Boeger Winery

Boeger Winery In the three decades since Boeger Winery was founded, we have been committed to only one standard: quality. We have built on our education and experience to produce exceptional wines. We are able to control the quality of our wines because we grow over 90% of our grapes. We are small enough to allow full attention to detail. Boeger is committed not only to making the highest quality wines, but to pushing the boundaries of winemaking as well. Greg Boeger was one of the state's first producers of a varietal Merlot when it was virtually unheard of in California. Today he is a pioneer of innovative blends, drawing from over twenty-five varieties of grapes grown at the estate. Boeger is quickly becoming known for bringing new and uncommon varietals to the market place. We look forward to your visits!

Products



  Barbera
Love at first taste! One’s senses are delightfully greeted by intense plum jam, cedar box, red pepper, vanilla and caramel aromas that eventually yield to more subtle nuances of sweet spice, toasted oak, ripe cherries. Spicy pepper, caramel and ripe fruit characters pair up to dance on the fore and mid-palates, giving way to softer, jammy components in the finish.
  Cabernet Franc
The 2001 estate bottled Cabernet franc is a medium-full-bodied, spicy wine that balances moderate tannins with soft acidity.
  Cabernet Sauvignon
This El Dorado grown Bordeaux is fruit dominated, ruby red and velvety. It has evenly balanced acids, mouth filling hints of fresh bright berries, and a distinct herbaceous quality.
  Estate Zinfandel
Black pepper, raspberry jam, and ripe black cherries leap out of the glass of 2002 Estate Zinfandel, followed by more subtle hints of toasted oak and caramel. A spicy fore-palate leads into a round, ripe fruit-dominated mid-palate and then tapers off slowly to a toasty finish.This vintage Estate Vineyard Zinfandel will hold up to a bit of bottle aging. As always, we strive to make our wines drinkable from the get-go, but this wine will age up to seven years.
  Hangtown® Gold Lot #12
Hangtown® Gold Lot #12 is a proprietal blend of four grape varieties. Sauvignon Blanc serves as the base for this blend, providing structure and backbone. White Riesling, the secondary component, provides the crispness and long finish. Flora, a U.C. Davis developed hybrid of Gewurtztraminer and Semillón contributes a delicate floral aroma (hence its name). Semillón, last but not least, is added for additional complexity and structure. Sweet melon, honeysuckle, pear, peach and floral aromas dominate the nose of the Lot #12 Hangtown® Gold. A crisp fore-palate tapers slowly into a long, lasting finish while citrus and ripe peach and apricot flavors dance upon the tongue.
  Hangtown® Red Lot #32
Lot #32 is our popular table blend-great for sipping or pairing with your favorite grilled foods. Its nose is full of cherries and earthy fruitiness with a lingering clean finish. It’s a bargain for only $8/bottle!
  Merlot
We made the 2003 Merlot in a fruit-forward style balanced with moderate use of new French oak. Blackberry, strawberry and black cherry aromas are tempered by nice butteriness, vanilla, honey, and toasted oak.† On the palate, the sweet oak and soft tannin-acid balance combine to produce a merlot that starts slow and finishes long! This Merlot is drinkable now through four years and will pair well with almost any meal.
  Muscat Canelli
Clover honey, mandarin orange, and ripe pears dominate the aromatic profile of the 2002 Muscat Canelli. Soft acidity and rich sweetness combine to make this a delicate dessert wine.
  Pinot Gris
2004 Pinot Gris is bright with aromas of fresh lemon and grapefruit with an underlying presence of spearmint and dried coconut. The zesty lively palate has hints of pineapple enhanced by the crisp, sharp acidity that is perfect for a summer picnic.
  Pinot Noir
This Pinot Noir exhibits many of the grapes typical characteristics. Subtle cherry aromas and a delicate earthiness combine to form the aromatic backbone of this Pinot and soon yield to even subtler aromas of caramel, butter, vanilla and French oak. On the palate, the same earthiness and fruit shine through. It has a very soft fore-palate, round middle and a slow finish. Enjoy this Pinot Noir right away with your favorite cheeses or light meals.

  Reserve Barbera
This 2001 vintage of Vineyard Select Barbera has dense aromas of cloves and fig, with bright raspberry and a toasty oak background of coffee, caramel and vanilla. This wine is full-bodied and well-rounded with soft acidity and soft tannin structure.
  Reserve Meritage
Meritage has aromas of black currents and earthy herbaceous notes. It is rich and inky with abundant tannins and dark berry characteristics. The finish is spicy and long lasting.
  Reserve Migliore
Migliore is a blend of three Italian varietals: 42% Refosco, 37% Charbono and 21% Sangiovese. This vintage has lush aromas of black current, blackberry, fresh cranberry and pome granite. It is inky dark with subtle oak and licorice undertones. Smooth and flavorful with a bit of zing, this wine is ready to drink but will also age nicely for the next few years.
  Reserve Moscato
Reserve dessert wine.
  Reserve Old Clone Zinfandel
Our Reserve style Zinfandel is called "Old Clone" because the grapes were propagated from the first Zinfandel vines planted on the property in the late 1800's by the original homesteaders. This vintage has aromas of toasted oak, strawberry jam, ripe plums and vanilla, followed by subtler nuances of spice and pepper. The full-bodied 2002 Old Clone exhibits flavor components of caramel, vanilla, blackberry, clove, and plum.
  Reserve Petite Sirah
Black Pepper, caramel, vanilla, clove and honey are just a few of the aromatic components that jump out of a glass of 2002 Reserve Petite Sirah. A very complex wine, more and more aromas develop as the wine breathes. Tannin structure dominates this wine, as is typical with Petite Sirah. However, a soft acidity balances it out to produce a wine that is drinkable right away. Due to the tannins, though, this wine will age well for quite a few years. For those that like the tannin of Petite Sirah, enjoy it by itself. For those that are intrigued by its flavors and aromas, but arenít used to tannins try it with your heartiest meat recipe.
  Reserve Tempranillo
Our Tempranillo is made in a typical Rioja style, with a minimum of two years aging in neutral oak barrels. As in Spain, we blend our Tempranillo with the other Rioja varietals of Graciano, Carineña, Garnacha and (what the Spaniards consider an "experimental" component) Cabernet Sauvignon. Cedar, leather, earth and tobacco notes dominate the aromatic profile of the 2000 Tempranillo while subsequent layers of clove, pepper, and dried fruit begin to surface after a little breathing time. On the palate those same characteristics expressed in the nose make themselves known on the tongue, albeit in a different order. However, the dried fruit aroma character morphs into a lush, ripe fruit character on the mid palate. The integrated acid-tannin structure lasts from beginning to end, gently tapering off in a long, slow finish. Try this wine with a fine Basque meal. This Tempranillo, with good acidity and tannin structure, is made to age. Feel free to drink it now, but if you can resist, lay a few bottles down in the cellar to try after five or ten years.
  Sauvignon Blanc
The first aromas to leap out of a glass of 2004 Sauvignon Blanc are cantaloupe and honeysuckle, followed after a few minutes by subtler aromatics like butter and apricot. On the palate, grapefruit, orange, and perhaps a hint of lemon make their debut along with a crisp fore-palate and a long, lingering finish. Enjoy this wine all by itself or with hors d'oeuvres on any warm summer evening and with many lighter meals, especially sushi or other fish.
  Walker Zinfandel
The 2003 Walker Vineyard is an intensely colored, richly textured and full-bodied Zinfandel. It has strong spicy, jammy, and blackberry aromatic notes. On the palate, this well-structured wine exhibits strong tannins and balanced acids. A long tapering finish makes it a delight to enjoy by itself or to pair with any number of hearty dishes. Of all the recent Walker Vineyard Zinfandels, this one is probably the most age-worthy. More highly extracted and with bigger tannin structure than the others, it can comfortably lay down for 5-6 years.
  White Riesling
The 2004 White Riesling has aromas of peach, apricot, honey and butterscotch. A delicate but pronounced fore-palate is dominated by sweet honey and baked peach flavors. As the flavors subside, a soft finish lingers long on the palate.
