About Bogle Vineyards & Winery
The Bogle family has been farming in the Delta since the late-1800s, but the first wine grapes did not appear until 100 years later. The father and son team of Warren and Chris Bogle planted the first 20 acres of vines in Clarksburg, California in 1968. Today, Bogle Vineyards farms 1,900 acres of grapes using the latest sustainable growing techniques and processes. Bogle is one just a handful of wineries that pays its partner growers a per ton bonus for adhering to stringent sustainable practices and regulations. The success of Bogle over the years is firmly rooted in one thing: the day-to-day involvement of the Bogle family. This is the sixth generation of the Bogle family working in the Delta and with hard work and respect for the land, the Bogle family hopes to ensure another six generations are able to farm along the Sacramento River. http://www.boglewinery.com/
