The Brander Vineyard, situated on 52 acres of land just east Los Olivos, was purchased by the Brander family in 1974. The site was chosen by Fred Brander due to its propitious combination of factors: a gently south-facing position, excellent soil, and a climate ideally suited to growing the grape varieties found in the Bordeaux region of France.The first vines on the property were planted in 1975 with ten acres of Sauvignon Blanc, six acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, five acres of Merlot, and two and a half acres of Semillon. While the list of varieties grown here has remained Bordeaux-centric, we now have additional small plantings of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Gris, and Syrah in our quest to make complimentary and interesting blends with our estate white and red Bordeaux varietals.There is an adage in the wine industry that great wine starts in the vineyard, and we firmly believe in this philosophy. Our skilled and experienced vineyard team works with every single vine in the vineyard through the course of each growing cycle: from pruning the vines in late winter, to shoot thinning and shoot positioning in the spring, to dropping excess fruit and engaging in canopy management in the summer, and, finally, to harvesting the grapes at the absolute peak of ripeness and balance in the fall, we treat the vines with the utmost respect.
