Frei Brothers Reserve was established in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley by Swiss immigrant Andrew Frei. In operation since 1890, Frei Ranch and the winery have played an integral part in establishing the region’s premier reputation for winemaking and continue to produce exceptional wines today by carrying on the rich legacy of both their home vineyard and Sonoma’s celebrated growing regions. Frei Brothers Reserve begins by growing the best grapes in the best growing regions and ends with award-winning wines. Frei Brothers Reserve also believes in better choices and better wine–today and for generations to come. Led by chief viticulturist Jim Collins, the wines are a pure expression of the land, made from premium grapes carefully grown in some of the best wine-growing regions in Sonoma County, including the Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Valley. The winery crafts six critically acclaimed wines, including Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc Read more »

  • Frei Brothers Reserve Dry Creek Zinfandel 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy, dusty and dry aromas of blackberry on the nose. This is punchy and fruit forward with full body, jammy strawberry, blueberry jam and a floral finish. Read More

  • Frei Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Alexander Valley 2013

  • Frei Brothers Reserve Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

  • Frei Brothers Sauvignon Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Light lemon and grapefruit notes. On the palate this is medium to light bodied with notes of melon and lemon, very light hints of spice and muted grassiness, and there are some oaky notes towards the finish. Though there is plenty of acidity and flavor here, it comes with a touch of flabbiness that is still not entirely unwelcome as part of the ... Read More

  • "OT, do you drink Gallo?"Yep, I do, as do many here. Gallo brands are far reaching. Look what's on my countertop right now... Frei Bros is a Gallo brand, so is Louis Martini. That Rancho Zabaco that EMark drank the other night, you guessed it, Gallo brand. They are a huge operation that produces a lot of pedestrian wine. They also make wines on ... Read More
