Beckmen Vineyards consists of two separate vineyards with dramatically different soils and climates. We have created two maps of each of our vineyards to help our customers better understand how our wines were crafted. One version of the maps shows the various plantings of varietal clones and rootstocks, the other version lists the final wine the grapes are sourced for. These maps were just updated in February 2020.

The most exciting time of year has arrived… harvest! The 2019 harvest began on September 13 with all our Viognier fruit and some of our Chardonnay fruit; most of the grapes will be arriving to the winery in October and early November. Watch this video to discover what we’re up to during the late summer months, as we begin harvesting grapes for the 2019 vintage.
We frequently hear from our members how much they love being a part of our Wine Club. Over the years, our members have become our biggest ambassadors, sharing and recommending our wines with friends and family. At long last, we’ve created a way to reward our members for spreading the good word about our wines and winemaking philosophy: a Wine Club referral program!
