Family-owned and operated, Bontzu cellars is dedicated to producing wines that are terroir-driven and vineyard-designated. We are focused on Rhone and Bordeaux varietals, making wines in an uncompromising style, using traditional techniques carefully managed in a new world way. It all starts in the vineyard. This is the foundation of our wine philosophy: understand the vine, the soil, and the sky. Keep it natural, with minimal intervention. It is wishful thinking that one can alter the intrinsic qualities of the juice or of the wine during the vinification process. We can only retain the potential of the grape. A wine, and the vines it comes from, have to be in balance with the soil, the atmosphere, the energy from the solar system, and its intimate surroundings. We keep and implement these factors when growing grapes and during the winemaking process, by applying organic or sustainable practices on the vineyard we source our fruit from, with the ultimate goal of becoming a biodynamic wine producer of brilliant wines, and authentic wines for sure!
