Bon Niche Cellars Description


Bon Niche Cellars started in 2005 when Wally and Joyce Murray began their quest to find vineyard property in the Central Coast of California.  The result of their search was a beautiful slope with a spectacular view of the distant hills to the west.


The vineyard is located on a 10 acre parcel with rich soil, hot days and brisk nights that are perfect for the French varietals that grow so well in the Paso Robles terroir.  The Murray's vineyard was quickly planted with Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.  Combined with fruit from nearby vineyards, the artisan blends are primarily Bordeaux style with a touch of Rhone.

Bon Niche Cellars is currently producing single varietals of Malbec, Petit Verdot, Syrah, and Chardonnay along with five to eight red blends, under the brand names of Bon Niche™ and it's cousin label, Birdland Cellars.  Both brands can be acquired through Bon Niche Cellars.


The remote vineyard, just on the fringe of civilization, makes having a full time tasting room prohibitive.  For the moderately adventuresome, the drive on partially unpaved road is well worth the trip. Schedule a wine tasting in advance and enjoy the journey and the destination's country ambiance.
