Winemaker Robert Goyette brings 5 decades of winemaking experience to Stephen Vincent Wines. Founder of the early Boutique Winery, La Crema, Bob Goyette grew in skill and experience at the Benziger Winery, where he started the Imagery Series program (which today still puts out some of the state’s most sought-after, hard-to-find wines), and where he honed his artisan winemaking, chef-esque skills. The winemaking tools are his spice rack, and the grape varieties and vineyards his ingredients. He got first dibs on Benziger’s top single vineyard fruit, which he used to craft countless small-lot bottlings through the 1980s and 1990s. He lets traditional winemaking methods guide him while keeping an eye on the creative use of modern technology to create superior wines of great value for the current market. Today, he leads the winemaking team at Stephen Vincent and Robert Goyette wineries.
Care and craft go into every bottle of Stephen Vincent Wines, hand-crafted Sonoma County Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; and North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc. These youthful, fruit-forward wines are made to be enjoyed young, and often.
Both the Robert Goyette and Stephen Vincent wines offer incredible value from a wine industry icon, who feels more pride to see his wines in a glass than on a shelf with a three-figure price tag.
