Bruce and Barbera Neyers began Neyers Vineyards and Winery in 1991 in the heart of Napa Valley. The move to start his winery was a long time coming. Bruce gained experience working in a variety of wine related positions; a French import company, as an apprentice winemaker in Germany and a 17 year stint at Joseph Phelps Vineyards. In addition to owning and operating a winery, Bruce is also the national sales manager for the importer Kermit Lynch. Bruce`s experience with French wines thanks to working with the Kermit portfolio has had an obvious influence on his own techniques in the vineyard and winery and this shows in the resulting wines.

Tasting Notes

Syrah is at its best in this rocky, low-nutrient soil. The grape is sensitive to warm weather, so here it faces north, away from the sun. The cool breezes from the Monterey Bay keep the hot weather at arm’s length, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly. Natural winemaking practices such as hand harvesting and crushing by foot (yes, by foot!) not machine. There is no racking for several months. Yeast lees are stirred by hand, and no SO2 is added until bottling. This is a polished and complex red.
