Bonitata Boutique Wine is a unique winery, situated in the historic building built by Mr. Bernhard in 1874. The beautiful stone wall construction naturally insulates the building and keeps the wine at perfect temperature and humidity. The winery building is situated on the Bernhard museum property and open Wed – Sun for tasting.

Handcrafted Wine

Bonitata Boutique Wine prides itself on attention to detail. Each wine is handcrafted and barrel-aged then bottled at the right moment to deliver that special taste to your palate. Our grapes are hand picked from vineyards located in the Sierra Foothills. The grapes are picked just at the right balance of sugar, ph, and acid to produce a very special wine.

Tour the Winery & Meet the Winemaker

Bonitata Boutique Wine is located in the original Bernhard Winery founded in 1874, located at the Bernhard Museum at 291 Auburn Folsom Rd in Auburn, California, adjacent to the Gold Country Fair Grounds. This historic building is made of stone with two-foot thick walls which are partially buried into the hillside. The perfect storage for our handcrafted wines. After enjoying your wine tasting, you can take a tour of the rest of the museum.
