B. Wise is a wine project founded by proprietor Brion Wise that brings together the best that Sonoma and Napa vineyards have to offer. As part of that, we sought winemaking expertise that would allow us to take the best advantage of extraordinary vineyard sites. In 2002 we began working with Massimo Monticelli, who came to us from Silver Oak, as the winemaker for the B. Wise Estate. Mark Herold brings us depth in our Napa Cabernet portfolio from his pioneering oenology work for Joseph Phelps and his own successful Merus Cabernet. Rounding out our Pinot Noir portfolio, we include an offering from the classic region for that grape, the Willamette Valley in Oregon. Drew Voit, former winemaker for Shea Vineyards in Oregon, has joined us to work with Massimo on our Pinot Noirs.
Before planting a single grape vine or laying a building cornerstone, Brion spent a lot of time walking the property and sitting on overturned buckets considering what view he wanted from which place, and how the vineyard rows should be laid out. Then, with help from our friend John Caldwell, known in parts of Napa as the King of Clones, the estate vineyards were planted in 2002.
In designing our home and the various winery buildings and outdoor areas, we found ourselves instinctively minimizing the usual boundaries between indoors and outdoors. We found a style that is not only comfortable and pleasing but also completely natural to this landscape, something we first enjoyed while visiting Italy and Provence and brought back with us to Sonoma. It seems a natural place to bring people and our wines together.
