It’s now nearly 50 years since father and son Chris and Warren Bogle established their first vineyard on eight hectares of land near Clarksburg in California. While the Bogle estate has since expanded to cover 14 different sites in the cooler areas of the Delta region near Sacramento, the boutique philosophy embraced from the outset still continues.
Family remains vital too – brother Ryan and sister Jody have joined Warren in the running of the company – and that extends to the friendly cellar door operation, including a relaxed green space where visitors can kick back and enjoy one of the Bogle’s delicious wines. That might include the Bogle Viognier or Petite Sirah, wines produced exclusively for Enotria and the company’s cellar door. Indeed, such is the Viognier’s popularity that production has now been increased to meet eager demand.
