      Winemaker Notes

      I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder, who-oo-oh WHO came up with this particular marketing scheme. They said our love was Dooned. They said our love was wrong. At the very least, they said our Love ain't always on time. This is the very, very long-awaited Framboise, "Book of Love," replete with a "necker" detailing how to implement Framboise as a cunning instrument of seduction. This new and improved version features the "Morrison" variety of raspberry alongst with the redoubtable Meeker and Tulameen varieties. The "Morrison" is a new hybrid, bred at Puyallup, WA, possessing a wonderful wild raspberry character. Extremely vibrant, this is the most super-charged version of Framboise we have yet unleashed on all of those looking for love in all the right places.

      Still the essence of raspberry. Our Framboise™ derives its mystique from three highly aromatic varieties of raspberry cultivated in the state of Washington, namely the Meeker, the Tulameen and the mythical Morrison, an exceptionally flavorful variety selected by us from a raspberry research station in Puyallup, Washington. Prior to the addition of this third variety, we imagined we were already approaching the theoretical limits on the raspberriocity potentiometer. However the Morrison provides an extra quantum of flavor heretofore unknown to fans of this exceptional dessert wine. Perfect for kirs, kir royals, and spritzers.

      Bonny Doon, Central Coast, California
      2002 Raspberry Framboise Book of Love (half-bottle)
      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).

      Central Coast

      View all wine

      The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces the majority of the state's wine. The sprawling district covers most of the vineyard land between San Francisco and Santa Barbara from the coast inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley. Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types, and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including Monterey, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, and Santa Cruz Mountains.

      Just about every major international grape variety is planted within this vast AVA, from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. A significant proportion of the region’s produce is generic, inexpensive bulk wine, but the Central Coast is also home to many small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as everything in between.
