"The 2013 vintage was great for Chardonnay, giving us long, sunny days with mild temperatures that retained the fruit's natural acidity. Our fermentation was carried out in a mixture of new and used French oak barrels using native wild yeast, and periodically lees stirring. The finished wine is rich and creamy with a charming butterscotch component, and a trace of grilled bread in the aroma." -Winery

Begun in 1992 by Bruce and Barbara Neyers and their winemaking partner, Ehren Jordan, Neyers Vineyards produces 15,000 cases of wine annually. They rely primarily on Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the Neyers' 50-acre Conn Valley ranch farmed by Hugo and Lupe Maldonado. Additioanl grapes are purchased from a select group of growers, several of which are identified on the labels of wines produced from grapes they have grown. In 1999 Neyers purchased the 30-acre Sage Canyon Winery in the foothills east of Rutherford and have developed that facility for their entire production that also includes Syrah, Grenache, Zinfandel and Chardonnay.
