About BREA Olson Vineyard Chardonnay
BREA Olson Vineyard Chardonnay comes from Olson Vineyard, one of the coldest vineyards in California. Planted in 1999 and farmed without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers. The wine is aged in neutral French oak barrels for six months and goes through full malolactic fermentation though retaining its fresh acidity. BREA wines are made naturally, meaning no use of inoculated yeasts or bacteria with only native yeast to spark fermentation. No powdered tannins or enzymes. A minimal dose of SO2 is added only before bottling some wines.
About BREA Wine Company
Chris Brockway, a noted California natural winemaker and owner of Broc Cellars, and Tim Elenteny, the libations logistics leader of Elenteny Imports, are the masterminds behind BREA Wine Company.
They have seen the thirst for site-specific, terroir-driven, and sustainably farmed wine become the driving force for many avant-garde California winemakers who gravitate toward varieties that flow outside the mainstream. BREA Wine Company seeks to capture this thirst while also bringing beloved classic varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir into the fold.
The two seek to create a wine that is beyond reproach by fostering close relationships with farmers and choosing vineyards known for their high-quality grapes. BREA wines are accessible in price, quality, and ready-to-drink but also suitable for short-term aging. Their goal is to open minds back up to these classic varietals.
