Our Family acquired this unique 16 acre property in Oakville in 1994 – it is comprised of a ten acre Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard and a historic restaurant we re-named “Brix”. After several years of selling our grapes to some of Napa Valley’s most prestigious wineries, we decided it was time to begin producing our own estate Cabernet Sauvignon to enjoy with family, friends, and patrons of our restaurants.
In recent years we’ve expanded our portfolio, sourcing grapes from small family-owned vineyards in Napa and Sonoma to produce Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Rosé, and Pinot Noir.
Fun Fact: “Brix” is a term often used in viticulture and winemaking. Brix (°Bx) is a measure of the sugar level (or ripeness) of the grapes and subsequently, the potential alcohol content of a wine before it's made. When our grapes measure a certain “degrees Brix” we know they are ready to pick.
