The most unusual thing you'll notice when you visit Boeger Winery is the seemingly endless wine list. It is standard for a winery to have a few wines on a list comprised of three or four varietals. We feature fifteen wines at a time, or more! This is not a lack of focus, we do it, frankly, because we can. The terroir, or combination of soil type, climate, and topography of the El Dorado AVA is an infinitely complex one. The region has a radical elevation range of 1,200 to 3,500 feet, a dense, steep and maze-like patchwork of foothills that host a wide variety of micro-climates and five major agricultural soil types.
Nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains, the vines of El Dorado enjoy clear, warm growing days with unimpeded sun exposure which develops intense fruit characteristics in the wine. The nights, however, are very cool due to the mountain air that flows down from the high peaks as the sun goes down. The cool nights ensure good structure and acidity in the wines. The endless combinations of elevation, exposure, microclimates and soil type, give adventurous winemakers the opportunity to plant different varietals to their hearts' delight.
Barbera - Our flagship wine
Spanish and Italian varietals do particularly well at the Boeger estate. The most notable of which is our most popular wine, Barbera.
