Rugged… Isolated… First settled by the Brandlin family, historic Brandlin ranch is a 170-acre pearl on Mount Veeder, overlooking the Napa Valley.
As early as the 1870s, the Brandlins settled on these steep, rocky slopes, becoming grape growing pioneers in Napa’s Mount Veeder region.
With over 50 years of experience, they staked their claim to the Brandlin Ranch and planted their own vineyards in 1926. Purchased by Cuvaison Estate Wines in 1998, this noble site has been carefully restored, remaining home to many of its original vines and Chester Brandlin himself.
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.”
