Beckstoffer Bourn VineyardMyriad Cellars Beckstoffer Bourn Cabernet Sauvignon
Beckstoffer Vineyards is committed to acquiring historic vineyards that produce wines of exceptional quality. The Bourn vineyard is newest addition to Heritage vineyards of Andy Beckstoffer and is no exception to this rule. The Bourn Vineyard was originally the vineyard of William Bowers Bourn II, considered the last Bonanza King of the California Gold Rush because of his ownership of the Empire Mine – the finest gold mine in California. Bourn is also credited with having built Greystone Cellars in St. Helena (currently the Culinary Institute of America Greystone). He purchased his vineyard in St. Helena in 1872 as a family home and much of the original vineyard land remains in the care of his descendants to this day. A portion of the original vineyard was purchased by Beckstoffer Vineyards in 2010. It is now planted with head-trained, old-growth Petite Syrah and various clones of Cabernet Sauvignon.
