About the Vineyard
Bonny Doon Vineyard
Randall Grahm lives for the possibility of someday creating a wine that is also a reflection of the place from whence it derives. He believes that in the world of wine, it is uniquely vins de terroir that matter, enriching our lives and inspiring us with the breath-taking order of Nature herself. He has changed the Bonny Doon Vineyard practice to become far more focused on vineyard or more specifically, soil health, the real cornerstone of vitality in wines. By becoming more thoughtful in vineyard selection, it has been possible for Bonny Doon to largely eschew wholesale manipulation of its wines. Bonny Doon wines may be said to be “acoustic,” or “uninflected,” at the very least lacking in the garish maquillage of many of their New World vinous confrères.
