Story
Tagline
Premium limited-production organic and Biodynamic wines. Resistance is futile.
Introduction
Founded in 1983 by Randall Grahm, Bonny Doon Vineyard made its mark on the vinous world with its pioneering efforts with Rhône varieties. Grahm was one of California's original Rhône Rangers.

After years of ever-expanding production, Bonny Doon downsized to focus on creating unique and distinctive wines that are truly expressive of place. With a production of just 35,000 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 and 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.

Come visit us at 450 Highway 1, Davenport, CA
10 miles north of Santa cruz, directly adjacent to the Roadhouse Bar & Grill
We look forward to serving you!

"So, having personally reached a bit of a dead-end, I’ve been wondering if there might be an approach that will enable California to create truly unique wines that are unlike those of anywhere else.
As it turns out, I have a radical notion that might represent a route for vineyards in California, seeking to find a unique path towards a wine of place, and thus arguably “necessary.”

You expect to see dramatic cliffs and ocean views along Pacific Coast Highway, but you may not expect to stumble upon a winery tasting room. Yet here lies the Bonny Doon Vineyard tasting room, just across the street from the beach. Inside a vintage building, a delightful experience awaits as you step into the eccentric world of winemaker Randall Grahm.

Winemaker Randall Grahm's whimsical tasting room pours serious fun in Davenport.

We're minding our own beeswax. Now and zin / Words on wine by Randy Fuller. The '13 Le Cigare Blanc shows in the glass just slightly richer than pale gold. Aromas of quince and peach are smacked with a delightful salinity - not quite the smell of salt water, but pretty close to it. There's a note of candle wax in there, too. ‪#‎lecigareblanc‬ ‪#‎roussanne‬ ‪#‎grenacheblanc‬ ‪#‎picpoulblanc‬ ‪#‎bonnydoonvineyard

Who Do You Have To Know To Get A Proper Claret Around Here? The wine is as dark as night. Black fruit on the nose is adorned in customary Grahm-savory fashion by notes of sage, rosemary and a delicious black olive scent. The palate shows blackberry and cassis, but the wine is not dominated by fruit. Notes of cedar, cinnamon and cardamom play a huge role on the palate.
