After growing up in Nebraska and working in Seattle, Chris Brockway arrived in California to study winemaking. Following a textbook education at UC Davis and Fresno State, Chris’s experience of drinking and enjoying more low-intervention wines persuaded him to take a somewhat different path to most of his classmates. In 2002 he began working at an urban winery in Oakland, before leaving in 2006 to set up his own label from a small industrial unit in Berkeley. Today he runs his operation from a slightly bigger premises around the corner, but the focus remains producing wines from organic or biodynamic fruit in a decidedly hands-off fashion – natural ferments and no additions (save for the odd SO2 adjustment when required).
An unusual white blend from Chris Brockway; this fresh, lively California wine will have you falling in love at first sip.
-Aromas of lemon and pear; medium-bodied with a luscious palate.
-A blend of majority Marsanne with a small proportion of Roussanne and Viognier.
-Made as naturally as possible; a true expression of the Central Coast.
