BIEN NACIDO

Bien Nacido vineyard & Solomon Hills Estates Bien Nacido is well-known as an 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. What is less well-documented is that the Millers also make Bien Nacido wines under their own estate labels and today “they are among the finest in California” (Antonio Galloni).

TASTING NOTES

Roasted beef, chipped asphalt and black currant conspire for a very deep and brooding but not overly powerful nose on this bottling from winemaker Trey Fletcher. The palate pops with thyme, rosemary, dried flowers and pepper, with the tangy black plum fruit only emerging with patience. Built to last.

TASTING NOTES

The spicy and earthy nose on this sprightly bottling from the iconic vineyard is superb: pressed mulberry, beet and rhubarb aromas lifted by thyme, star anise and bay leaf. The palate is slightly mellower, with rounded pomegranate and cherry notes cut by pine needle-like spice.

TASTING NOTES

Winemaker Trey Fletcher is creating texturally tantalizing wines that are exciting to sip now but built to last for years in the cellar. This shows lemon blossom, lemon skin, almond and macadamia scents, with a chalky minerality that's evident even on the nose. Racy, laser-focused acidity frames the palate, where lime, grapefruit and apple flavors unfold. Drink now through 2024.

The Millers soon realised that the natural conditions were ideal for viticulture. In their Region 1, they soon began growing grapes to produce their primary products: Bien Nacido Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Syrah. These wines all benefitted from the cooler Californian climate. The Bien Nacido vineyard was the first in California to produce Syrah wine.

Bien Nacido’s 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. Combining Bien Nacido’s terroir and the skills of the winemakers has resulted in the production of truly unique wines.Browse our range of Bien Nacido wines online today.
