The Miller family are pioneers of the area, having planted the Bien Nacido vineyard in 1973, which has gone on to be labeled “Top Grand Cru Vineyard,” “Vineyard of the Year,” and “Top 25 Vineyard of the World.” Since then, many of California’s greatest producers have sought out blocks of the famed vineyard to say that they too made wine from one of California’s greatest vineyards. In 2006 the Miller family decided to keep the best sites back and start making small amounts of wine under the Bien Nacido Estate label. With decades of experience farming experience in the vineyard, and an incredible winemaking team, they now craft some of the best Pinot Noir in all of California.
In addition to being able to offer you the mixed case, we are also going to host brand manager Will Costello Master Sommelier on a zoom call to taste and talk about the wines with you and give you a chance to ask the questions to a true expert. This call will happen July 9th at 7pm. A week prior to the event you will receive an email with the meeting ID and password.
Bien Nacido Estate Pinot Noir 2016
"Intense cranberry and raspberry aromas meet with sultry baking spices, dried ginger, exotic wood and game on the nose of this bottling. The palate is intense in the same red fruits but layered in wild sagebrush and roasted quail, with bright acidity that is strong yet balanced. Drink now to 2036.”

Bien Nacido 'Well Born' Pinot Noir 2018
From declassified fruit from the exact same vineyards as the $100-$200 top wines. Great winemakers make great wines, from their ‘grand cru’s’ to their entry level wines. With that in mind, we could not be more excited to offer you a window into the winemaking style of one of California’s greatest wineries. This wine has a vibrant nose that gives way to a palate full of red fruit and savory notes that define the Bien Nacido style. INCREDIBLE value for money.
Bien Nacido 'Well Born' Chardonnay 2018
From declassified fruit from the exact same vineyards as the $100-$200 top wines. Great winemakers make great wines, from their ‘grand cru’s’ to their entry level wines. With that in mind, we could not be more excited to offer you a window into the winemaking style of one of California’s greatest wineries. Having tasted this with Will – I was AMAZED at the freshness and texture to this wine. It has the wonderful California fruit but none of the excess weight that can make some very rich California Chardonnays tiring to drink. This is an absolute crowd pleaser and is a must for a summer meal in the sun.

One of the oldest cool-climate vineyards in California and home of the world’s most single vineyard designations, Bien Nacido Vineyard has been an acclaimed source of world-glass grapes and estate wine since its founding in 1973 by brothers Stephen and Bob Miller.
Meaning ‘well born’ in Spanish, Bien Nacido was planted on the historic site of the Rancho Tepusquet land grant, a plot of land that was granted to Tomás Olivera in 1837, when California was still a part of Mexico. The Olivera Family’s adobe, built in 1857, still graces the estate today.
Purchased by the Miller Family in 1969, what is now Bien Nacido Vineyard began as the shared vision of brothers Bob and Steve Miller - to develop a vineyard that would be acknowledged as among the elite vineyards of the world. Four years of hard work led to the original vineyard plantings – 300 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Since then, under the Miller Family’s stewardship, Bien Nacido Vineyard has become one of the most coveted sources of cool-climate Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah in California.
