From the web site: "Bonneau Winery is operated by the third generation of Bonneaus with family history dating back to the early 1920s in the Sonoma – Los Carneros appellation. The Bonneaus originally came to America from the vineyard lands of Bordeaux, France and began farming a 70 acre parcel of land just south of the town of Sonoma. After growing and providing Chardonnay grapes to several well known wineries in both Sonoma & Napa, the family launched its own label in 2002.

Bonneau sources its red varietal grapes from top vineyards in Sonoma, Napa, & Amador counties. Winery operations take place in Kenwood. Barrels are aged in caves sunk deep in the foothills located on the west side of the Sonoma Valley.

John Bambury is the Director of Winemaking and handles all the winemaking responsibilities.


Personal comments: This is one of the newest tasting rooms in the valley, and consists of a small space carved out of the Carneros Deli, which has been in this crossroads location for years. Given that it is so new and it's on the way for anyone entering Sonoma Valley coming north on Highway 121, stop in and check it out. If you're there around lunch, even better -- they will be happy to sell you a glass of wine to go with what you pick up at the deli."
