Brack Mountain Wine Company was founded in 2008 by three friends with a shared vision and passion – to produce age-worthy, handcrafted wines. Today, they are a thriving winery with more than fifteen fine wine brands, located in the Russian River Valley near Sebastopol, California.
Brack Mountain doesn’t follow the pack. They look at things differently, and they’re not afraid to break with convention. They build efficiency into everything they do, while using techniques that have withstood the test of time. They value hard work and intellectual nimbleness, and most of all, they love a challenge.
Their winemaking team is small, but mighty. They are tirelessly committed to producing interesting, hand-crafted wines with a sense of provenance, lower alcohol and brighter acidity levels. They seek out passionate and devoted growers who know their land, and farm it with pride and attention to detail.
It is under the Bench label that Brack Mountain Winery produces this extraordinary wine.
Every wine that our team makes is vinified using the same time-honored techniques: small lots handled with minimal intervention, native yeast fermentations, and no crushing, pumping, fining, or filtering.
Our wines benefit from the nuance of tightly grained, French oak barrels that highlight savory notes, elevate the wine’s natural aromatics and provide a framework for the subtle aromas that make a wine a great wine.
Whether working with a legendary vineyard or a site just coming into its own, our wines retain a sense of the earth, climate and farming from where they came.
