Bon Niche Cellars began in 2005 when Wally and Joyce
Murray started their quest to find vineyard property in the Central Coast of
California. The result of the search was a beautiful slope with a spectacular view of the distant hills. The rich soil, hot
days and brisk nights were 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 both straight varietals and artisan blends are primarily Bordeaux style with a touch of Rhone.
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. Visit the winery on county wide event weekends, for wine club member parties, or arrange for a wine tasting of your own.
