At Brassfield Estate, we believe wine is truly an expression of the grapes and where they are grown. Soils, microclimates, and vineyard practices are the major contributing factors for world class wine. The very finest wines in the world have one thing in common: They are all estate-grown and estate-bottled, meaning that they are crafted entirely from grapes grown on the winery’s own property where they are vinified and bottled on the premise. This principle is the foundation at Brassfield Estate. With High Valley’s diverse soils & microclimates, we have planted 19 different varietals covering over 350 acres of vineyard. Brassfield Estate controls every aspect of the Viticultural development: •Careful research matching correct varietals to optimal vineyard site. •Development control in planting for spacing, row direction, canopy/trellis development and choice of root stock. •Farming philosophy of sustainable agriculture and deficit irrigation done with meticulous care for optimum grape quality. •Harvest practices of hand picking, use of half ton bins and limited movement to winery to prevent fruit damage. •Winemaking in the hands of winemaker.

Named an AVA in 2005, Lake County's High Valley appellation is one of California's newest. The valley floor is at 1,800 feet with ridges rising above 3,000 feet in altitude and its soils are a combination of volcanic and alluvial fans. Brassfield's 12.5-acre block of merlot at High Serenity Ranch is planted on benchland in the western hills of High Valley where the soils are known for their excellent drainage and low vigor potential. The resulting wine smells cherry cobbler and new leather. On the palate it's soft and delicate with hints of coriander and sage to support the fruit. Small amounts of cabernet franc and petit verdot are added for structure and color.
