Welcome to our tasting room just a few feet from our closest vineyard. We are open Monday-Friday 12- 4 pm and Sat-Sunday 11 am-5pm. Tasting and tours can be arranged for private groups by appointment.
West Wines is a family vineyards and winery operation run by husband and wife Bengt Akerlind and Katarina Bonde, two Swedish-Americans with a passion for growing grapes and making fine wine.
Winemaking for our Cabernet Sauvignon wine combines the best of traditional Bordeaux winemaking and New World modern techniques. Our Sauvignon Blanc and our Viognier are crafted in the same traditional way to create flavorful, fruity and fresh wines. We also ake two exciting blends: our Bordeaux blend West Crest Cuvée, a blend of our Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc and West Tuscan Cuvee, made from Sangovese anCabenet Sauvignon. All grapes for our wines come from our sustainably farmed vinyeards and are hand harvested and meticulously sorted to ensure the highest quality.
In our team we have winemaker Phyllis Zouzounis and vineyard manager Duff Bevill. Phyllis has a wealth of experience making wines for the past 35+ years in prestigious Sonoma-based wineries and Duff has planted and managed vinyeards in the Dry Creek Valley for over 40 years.
