Winemaker Notes

Which Chardonnay do I prefer, Napa or Carneros? When I'm asked that question I often think of the late writer Harry Waugh, who, when asked whether he preferred Bordeaux or Burgundy, replied that he intended to devote the rest of his life to finding out. Our Napa Valley Chardonnay is a fine counterpoint to the Carneros bottling; it has more mineral and earth, compared to the fruit and body of the Carneros. The Napa Valley bottling seems more at home with delicate seafood dishes, like the grilled Dover sole I recently enjoyed at one of my favorite New York City restaurants, while you might pair the Carneros with richer, more rustic food. The winemaking process is identical for both: whole-cluster pressing, natural wild-yeast fermentation in French oak barrels, 100% malo-lactic fermentation, and minimum intervention until bottling after a year of barrel age. 3,224 cases produced

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A good value, the 2004 Chardonnay Napa exhibits notes of orange skin intermixed with tropical fruit (pineapple) in its medium-bodied, richly fruity, tasty, broad, elegant, well-defined personality. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.

Neyers Bruce and Barbara Neyers Winery Image

In 1999, Bruce and Barbara Neyers purchased and renovated a winery on a thirty-acre parcel in the Sage Canyon area of Napa Valley. Over the next 14 months they built a modern, highly functional winery designed for traditional winemaking practices. They produced their first vintage in this state of the art facility in 2000. In 2002, Wine and Spirits Magazine named Neyers Vineyards the Artisan Winery of the Year.

About 25% of our production is Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grown on Bruce and Barbara’s 50-acre, Conn Valley ranch. They purchase additional grapes from a select group of growers, among them the Sangiacomo family of the Carneros District, Will Nord of Napa, the Rossi Ranch of Sonoma County, Markus Bokisch and the Evangelho family.

Even though Neyers Vineyards sits in the heart of the Napa Valley, Bruce's experience with French wine importer Kermit Lynch has had an undeniable influence on their wines. Many of the French producers Bruce has worked with farm organically, make their wines naturally without use of cultured yeast or laboratory designed malo-lactic starter, and bottle their wines without fining or filtration. Neyers barrels are made in France, to our specifications, from wood that we buy in bulk and air dry for three years, two years longer than normal. All of the grapes are picked by hand, into small bins that hold only one-half ton. They are then laboriously hand sorted and inspected at the winery as winemaker Tadeo Borchardt gently guides the winemaking process along. As Bruce says, “No expense has been spared in our grape growing, winemaking practices, or processing equipment, yet customers repeatedly tell us that our wines represent great value in today's highly competitive wine market.” Bruce Neyers produces his own content for the company blog, “Vintner Tales.”
