In 1969, the Millers, a fifth-generation California farming family purchased a stretch of land in California's then-nascent Santa Maria Valley wine country. By the early 1970's, the Miller Family had planted the vineyard land, and christened it Bien Nacido Vineyards. Today it is the Most Vineyard designated Vineyard in the World. Wine & Spirits Magazine named it one of the Top 25 Vineyards in the World.
The terroir of Bien Nacido Vineyards is a combination of the rocky soils, cool climate and good people that work the vineyard on a daily basis. We would like to think that Bien Nacido Vineyards finds its true calling in the hands of those who farm and tent to it year round. It has something to say, and our winegrowing team has allowed it to find its voice through a mindful, dedicated and nearly obsessive commitment to excellence in farming.
