Willowbrook - Red Wine

Enjoying daytime heat but cooled by fog from the Pacific by night, our picturesque Estate vineyard is located along winding Burnside Road, deep in the Russian River Valley appellation. Planted largely to Swan and 115 clones, we have been farming this land since 2001.

ABOUT THE WINERY: WILLOWBROOK

From the vineyard to the glass, winemaker Joe Otos’ meticulous craftsmanship is present. Working in some of California’s most prestigious winemaking regions provides unique opportunities to produce wines of stunning character – but it doesn’t come easily. Walking the vineyards throughout the year, Joe checks on the grapes’ progress and oversees their development, paying attention to such details as the vineyard’s watering schedule, the pruning of the vines and the timing of fertilizer additions. “Spending time in the vineyard, chatting with the vineyard managers and getting to know the soils are key parts of getting the best out of each site,” Joe says. “You can only maximize the potential of the grapes if you have been a part of how they were farmed.”
