Bien Nacido is well known as a historic vineyard that has played an important role in the development of Californian wine.
Since the 1970s, ambitious winemakers have bought top-notch fruit from its owners, the Miller family, who also own Solomon Hills – another important vineyard in Santa Maria Valley. What is less well-documented is that the Millers also make wines under their own estate labels and today “they are among the finest in California” (Antonio Galloni). Winemaker Trey Fletcher is young, passionate and extremely ambitious; a protégé of Ted Lemon at the world-class Littorai in Sonoma. This is undoubtedly “now one of the hottest wineries in California” and any discerning wine lover should take note of these superb, handcrafted wines whose pedigree is simply unparalleled.
