Gnekow Family Winery (pronounced “nee-ko”) was founded upon two essential principles; first – handcraft quality wines that represent exceptional values by applying Old and New World winemaking techniques to the grapes from our distinctive region and second – create wines that would be fun and exciting!
Their state-of-the-art winery is located in Stockton, California about an hour from the Napa Valley, in the rolling hills between San Francisco and Yosemite, not far from Mondavi-Woodbridge. Gnekow's signature wine, the Campus Oaks “Old Vine” Zinfandel, is selectively chosen from their 80+ year old vineyards and has consistently won Gold Medals every year since it’s initial harvest in 1997.
At Gnekow Family Winery, they are proud of the wines they produce, the region they represent and the people who help them create “Great Wines at Great Prices”. Gnekow Family Winery's commitment is to produce quality, value-oriented, easy-to-drink and interesting wines while maintaining their friendly professional approach to doing business.
Fun Fact: In 2011, the movie "The Chateau Meroux" starring Marla Sokoloff, Barry Watson, Amanda Righetti, and Christopher Lloyd was filmed on location at Gnekow Family Winery. In addition to the picturesque vineyard setting, the incredible scenes of actual winemaking are real and the blends created in the movie are actually sold in limited release.The Chateau Meroux features two wines that are integral to the plot of the story: The Chateau Meroux Merlot and the YN, a value-oriented blend of Syrah and Zinfandel.
