- In 2007 Bergeron Winery was born, a small family-owned boutique premium winery producing limited quantities of single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Chardonnay wines, with more varietals on the way. The grapes they use are grown in high elevation vineyards located in the Red Hills and Pine Mountain Appellations within the Mayacamas mountain range. Their wine-making philosophy is driven by passion and a desire to express a pure transition of grape to bottle. They believe that “Wine is bottled poetry.”
