A brief history

High on the steep, rocky slopes of Napa Valley’s famed Mount Veeder, Brandlin Estate has earned renown as the source for some of California’s most extraordinary mountain-grown wines.

The story of Brandlin Estate began in the 1870s, when the Brandlins emigrated from Switzerland. Their alpine heritage led them to pioneer a homestead high on Mount Veeder. Where others saw challenges, they saw untapped potential, and soon the family was farming orchard fruit, and running the local grain store and stagecoach.
In 1926, Henry Brandlin added winegrowing to the list of family businesses when he planted the first vines at Brandlin Estate—vines that still thrive today.

Located above the fog line, like an island in the sky, Brandlin Estate spans 120 acres of pristine woodlands, and 49 acres of vines spread across a ridgetop that rises to over 1,250 feet. The wines of Brandlin Estate honor the classic terroir of Mount Veeder, offering luxurious fruit, velvety plushness and an ideal union of power and grace. With its high altitude, decomposed granite soils and proximity to the cooling influence of San Pablo Bay, Mount Veeder regularly offers Napa Valley’s longest growing season and lowest average yields. As a result, our estate grapes ripen to perfection, producing small, highly concentrated clusters and berries. Planted as a mosaic of small vineyard blocks to accentuate the site’s diversity, Brandlin Estate includes 12 blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon, featuring five different clones, small blocks of Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, as well as the coveted old-vine Zinfandel planted by the Brandlin family in 1926. In keeping with our commitment to the environment and our belief in preserving the beauty and vitality of our historic vineyard for generations to come, Brandlin Estate is Napa Green Certified.
