"It is our primary goal
and priority to deliver the essence of that vineyard
as clearly and honestly as possible."
At Brewer - Clifton, there is an utmost respect
for nature. We believe that when working with a product
of nature, it is necessary to always maintain an
awareness of the elements and phenomena that are
beyond our total understanding and control. If at
any time that level of sensitivity is lessened, we
risk the unavoidable degradation of the very goals
that we are trying to pursue. As such, any intervention
in the natural evolution of the product must be carried
out with the utmost attentiveness and care.
We believe that the geographic, geologic and climatic
uniqueness of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation provide
an ideal place to grow chardonnay and pinot noir
of intensity, complexity and specificity. Within
the appellation, each vineyard carries its own imprint.
Our mission and indeed our passion is to present
wines that convey the characteristics inherent to
each of these sites, with uncompromising quality.
