Established in 1998, John Boekenoogen transformed his family’s fifth generation cattle ranch into a vineyard producing outstanding grapes and now very fine wine. Nestled atop the foothills in the heart of the Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey County, California, lies family owned and operated Boekenoogen Vineyards and Winery. The combination of superior clones, rocky well-drained soils, meticulous viticulture practices, foggy mornings and sunny afternoons moderated by cooling maritime breezes, has resulted in superior grapes. With state of the art winery equipment mixed with old world wine making methods, Boekenoogen Wines are proving to be some of the most pristine wines in the country.
