B. Wise is a wine project 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 Sauvignon 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.
