The bonner private wine partnership
America’s Most Unique
Our story begins five thousand miles away
Founder Will Bonner fell in love with Argentine wine when he moved his family to Buenos Aires in the early 2000s. After returning to the US, Will found himself disappointed at the cheap, mass-produced juice disguised as fine wine in his local shop...
Wine Unlike Anything You've Ever Tasted...
Straight from the Extreme Altitudes of the Andes Mountains
Grapes are grown at an altitude of 6,000-9,000 ft and above. Intense UV light and day/night temperature swings create berries with thicker skins, meaning more tannins and flavor compounds for robust, complex wines.
Packed with Intense Flavor & Antioxidant Power
Water scarcity creates smaller berries with more concentrated flavor & the thick skins developed by these grapes have high levels of polyphenols, including flavinoids & resveratrol
Rare, Small-batch wines from Family Producers
For 200 years now, a few small families deep in the Andes mountains have been making a dark malbec wine unlike anything else you’ve ever tasted. These wines are made in such small quantity, many wouldn't normally make it to the U.S.
Discovered By America's Top 'Wine Explorer'
“Way out at what felt like the end of the earth, I found families that had been making wine for 200 years... critics rave about this wine... but up until now it’s been impossible to find here in America.”
– Will Bonner, Founder, Bonner Private Wine Partnership
What Makes These Wines So Special?
Do you know where your wine comes from? Your local grocery store isn't going to mention that the mass-market wine you're buying is loaded with “mega-purple” dye and some oak extract...
Grapes from the remote vineyards of the Calchaqui Valley cling to survival through:
✓ Poor Soil (dry, dusty: excellent for grapes)
✓ Bad Weather (no rain, strong winds)
✓ Thin Atmosphere (breathing is hard work)
✓ Extreme UV levels (80% more intense than Bordeaux)
✓ Temperature drops as much as 77 degrees at night!
✓ Extreme Altitude (up to 9,000 ft.)
✓ Extreme Isolation (fewer pests require fewer chemicals)
After each collection, certain wines become available for members to purchase in larger numbers. Selections from across the world, with a particular focus on high & extreme altitude Argentine wines. Members only. Limited inventory, first come first served.
