“At Brewer-Clifton, we believe that the geographic, geologic and climatic uniqueness of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation provide an ideal place to grow Chardonnay and Pinot Noir of intensity, complexity and specificity.” — Founder & Winemaker, Greg Brewer.

Established in 1996, Brewer-Clifton was born from Greg Brewer’s vision to produce world class wines from California’s Sta. Rita Hills appellation. Focusing on the Burgundian roots of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Brewer pays homage to France while forging an independent style that is uniquely Californian. The resulting wines embrace the power, pedigree and richness of Sta. Rita Hills that have become the trademark style of Brewer-Clifton.

Sourcing from multiple estate holdings throughout Sta. Rita Hills, including the Machado, Hapgood, Acin and 3D Vineyard, Brewer-Clifton uses sustainable farming methods to achieve a balance between the site, the vines, and the microclimates in each parcel. This helps to ensure that the wines convey the characteristics inherent to each of the estate vineyard sites, with uncompromising quality.
