Boekenoogen Vineyard & Winery
Family owned and operated, Boekenoogen Vineyards and Winery may be new to the wine world but their family roots run deep! Boekenoogen Vineyard and Winery is located in the heart of the Santa Lucia Highlands.
Established in 1998, John Boekenoogen transformed his family’s fifth generation cattle ranch into a vineyard producing outstanding grapes and now very fine wine. John’s Great Grandfather, George Boekenoogen, came across the United States in covered wagons in search of gold in the late 1850’s. When gold mining did not pan out as planned George Boekenoogen decided to come to the Salinas Valley, purchase property, and start The Boekenoogen Cattle Ranch.
