Bonny Doon, California, in 1983, we’re known for strikingly original wines made from lesser-known (though no less noble) grape varieties, the vinous Ugly Ducklings. Bonny Doon Vineyard made its mark with pioneering work with Rhône varieties, innovative production techniques, and imaginative marketing that has, truth be told, sometimes been too clever by half. Since the adoption of biodynamic farming practices in 2004 and the radical slimming down of product portfolio and case production in 2006 (with a concomitant greater degree of focus and attention to detail), the wines evince a more complex expression of varietal character, a more noticeable sense of organization, and a greater degree of life-force.

Come visit our Tasting Room, located at 450 Highway 1, Davenport, CA, about 10 miles north of Santa Cruz. 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’re here to serve mankind (wines that are out of this world).
