About BREA Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands
BREA Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands is sourced from two biodynamic vineyards in the Central Coast. The moon phases dictated the harvest. 100% destemmed into 5-ton open top fermenters. Fermented only using native yeasts and gently pumped over each morning and evening throughout fermentation. Delastage at the beginning and end of fermentation. Aged in neutral French oak 228L and 270L barrels for 10 months.
Both vineyards are enriched with many of Rudolph Steiner’s farming principles to enliven the soil and bring the grapes to life! The La Estancia area generates a regularity of fog at night and through the morning, followed by the wind in the afternoon. The soil consists of sandy loam and silty soils. The Sumida Sisters Vineyard is located in the historic Santa Lucia Highlands. Erin and Simon Phillips, the current vineyard owners, planted the 8 acres of Pinot Noir in 2010 located below their La Estancia Vineyard. The soil is alluvial and porous consisting of Chualar loam, granite, and sandstone -all which provide a nourishing environment for grapevines. Erin brings a fresh approach to farming this vineyard, maintaining balance with a light touch. She believes the essential ingredients to growing tasty grapes are fresh soil, air, water, and most importantly, adding loads of love!
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 the 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.
