Open:Â Year Round
Boeger Winery is owned by Greg Boeger. The wine at Boeger Winery is produced by Greg Boeger and Justin Boeger. Greg and Sue Boeger purchased the ranch in 1972 and started planting vineyards and built a new state-of-the-art-winery the following year. The old Fossati-Lombardo house was converted into a tasting room and was opened to the public in 1974. For over three decades the Boeger family has dedicated themselves to bringing you some of the Sierra Foothill's finest wines. The old cellar has recently been restored and is now used for special events and private gatherings.
Boeger Winery produces the following wine varietals: Barbera, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignane, Charbono, Chardonnay, GewÃ¼rztraminer, Grenache, Meritage, Merlot, MourvÃ¨dre, Muscat, Petite Syrah, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Primitivo, Rhone Varietals, Riesling, RosÃ©, Sangiovese, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Syrah/Shiraz, Viognier, White Zinfandel and Zinfandel.
Boeger Winery is located in the beautiful Sierra Foothills, 45 minutes east of Sacramento. We offer a combination of historical location and modern innovation, specializing in unique varietals and blends since 1972. Our grounds are open daily from 10am-5pm where visitors are welcome to enjoy our stunning picnic area, visit the historic old cellar and of course, sample our wines! We offer a complimentary tasting or a reserve tasting for $10.
Pretty setting. Good wine for a good price. Tasting prices are very reasonable. A nice alternative to the more famous yet more pricey Nappa Valley.
First and last time at Boeger for my family and I. We decided to stop by on 10-22-17 for a wine tasting and to purchase a few bottles. We are very familier with the wine but have never had the chance to visit. We elected to purchase the upgraded reserve tastings and eagerly awaited our first pour. this is where the problems started... The tasting bottles all contained a 1oz pour “stopper”, having experience in the restaurant industry I am familiar with these devices and have no problem when they are utilized properly. The issue I had with this situation is the bartenders did not wait for the full pour, she would continually fill 2 glasses without resetting the “stopper”, resulting in a 1/2 oz pour per glass. We attempted to bring this up but were quickly assured, and very rudely I might add, that it was an accurate “1oz” pour and that other wineries are too liberal with their pours resulting in Boegers appearing smaller...Our experience further declined as we felt “black balled” by the staff who offered little to no explanations about the wine they were pouring after we raised our previous concerns. Due to this and the fact we could not accurately taste the wine we did not purchase any additional items as was our intention. Needless to say we are very dissappointed with the experience and will avoid this product in the future. With so much competition in the local area and Napa being a short trip away I will be bringing my business to wineries who value their product and its patrons.
This was once a regular stop for my wife and I. Our last visit we discovered they now charge a tasting fee per person, but were told it could be applied to a wine purchase if we chose to buy a bottle of wine. They made us pay upfront and immediately before anything was poured. We were strictly limited to only 6 tiny tastings and they were poured into tiny glasses. Seriously, not even enough to get a good taste of the wine. They counted the tastings as if they were gold. They never spent any time explaining or discussing the wines. We decided to cut some of our loses of our tasting fees by purchasing a bottle of wine. Upon payment we were credited for only ONE tasting, not the two we paid for in advance and were told "only one credit per purchase". Sneaky! With so many better wineries in the Apple Hill area that offer free tasting, nicer people and better wines, there is no need to pay fees and be swindled. My wife and I, and our friends will never go back.
Absolutely the best wine I have tasted from the white to the red, I have been here several times and bring a picnic after the tasting and sit under the trees this place never disappoints and leave with several bottles love love love
Lovely, cozy little winery with great ambience throughout. Good selection of wines in the tasting room served by very friendly and knowledgeable staff.
