The Gnekow Family Winery (pronounced “nee-ko”) was established on the basis of two fundamental tenets: first, manufacture fine wines of excellent value using both Old and New World winemaking methods on the grapes from our unique region, and second, make exciting and enjoyable wines!
Our cutting-edge winery is situated in Collegeville, California, not far from Mondavi-Woodbridge, amid the undulating hills between San Francisco and Yosemite, about an hour from the Napa Valley. Since its first harvest in 1997, our signature wine, the Campus Oaks “Old Vine” Zinfandel, which is carefully chosen from our 80+ year old vines, has routinely garnered Gold Medals. We launched our Honor Series in 2004 and promote the advancement of our premium Old Vine Zinfandels to higher-caliber, award-winning levels. We are proud of the wines we make, the area we represent, and the people that work with us at Gnekow Family Winery to provide “Great Wines at Great Prices.” Our goal is to develop wines that are of the highest caliber while still being affordable, approachable, intriguing, and professional in every way.
