Established in 1996 by Bill Harlan (owner of Harlan Estate and Promontory), Bond was created to produce a bespoke range of Californian red wines. The wines are predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon and produced with fruit from Bond’s five vineyards (or “Grand Crus” as they call them). Each features an array of different soil types and elevations.
With innovative winemaker Cory Empting on board since 2000, Bond has gone from strength to strength. These are some of the most sought-after wines in California, produced in frustratingly low quantities — as little as 450-600 cases per vintage.
