West Wines is a small winery run by Bengt Akerlind and Katarina Bonde. We produce wines from our own vineyards located in Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, California. Our winemaking is inspired by French traditions of crispness and complexity combined with the fruity and rich flavors of grapes grown on Californian soil. More about our story here.
