Bon Niche. What does it mean? Loosely translated it’s a good niche. At Bon Niche Cellars we like to think of it as both a very good place, and a good niche in life. Making award winning wine in a beautiful vineyard. What could be better?
The winery and vineyard are located on a beautiful slope with a spectacular view of the distant hills. The rich soil, hot days and brisk nights are perfect for the French varietals that grow so well in the Paso Robles terroir. The vineyard is planted with Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Combined with fruit from nearby vineyards the artisan blends are primarily Bordeaux style, a few Rhone style are also offered.
Bon Niche Cellars produces single varietals of outrageously good Malbec, and Petit Verdot along with traditional Bordeaux style blends under the brand name Bon Niche™. It’s cousin label Birdland Cellars bottles other delights including Zinfandel, Syrah and a Cab Blend.
The remote location, just on the fringe of civilization provides the adventuresome wine drinker with a delightful experience. The 15 minute drive from town is well worth the trip. The winery is open during event weekends, for wine club parties as well as for personalized tastings by appointment.
