Meet Our Winemaker

"The only thing that inherently exists in all things is love"

Brandon Armitage President/Winemaker,  Brandon spent some years in the world of horticulture and through his relationship with plants was guided toward moving to New Zealand and studying viticulture.  While completing his technical degree in Viticulture he was volunteering all of his free time to winemaking.  Working for Carrick Wines in New Zealand a love for Pinot noir was born.  After years of traveling back and forth from northern hemisphere, Colorado/Oregon/California, to southern hemisphere, New Zealand, making wine he was able to develop the skills needed to grow and nurture grapes into the best Pinot noir the Santa Cruz Mountains has to offer!
