This week we are excited to showcase some new wines, new vintages, and old favorites from Neyers Vineyards.
Owners Bruce and Barbara Neyers have a unique and interesting story in the wine business. Bruce spent many years learning every aspect of the business, from cultivating the grapes, winemaking, to distribution. In 1991 he began Neyers Vineyards. At the time Bruce and Barbara began the winery, Bruce also accepted a position as national sales manager for Berkeley importer Kermit Lynch. Today he divides his time between these two positions.
Barbara followed her academic training and became a teacher but was soon able to pursue her love of food and cooking as a chef and eventually manager at Chez Panisse Restaurant in Berkeley. Hence, a great marriage of the food and wine culture
Bruce and Barbara raised three children on their home vineyard and ranch in the Conn Valley area of the Napa Valley, and now lead the varied and hectic lives of all vignerons; running a small business, growing grapes on their farm, and traveling around the country to oversee the distribution of their wines.
