The hugely impressive and sought after wines of Bond are the brainchild of Harlan Estate’s Bill Harlan, who has signed the owners of these well-placed vineyards in selected micro-climates in Napa Valley to long contracts, all are made by the Harlan Estate winemaking team of Bob Levy and the world famous oenologist Michel Rolland.

These very small, elite properties were selected for their potential and to define the "Grand Crus" of the Napa Valley. There are now five vineyards in operation and the name Vecina is coined from the Spanish phrase for neighbour.

"...much earthier, spicier, more structured wine, much more masculine, with notes of scorched earth and almost Graves-like smoky, camphor and barbecue notes as well as black fruits galore. With its big, muscular structure and dense opaque/purple color, this wine actually seems younger in its evolution than either the St. Eden or Melbury... It’s a sensational wine." Robert Parker

"These three Bond wines, the third vintage from entrepreneur and proprietor Bill Harlan, continue to validate his visionary belief in their potential.” Robert Parker
