Brandlin is a Napa Valley estate that produces wine from a small, historic vineyard in the Mount Veeder appellation. The wines pay homage to the Brandlin family.
As early as the 1870s, the Brandlins settled on these steep, rocky slopes, and became grape growing pioneers in Napa’s Mount Veeder region. With over 50 years’ of experience, Henry Brandlin staked the family’s claim to this estate and planted their own vineyards in 1926.
In 1998 Cuvaison Estate Wines was honored by Henry’s son, Chester Brandlin, with rights to purchase Brandlin Vineyard. Respectfully maintaining the integrity of the estate, only a fraction of the land has been planted to vineyards carefully designed to honor the integral beauty of the property. Glens of old oak trees and sustainable viticultural practices support natural biodiversity and abundant wildlife.
“We brought to Brandlin Vineyard all the lessons of Cuvaison Estate Wines’ 38 years of viticulture – great care in the study of sun exposures and soil types, and profound respect for the environment. Our intention is to honor the Brandlin family with a namesake vineyard that produces intense and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon.”
