Haskell's Minnetonka

Meet the Owner: Thomas Bougetz of Bougetz Cellars

4:00pm - 6:00pm


Thomas Bougetz is the winemaker behind Bougetz Cellars and while working with vineyard owners throughout Northern California, he is constantly looking for new sources of fruit from well-established and well known vineyards. While his background is in Science and Technology, his interests in wine led him back to school to study winemaking at the Northwest Wine Academy in Seattle.

Quality can only be achieved if you start with great fruit. This philosophy has been paramount in selecting which vineyards are the sources used to showcase our amazing wines. Our emphasis is on Napa Valley, with vineyard sources in the mountains as well as the valley floor. Spending time in the vineyards, and working closely with the vineyard management teams provides us with the best opportunity for ideal fruit arriving at the winery during harvest.

Winemaker Thomas Bougetz's philosophy is to deliver well-balanced wines which express the true nature of the fruit that he sources from valley floor vineyards in Rutherford and Oakville, as well as mountain/hillside vineyards on Spring Mountain, Prichard Hill and Coombsville.

Rewards Members will receive DOUBLE POINTS on all Bougetz wines purchased during the tasting and bottle signing!
NO RSVP necessary, come when you can to meet Thomas!
